Review of the 2019 Mercedes AMG CLA45

What can you say about the Mercedes-Benz that hasn’t been said before? The entire brand is the epitome of luxury. If you’ve ever owned one, you know exactly what I’m talking about. The more I hear about a Mercedes-Benz, I’d love to have one in my garage. But, the 2019 AMG CLA 45 is a whole different breed of vehicle.

Luxury has always been the staple of Mercedes-Benz. Every vehicle they produce offers something for every lover of anything remotely associated with car or SUV luxury. It isn’t just about the luxury vehicle’s looks, the whole driving experience must spoil a prospective Mercedes-Benz customer. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand Mercedes-Benz is built on luxury; just look at the price tag. There are some vehicles out there in the Auto-verse that deserve high praise and a high price tag. One of those such vehicles is, coincidentally, made by Mercedes-Benz. This car is, quite simply, a beast.

2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 45 Review

The Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is a compact, coupe-designed sedan that is ranked just below the much larger E-Class, A-Class, and CLS-Class. As is the case with all CLA-Class vehicles, front-wheel drive is standard while all-wheel drive is optional. The AMG CLA 45 offers a high-performance alternative for the CLA-Class that one mustn’t take lightly. If it’s speed and power a customer wants, the AMG CLA 45 is highly recommended. 

The Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 45 is loaded with performance features including an AMG-tuned all-wheel-drive suspension, AMG-tuned suspension, high-performance brakes, AMG Sport exhaust system, retuned power steering, Sport+ and Individual drive modes, and 19-inch alloy wheels. Engineers ensured this vehicle would offer a high-performance experience for the driver, and it delivered. 

Under the hood, you’ll find a 2.0-liter turbo-four paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The engine produces a beefy 375 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. Needless to say, you’ll get wherever you need to go in a hurry and with plenty of acceleration to boot. 

As far as options are concerned, to say potential customers are spoiled would be an understatement. Each car includes keyless entry, hands-free trunk assistance, heated front seats, MB-Tex leatherette/Dinamica suede upholstery, and a Harman Kardon audio system. Additionally, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration, navigation, multi-color ambient lighting, red seatbelts, automatic self-parking, and a panoramic sunroof. An additional upgrade is available which includes Race mode, an electronically controlled sport suspension, limited-slip differential, and AMG performance seats.
