The Mercedes-Benz A-Class was recently launched here in Mzansi. Recently the hot Mercedes-AMG A 35 performance version was unveiled. Now we have some details regarding the hottest of them all, namely the A 45. That car is expected to hit the market in 2019 and become the most potent series-production hot hatch of all time.

According to the latest information at our fingertips, the A 45 will keep its current 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged engine format, but extensively rework it. The motor will produce about 300kW, making it the most powerful hatch on the planet. It will forward all the power and torque to all four wheels using the company’s patented 4Matic all-wheel-drive system, as well as a new 8-speed automatic gearbox. Some of our complaints about the A 45 involved a super stiff suspension system that was quite uncomfortable in daily driving. Mercedes-AMG promises that this is a thing of the past.
