2018 Mercedes GLA 45 AMG
The AMG 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, developed independently by Mercedes-AMG and generating a peak output of 280 kW (381 hp) and maximum torque of 475 Nm, is still the world’s most powerful series-produced four-cylinder turbocharged engine. The specific output of 141 kW (191 hp) per liter even exceeds that of most super cars. A twin-scroll turbocharger ensures instantaneous response with rapid buildup of boost pressure and torque: 475 Nm is permanently on tap between 2250 and 5000 rpm. It combines fascinating power output, extreme stability and exemplary efficiency.
The AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission allows extremely dynamic acceleration and ultra-short shift times, as well as a fuel-saving driving style. This is due, among other things, to the simplified operating logic of the RACE-START function, ignition interruption during upshifts, the double-declutching function and, above all, the new gear ratios. With 7 gears, 4 transmission settings specific to the drive mode (five in conjunction with the AMG DYNAMIC PLUS package) and a manual mode, the AMG sports transmission provides the driver with a broad gearshift spectrum from extremely sporty to very comfortable.
