See what’s new in the new Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 S 4MATIC+ Coupe
Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has just introduced the new Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 S 4MATIC+ Coupe. With numerous innovations and upgraded equipment, the German automaker is strengthening the position of the Mercedes-AMG CLA Coupe as a trendsetter in the compact performance segment.
The new Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 S is the pinnacle of performance in the compact four-door coupe segment. With an output of 421hp, the Coupe accelerates to 100km/h from standstill in just 4.1 seconds and the top speed of the car is limited to 270km/h.
Moreover, the AMG 2.0-litre turbo engine also impresses with its quick response. The fully variable all-wheel drive with AMG TORQUE CONTROL also makes a significant contribution to the dynamic driving experience and will go a long way on track days as well.
The new AMG CLA 45 S has an AMG-specific radiator grille with vertical slats, a reshaped front apron and a round badge with the AMG emblem that reinforces the brand affiliation. The revised design of the inside of the headlights with multi-beam LED technology and the LED taillights also characterises the AMG CLA 45 S.
The new paint colours, namely hyper blue and spectral blue, extend the choice for individualisation while MANUFAKTUR mountain grey MAGNO and MANUFAKTUR patagonia red metallic paint are also available as options but will incur an additional cost.
New to the AMG CLA 45 S is the Driving Assistance Package consisting of Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC, Active Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, and Active Brake Assist as well as Active Parking Assist allowing drivers to reach their destinations feeling more relaxed and safer too.
On top of that, the interior features two 10.25-inch displays offering a holistic high-tech experience and creating an exceptionally open spatial architecture. The AMG CLA 45 S also offers the new AMG Performance steering wheel with double-spoke design in nappa leather/MICROCUT microfiber and seamlessly integrated buttons.
The new AMG CLA 45 S features the latest generation of MBUX, with newly designed display styles. “Classic” provides all relevant driver information, “Sporty” impresses with the dynamic rev counter and “Discreet” is limited to the most essential items to help the driver focus more on the road.
Together with the three modes (Navigation, Assistance, Service) and seven colour worlds, the instrument cluster and central display can be individualised according to the driver’s wishes and the situation.
The latest iteration of MBUX on the coupe includes the recognisable “Hey Mercedes” voice assistant. The MBUX Interior Assistant equipped in the AMG CLA 45 S detects, interprets, and differentiates both the driver and front passenger’s hand and arm movements through the advanced 3D camera system too.
