I have just found my favorite hot hatch. Sorry VW, the Golf R isn't enough anymore...
Ray Liu Nov 03, 2012
Next generation Mazda 3 looks better than this? Yeah I know Mazda cannot be compared with amg
Sam Biggin Nov 03, 2012
I want an a class
Alex Mabbott Nov 03, 2012
Yeah, get rid of black and it looks actually pretty good to me, I do like that color.
Joseph Flieder Nov 02, 2012
And yes I know it's not a kit
Joseph Flieder Nov 02, 2012
That black body kit is hideous
Jordan Smith Nov 02, 2012
It does look a bit Italian. I like it though.
Christian De Prisco Nov 02, 2012
Fiat bravo perhaps or a bit Of Fiat punto evo
Matt Piccolo Nov 02, 2012
I don't see any Italian here... And IMO this is pretty ugly, just doesn't look right :/
Alex Medvedev Nov 02, 2012
Love the front
Jason Brown Nov 02, 2012
Looks like a VW golf...
Thomas William Tuer-sipos Nov 02, 2012
Or the giuletta or however it's spelled hah
Thomas William Tuer-sipos Nov 02, 2012
Reminds me of an Alfa mito
Patrick Schalk Nov 02, 2012
The back half does
Tobias Mersinger Nov 02, 2012
How does this look italian?!
Patrick Schalk Nov 02, 2012
Looks Italian
Ben Bourdon Nov 02, 2012
They love that color a bit too much at AMG
Description: The eagle-eye amongst you will note the A45 AMG's aero kit is identical to the AMG Sport styling package offered on the all-new third-gen A-Class. Features unique to the high-performance model in...

@John, yes I know he was. Although AMG is a factory production, it is still tuned. I nearly commented about a 1.6 four that was more impressive after a tune.
JB Kolod Nov 02, 2012
Oh I forgot about that Evo, good call.
Miguel Jimenez Nov 02, 2012
Dany you're correct sir.
Dany Chan Nov 02, 2012
Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't the Evo fq400 a 2 liter with 400bhp
John Serely Nov 02, 2012
@jason he was talking about production cars
Lou Guerrero Nov 02, 2012
Agreed. At least the powers there
Edgar Jauregui Nov 02, 2012
the power output is amazing! I'm still cheering for the M135i
Jason Brown Nov 02, 2012
JB, check out the Hyundai velocity for SEMA. 1.6 turbo 4 tuned with 400 horses. That's pretty impressive!
Matt Sutton Nov 02, 2012
Very impressive numbers. Well done.
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Nov 02, 2012
This is a pocket rocket
JB Kolod Nov 02, 2012
350 hp from a 2 liter four is amazing for a factory production car, that's got to be a power/displacement record. I wonder if there will be turbo lag.
Description: That's a significant improvement over the A250's figures of 208 hp and 221 lb-ft, and eclipses both the 315-hp BMW M135i and 335-hp Audi RS3. Power is sent to all four wheels via a seven spe...

0-60 in 5.1secs? I don't believe that for a second... My M135i gets to 62mph in 4.9secs, nevermind 60mph, and it has considerably less power. I'd safely say it'll be a sub 5. Look forward seeing the tests :)
Matt Close Nov 03, 2012
Mercedes hasn't made a truly sporty car in awhile and this is the first hot hatch from them as we'll so it will be interesting to see how it holds up!
Andrew Morales Nov 02, 2012
It probably will be sub 5 when the final model is relased
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Nov 02, 2012
Yeah Im expectin this to be a contender in much loftier segments.
Dylan Bruder Nov 02, 2012
Only 350? Most people haven't even driven a car with 350 hp these are great numbers for this car
Ben Bourdon Nov 02, 2012
It's only got 350hp, which is great but since it's a Mercedes it's probably a little on the heavy side, even if it is an AMG hatchback. I didn't see where it listed the weight
Tracy Keiser Dron Nov 02, 2012
5.1?? Should be under 5 secs.... It's light and got enough horsepower...
Joseph Flieder Nov 02, 2012
Yes Kyle defiantly parallelogram, geometry fail.
Dillon Magee Nov 02, 2012
I like it.
Kyle Kloewer Nov 02, 2012
Trapezoidal exhaust? If you ask me they look like parallelograms
Dylan Gomes Nov 02, 2012
the rear just doesn't look like a Mercedes :/
Matt Piccolo Nov 02, 2012
Uhh, no just no
Alex Medvedev Nov 02, 2012
Taillights could of been designed better but looks goos
Jeyhoon Jahanroshan Nov 02, 2012
taillights close to BMW style
Faidhi Suhaimi Nov 02, 2012
i would love to get one someday :)
Stephen Tyler Learn Nov 02, 2012
What's wrong is that they are identical to the ones on the 1 series hatchback
Kyle Rawn Nov 02, 2012
What's wrong with the tail lights?
Ryan Spencer Nov 02, 2012
Those taillights have got to go.
Billy Hartman Nov 02, 2012
Impreza-ish?
Description: A reworked chassis of the five-door hatch features a modified version of the A-Class' suspension, lowered by around 25mm and sporting a host of new components, as well as wide tracks, electromagn...

45000 I could buy a BMW 1M or a golf r32 for that
Ryan Spencer Nov 02, 2012
€45,000 lol... Never would I ever...
John Serely Nov 02, 2012
I can't wait for the CLA
Jordan Smith Nov 02, 2012
Why would they reveal it, yet keep on the camo for the pictures?
Lou Guerrero Nov 02, 2012
Those lines don't look right but I still like if
Alex Medvedev Nov 02, 2012
Not bad
Cody Fullerton Nov 02, 2012
Maybe something to do with fugly
Dennis Choong Nov 02, 2012
Looks like the engine is hanging out up front
Carlton Salmon Nov 02, 2012
@ Brandon. What do you mean by 'fuggels?'
Brandon Bairian Nov 02, 2012
This thing is fuggels
