Introduced as a new model last year, the 2021 Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 continues mostly unchanged into 2021. It blends the CLA’s striking looks with a 382-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-pot that enables a 0-60 mph run of only four seconds. The CLA 45 enjoys a quick-shifting eight-speed dual-clutch automatic and the brand’s 4Matic all-wheel-drive system.
Complementing the mighty mechanical package is an aggressive design, inside and out. The outside is characterized by the AMG Panamericana grille, 19-inch wheels, and quad-exit exhaust outlets. Inside, the driver is greeted by two 10.25-inch digital displays and sport seats upholstered in MB-Tex. Standard creature comforts include power-adjustable front seats with heating, dual-zone climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and much more. There are eight airbags and a blind-spot assist system that form part of the safety offering.
