[VIDEO] Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG – POV drive on the track
A brand new video with the Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG is showing the model in question on the track, from an on-board camera, fitted onto the driver’s helmet.
The Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG is one hot ride to own, along with its two brothers, the A45 AMG and the CLA45 AMG, but if you ever wanted to see how the model looks in action, on the track, in a POV video, than you have come to the right place, because all you have to do is scroll down and click play. The GLA45 AMG is riding on the Mercedes-Benz MFA (Modular Front Architecture) platform and the name “45” comes from the similar output offered by a 4.5 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine.
Power is being provided by a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which is producing a total output of 360 HP (265 kW and 450 Nm (331 lb-ft) of torque. The same engine, in the same configuration, is also used on the A45 AMG and CLA45 AMG. The unit is connected to a 7-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT transmission, which is sending power to the AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive system. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is made in 4.8 seconds and top speed stands at 250 km/h (155 mph).
