When Mercedes Benz released the new A45 AMG into the market, they claimed to be targeting those in their 30s and 40s. However, since its debut at the Geneva Auto Show in 2013, it has attracted the attention of those in all age groups. This powerful, four-door sports coupe may be considered a standard four-door coupe, but sure looks and feels like a sports car. The designer of the A45 AMG went all out to create a nice family car that provides the feel of a sports car.
Mercedes Benz has marketed the 2014 A45 AMG as “the world’s most powerful four-cylinder engine in series production.” They may have really earned this title with its 2.0-liter turbo engine with a seven-speed transmission that provides a powerful 355 horsepower with a 336 lb/ft of torque. You may be asking, but how does it perform? This little coupe can go from zero to 60 in just 4.4 seconds with a top out speed of 155 miles per hour, which is not bad for a family-sized model.
Not only does the new A45 AMG perform like a sports car, it looks like one too. The majority of the body is made from aluminum and carbon fiber to provide a lighter model that handles better on the road. The body of the car was lower just about seven-inch, so when you add on the big, multi-spoke wheels, it gives the car a great look. Combine this with the cross wing grill that proudly displays the Mercedes Benz emblem, the LED headlights and taillights, and the sports exhaust, this is one beautiful looking coupe.
The luxury look of the car is definitely followed through into the interior. With fine leather seat and carbon fiber on the dashboard and trim, this car screams luxury. There are also plenty of additional features to enhance the comfort of the car, such as heated front seats that come complete with memory adjustment settings, dual-climate control, and a deluxe cruise control system.
For ease of driving, the interior also includes a multifunctional steering wheel that allows you to control many of the car’s interior functions at the push of a button. It also has a 7-inch multimedia display that is Bluetooth and Wi-Fi compatible and comes with a 12-speaker surround sound system for your enjoyment.
This car has the perfect combination of size and sports car feel. It can easily accommodate five passengers and still take you from zero to 60 miles per hour in under four and a half seconds. No bad at all for a family car. The 2014 Mercedes Benz A45 AMG has also received a five-star safety rating. This rating is due in part to its numerous safety features, including 10 airbags, 3-stage stability control, traction control, blind spot alerts, attention assist, parking assist, lane-keeping alert, daytime running lights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, review camera, and tire pressure monitor.
If you are on the market for a new car that is large enough to accommodate the entire family, yet still match your desire for a sports car, the new 2014 Mercedes Benz A45 AMG is the right option for you. Not only does it look great, but it performs great and has the safety rating to give you peace of mind knowing your family is safe.
