Mercedes-AMG Teases New Model, What Do You Think It Is?

The Mercedes-AMG lineup has never been so vast. Nowadays, it includes sporty derivatives of almost all of the three-pointed star brand’s vehicles, and even more are on their way.

In fact, today, Mercedes-Benz‘s performance sub-brand released a short teaser video on social media that previews a new model. It has the signature Panamericana grille with 15 vertical slats, which incorporates the Mercedes logo in the middle and the AMG badge close to it.

Nothing that we haven’t seen so far, but what is it? It’s too early to say, but it could be CLA 45 or the A45, with the balance tilting in favor of the latter, since the company recently let journalists ride shotgun in their prototypes. The timing is definitely right, with the new A45 expected to debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, next week.

It’s powered by a 2.0-liter four-banger, which puts out 383 horsepower. Those who want more will be able to order, for the first time ever, the A45 S, a more performance oriented model that uses a more powerful version of the same engine, rated at 416 horsepower. This is the same mill that powers the lesser A35, albeit with a new twin-scroll turbocharger and other internals.

With more power than some older supercars, an all-wheel drive system co-developed by AMG and Magna Powertrain and a Drift mode, the new A45 will be one of the most exciting mega hatches in the market, ableit with a price tag to match.

    GLE 63 AMG obviously

    • Elmediterraneo

      No because we didn’t saw the GLE 53 yet.
      I think that’s the GT 73 4 door Coupe with a 800 hp Hybrid V8. The shape of the headlights and its gap with the grill are exactly the same as the GT 4 door.

      • Sebastian Jastrzębski

        No, it’s not GT 4 door for sure. Look once more at the grille and compare. Totally different shape… This shape looks typical for MB’s suvs. I agree with damnson that’s GLE, but it’s probably not 63 or 63s cause it hasn’t this typical for 63AMG hood shape. It’s just straight.

        • damnson

          But i don’t think that Panamericana grill can appear at 43 or 53 model

    • Merc1

      Nope. GLE53.

    I hope it’s not an EQ-GT thing, I’m not ready for that kind of $hiTT right now lol

  • bxniels0

    Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+

  • MultiKdizzle

    Elitist, unpopular opinion incoming.

    The AMG line ought to be pared back to coupes and sedans only. C, E, S, CLA, CLS, SL, GT, and that’s it.
    I say this for with no good reason at all other than a vain, esoteric quest for ideological purity.
