AMG GLA 45 SUV
Pack a punch.
AMG GLA 45 SUV
It's more powerful than any other 4-cylinder SUV, not to mention some with more cylinders. And with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive and a chassis full of motorsports-derived AMG hardware, it'll rally your spirits and make your heart race.
A race that knows no finish line.
In an old mill in 1967, two automotive engineers with a passion for motorsports began turning Mercedes-Benz sedans into winning racecars. Today, as the performance division of Mercedes-Benz, AMG continues to create victory on the track and desire on the streets of the world. Every Mercedes-AMG vehicle is the product of craftsmen, designers and engineers who live to test limits, and for a singular goal: Driving Performance.
An interior engineered to inspire
Deeply bolstered seats and a performance flat-bottom steering wheel make sharp curves and long trips equally joyous. The E-SELECT console shifter is a functional scuplture of aluminum and leather. Even racier options include AMG Performance seats and a steering wheel wrapped in grippy DINAMICA microsuede.
A body sculpted to show some muscle
While the body structure of the GLA 45 is engineered to resist flex, its styling can't resist flexing its muscles. Large air intakes and air-guiding "flics" define the front air dam. The standard rear spoiler and 20-inch AMG® wheels are fun and functional. Go for any of three 20-inch and one 19-inch wheel options. 
Appointments that never disappoint
From the upholstery that's hand-fitted to each seat to the precise click of the aircraft-inspired dash vents, the GLA 45 cockpit rewards your eyes and your touch. Even the options set a high standard for style, from the available "Red Cut" leather to seven distinctive choices in dashboard trim.
Engineered with character, styled with personality
Among the many ways to make a GLA 45 your own are its numerous styling packages, from blackout trim to functional aero gear. The Night Package cloaks key body elements in deep gloss black. The AMG Aerodynamics Package adds both subtle and bold refinements, from air-dam flics to a sizable rear wing.
Born to perform, developed to outperform
A Mercedes-AMG engine only starts with the state of the art. From there, everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. Developed for AMG's racecars, patented NANOSLIDE® cylinder walls cut friction, raising endurance and power.
Class-leading horsepower, crafted by hand
Its 375 hp is the most of any 4-cylinder in production. Its turbo boost maxes at an incredible 26.1 psi. And yet some of its numbers are impressively tiny, like its 2.0L size. Its 4.3-second 0-60 time. And the number of hands that build each one: a single pair. ** 
Supernatural torque, with natural talent
AMG Performance 4MATIC teams with 3-stage ESP® and torque-vectoring ESP Dynamic Cornering Assist to turn 350 lb-ft of torque into 365 days of intelligently, instantly proportioned traction, whether powering out of a corner or clinging to the pavement at launch. 
Seven speeds, shifted faster than humanly possible
The AMG SPEEDSHIFT® DCT 7-speed's racing-derived dual-clutch design can shift with lightning speed, to keep the power on when you need it most. The driver-selectable modes of AMG DYNAMIC SELECT alter the shift points, throttle mapping, chassis feel and more. A RACE START function is standard, too.
Agility and grip, from the wheel in your hands to the tires on the road
AMG-developed hardware and AMG-calibrated geometry, rates and ratios add up to agility, precision and crisp communication between the GLA and you, the driver. Supersized 20-inch or optional 19-inch AMG wheels make the most of the nimble AMG Sport Suspension. 
AMG DYNAMIC PLUS: Multiple upgrades, exponential benefits
A package of performance options takes the GLA 45's handling and top speed to the next level: The AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension features 2-stage damping. An AMG limited-slip front differential sharpens its claws in corners. And AMG DYNAMIC SELECT adds a RACE mode.
