Mercedes-AMG CLA and GLA 45 Launch web
Mercedes-AMG have launched the new updated versions of the CLA and GLA 45 in India. Prices starting at Rs. 75.20 lakh.

The new CLA and GLA 45 have undergone a minor design update. The new models have a re-designed front bumper along with a new front-splitter, the car also gets new LED performance headlights giving the car a more sporty appeal. The car also gets a new boot-mounted spoiler to improve aerodynamics. Other additions include an updated interior with new seat inserts and an 8.0-inch infotainment system with navigation, CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity options, along with a 360-degree camera. Mercedes-AMG have also launched the Aero edition models under their design customisation program which allows customers to spec their car to their own liking for an additional fee.

The updated Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 and GLA 45 are powered by the same BiTurbo 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine which now develops 381 PS and 475 Nm, 21 PS and 25 Nm more than the last model, retaining its crown as the most powerful four-cylinder production engine. The increase in power comes courtesy of a new engine control system and the addition of a new exhaust camshaft. Power is sent through the seven-speed AMG Speedshift dual-clutch automatic transmission to the 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system, which means the new 45s can accelerate to 100 km/h in a claimed 4.2-seconds (4.4-seconds for the GLA) and onwards to a limited top speed of 250 km/h.
