Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG is FWD and Priced Under $50,000



Mercedes-Benz is on a roll introducing a host of new AMG models this year.  CLA45 AMG in particular is unique in many ways and signals a new direction the company is marching on.

For most auto enthusiasts, it's a known fact that performance cars have to be either RWD or AWD.  You simply cannot make the front wheels do all the work - steer and power the vehicle.  The engineers at AMG division had to convert the base model's FWD to AWD system to handle increased power.

AMG cars historically have been known for unrealistically powerful V8 and V12 engines combined with various superchargers and turbo systems in certain models.

By the way, the '45' in CLA45 no longer indicates the displacement of the engine as this car is equipped with tiny 2.0 liter engine.  However, the company managed to tune it up to produce 355 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque.  The power is delivered through the AWD featuring torque vectoring and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
