Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG previewed in 2013 Super Bowl Ad

Article by Christian A., on February 5, 2013

In Mercedes-Benz’s ad for the new 2014 CLA, the automaker let it slip that it will soon release a CLA45 AMG. It had already been expected that the company was developing an AMG version of the CLA. The four-door coupe has the same underpinnings as the A-Class so it can be presumed that the uprated, direct-injected 2.0-liter turbo-four from the upcoming A45 AMG will also be used in the CLA.

In the A45, this engine has an output of 350 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. So it’s probable that the CLA45 will have similar or even identical figures. The AMG suite is also offered with a specially-tuned 4Matic all-wheel drive system that could deliver as much as 60% of the power to the rear wheels. This represents a major dynamic advantage for the normally front-wheel-drive A- and CLA-Class.

These powertrain revisions lead to an excellent performance. As a result, the vehicle can accelerate from zero to 62mph in 4.6 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 155 mph. But with an optional performance package, it can reach 175 mph. This package will be dubbed as an S-Model version, similar to the 2014 E63 AMG. The confirmation that the CLA-Class will certainly lead to an AMG variant is courtesy of an annotation on Mercedes’ own YouTube video.

Direct viewers read text at the end of its Super Bowl ad that asks viewers to enter for a chance to win a trip to NYC to see the CLA and the CLA45 AMG. This link is actually the Mercedes-Benz USA Facebook page, where the company is presently promoting a contest for viewers to go to the New York auto show in March to see the CLA.
