A45 AMG 4MATIC Goes Blazing in the Dunes

Hot Hatch

What happens when you take a 360hp all-wheel drive baby Merc out to play in the Sahara desert?

We love hot hatches: take a 3 or 5 door production compact; stuff in a massive, high displacement engine; add a sports suspension, some fine tuning, and send it out to burn rubber on twisty roads. The Mercedes A45 AMG 4MATIC is a great example: its 2.0-liter, 360 horsepower turbo four, 332 lb-ft of torque and AWD system scream to be powered up on any winding road. Hot by any account, but hey - why not make it hotter and take it out for a spin in the Sahara dunes?

In this video, Mercedes takes the A45 AMG to blaze its 4MATIC system Sahara style.
