BANGALORE: Mercedes-Benz has been doing well, launching its AMG spec cars and bringing them to the Indian market in one form or another since January 2013. Now it’s the turn of Mercedes Benz GLA 45 AMG, which has made its way to the market with a price tag of 69.90 Lakh, reports NDTV AUTO.



Although, three AMGs have already been launched and there are AMG Performance Centres too in India, this makes us understand that the German carmaker is taking things very seriously.



As the name suggests, the GLA 45 AMG is a performance version of the GLA-Class crossover and follows the same formula as its sedan and hatchback cousins. Powered by a 2 liter-4 cylinder turbo petrol engine that outputs 360 Bhp-450 Nm of torque, the AMG will sport a 7 speed dual clutch automatic gearbox and a 4MATIC all wheel drive system handles torque transmission.



In terms of cosmetics, the GLA 45 AMG gets a new Avantgarde grille, with an AMG tag, more aggressive bumpers, black roof, side skirts, rear diffuser and quad exhausts. In typical AMG fashion, it also gets some red accents on the grille, rear diffuser and wing mirrors; then there are the red calipers that show through the 19-inch alloys.



On the inside, the GLA 45 AMG gets a new sportier pair of bucket front seats, flat-bottomed steering wheel, red seatbelts and contrast red stitching that goes in line with the dashboard, seats and steering.



Overall, unlike the other AMGs, the GLA 45 AMG can be called as the most affordable compact SUV from the AMG lineup.
