Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG won’t be sold in the U.S. image

Mercedes-Benz has recently announced that the A45 AMG won’t be launched in the United States.

After it was officially unveiled just a few weeks ago, the all-new Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the German based automaker making an announcement which probably won’t be appreciated by Americans. According to the car manufacturer, the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG won’t be sold in the United States and it seems that the future hot hatch will probably be launched in Europe for the moment.

The Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG is coming with a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which is producing a total output of 354 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque. The unit is mated to a seven-speed automatic double clutch transmission, similar to the one used on the SLS AMG, which is sending power to the Haldex all-wheel drive system. The A45 AMG is also coming with a new chassis, with 25 mm lowered suspension, with a sports exhaust system, with AMG brakes and 18-inch wheels signed by AMG (19-inch available as an option). The Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG will be officially presented to the public at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and it will go on sale across the Old Continent right after the Swiss automotive event.
