The high-performance Mercedes-AMG A45 hatchback will be available by the end of this year. Under the hood will be a powerful engine 382/416 hp

Photos of the disguised prototype of the long-awaited German novelty appeared at the disposal of foreign publications a couple of minutes ago. It is reported that the prototype of the “charged” Mercedes-AMG A45 stood in the parking lot somewhere in Munich, Germany. In front of the car there is a camouflage film hiding in particular the Panamericana false radiator grille.

With less ground clearance, as well as a set of alloy wheels, which had a dubious design, the black prototype of the powerful A45 demonstrates its quadrangular exhaust pipes. Recall that a slightly less powerful version with the A35 index received a double exhaust. The spoiler on the roof of this test car is quite unusual, and we are sure that this is not the final appearance of the model, given that the same A35 has a more aggressive exterior.

It is known that under the hood of the Mercedes-AMG A45 will be a 2.0-liter gasoline engine with a turbine, which will be offered in two power options.

The base model will get 382 horsepower (+ 6 hp compared to the old A45), while the flagship version of the A45 S will have 416 hp The latter figure is even more than the “hot” Audi RS3, despite its larger in-line 2.5-liter engine.

Mercedes may hold a public demonstration of the new A45 on March 5 of this year on the first day of a press conference at the Geneva Motor Show. If this is true, then in the coming weeks on the Internet may appear more detailed information about the long-awaited novelty.
