Mercedes-AMG, the performance arm of Mercedes-Benz, is having a great couple of years. This year looks to be another, as it prepares to launch several AMG-badged cars. Top of the list is the new Mercedes-AMG A 35 with 225kW and 400Nm. But a higher range is also on the cards, namely an A 45 and A 45 S. So yes, hi-performance in the hatch segment is about to be turned on its head. These “spy” pics are official from Mercedes-AMG and show what the car looks like. What do these things pack anyway?

Well according to loud whispers, the A 45 will carry a 2.0-litre turbo engine that delivers some 285kW of power, which is about the same as the previous model. But wait, there’s more. An A 45 S is on the table, and that one will hit us hard with a 310kW power output from the same engine! Add to that, the company’s 4Matic all-wheel-drive (AWD) system will more than likely ensure tight road grip and stunning acceleration. Expect the A 45 S to achieve a 0 – 100km/h time of under 4 seconds.
