Confirmed: Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG coming to the New York Auto Show

Mercedes-Benz showed off the CLA45 AMG at a private event on the eve of the Geneva Motor Show, but was determined not to let it be photographed. We can talk about it, though – after all, a teaser image was released to promote the new Sony game Drive Club. The CLA45 AMG will use the same powertrain as the A45 AMG, which means a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 360 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. And that means a small four-door coupe sedan with the highest horsepower-per-liter in the segment. It will shift through the same seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, should also run out of speed at 155 miles per hour and have that three-stage stability control system.

As with its hatch sibling, the CLA is already so aggressive on the outside – and the parent company so anxious not to demolish the sedan’s 0.22 coefficient of drag – that not much has been done to the cranked-up CLA. Even the rather thin tires on the standard only get a little less thin on the hotter variant. Inside will be the telltale AMG signs, with lots of red detailing and that flat-bottomed wheel among the giveaways. We’ll know more later this month when the wraps come off at the New York International Auto Show.

It features collaborative gameplay with friends in teams. Players can interact with the club anywhere, and cars have been “recreated with intense love.” The studio has “gone borderline insane” with real-world details and subtlety.

The news follows a tease from Evolution last week, which included a countdown to today’s event as well as the mention of a “super secret project” on the Twitter pages of employees.
