Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG going to L.A. Auto Show

Mercedes-Benz is planning to introduce the CLA45 AMG to the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, which will officially open its gates on the 28th of November.

The German based automaker is getting closer and closer to developing a rival for the new BMW M135i sedan, which will be named the CLA45 AMG, and it will be based on the same flexible platform for the new A-Class and B-Class. The model will get the same sloping roof line as the CLS and it’s basically considered a smaller version of the four-door coupe.

The Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG will be powered by the same engine found in the all-new A45 AMG, the 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder, which is producing a total output of 354 HP and it has a peak torque of 450 Nm. The unit will probably be mated to the same seven-speed automatic dual clutch transmission, which is similar to the one used on the SLS AMG supercar. In the A45 AMG, the gearbox is sending power to the Haldex all-wheel drive system. Additional details on the Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG will be announced on the 28th of November, during the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, where the model will make its public debut.
