Mercedes-Benz has finally pulled the wraps from its hot-stuff CLA 45 AMG performance sedan, debuting at this week's New York Auto Show.

The flagship model in the CLA range, the small new AMG powerhouse enters as the sedan twin to the recently revealed A 45 hot hatch.

As with the hatch, the CLA 45 AMG adds unique front and rear styling, larger wheels and a meaner stance to set it apart from the CLA 250 Sport.

Power in the CLA 45 AMG is provided by the same 2.0 litre turbocharged engine driving the A 45, offering a huge 265kW and 450Nm of torque.

With a seven-speed dual-clutch auto on-board, Mercedes promises an A 45-matching 4.6 second run to 100km/h.

Top speed is electronically limited to 250km/h, and fuel consumption is listed at 6.9 l/100km, again mirroring the A 45.

In all, there are few surprises with the CLA 45; it is very literally a style-focused four-door coupe twin to the more practical A 45 hatch.

As with the hatch, the CLA 45 AMG's engine is hand-built to the same "one man, one engine" philosophy applied to AMG's bigger engines.



Australian details for the CLA 45 AMG are still to be confirmed, but like the AU$74,900 A45, expect features to include 19-inch wheels, the AMG Driver's Package and a full range of usually optional interior features.

Watch for the CLA 45 AMG to hit Australia either late this year alongside the A 45 AMG (due in September), or early in 2014.
