Does the CLA 45 AMG Offer the Full AMG Experience?

/ Comments

Or is Mercedes trying to pull a fast one?

Providing entry into the world of AMG's high-performance models for under $50k, the CLA45 has generated plenty of discussion. We recently examined how the car behaves as a daily driver, and now the guys at The Hooniverse have pondered whether it provides the real AMG experience or if it's nothing more than a budget pretender. Some may point at its four-banger powerplant and all-wheel drive set up as evidence the CLA45 is simply too tame to wear the AMG badge.

But if you look at its performance and consider the 2.0-liter turbo unit is the most powerful production four-cylinder ever made, you may start to think otherwise.
