Mercedes Benz cars are simply attached to prestige and automotive performance. Since the car manufacturing company became successful in the 1950s for their gullwing door SLS, it continued its dominance in the high-end market. The Mercedes Benz CLA45 AMG, presented in the 2013 New York Auto Show featured one of the most powerful turbocharged four-cylinder engines. A lot of people would expect a V8 engine to come with the Mercedes Benz CLA45 AMG. However, what the manufacturer did was to establish an efficient four-cylinder engine that can create as much as 355 horsepower. Producing 322 pound-feet torque, it is an example of superb engineering for the German automotive company.
The emergence of BMW 3-Series GT, as well as Audi A5, prompted the Mercedes Benz to release its compact turbocharged car. Aside from a high-end performance engine, Mercedes Benz has been attached with class and elegance.
Though they can easily have it priced for $60,000 for starting something new in the automotive industry, they opted to make the price consumer-friendly.
Priced $47,450, it is a good deal for a Mercedes Benz. Most cars that have been classified in the same category of the Mercedes Benz CLA45 AMG run at a $50,000 price tag. Given the price tag of less than $50,000, it is expected for the Mercedes Benz CLA45 AMG to be a commercial success.
