Review Summary:

The CLA is a relatively new entrant in the market and a rather exciting one as it comes in just one flavour, petrolheads’ favourite, ferocious AMG.

Pros

* It's got the power to match its seductive styling.

Cons

* On the pricier side.

Looks

Based on the magnificent A-Class, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG is an absolute stunner. Taut lines and tapered creases compliment the numerous contours along the bodywork, and while its sensuous curves are likely to have you pull your camera out take pictures of it like it were a celebrity, it’s worth remembering that the CLA 45 AMG is more than just a looker.

Feels

Being an out-and-out speed machine, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG welcomes a thick flat-bottomed Alcantara wrapped steering wheel, leather wrapped sports seats, carbon fibre along the dashboard, and studded aluminium pedals. There’s no guessing involved, the CLA 45 AMG makes its intentions clear from the beginning.

Engineering

An independent front and rear axle, stiff steering knuckles, and rigid bearings, come together to offer excellent handling dynamics and make the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG and absolute charm to drive on the bends.

What’s on offer?

Churning out an insane 180 horsepower for every litre of displacement, the CLA 45 AMG pushes out 360 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque from its measly 2.0 litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Packing a top whack of 250 km/h, the CLA 45 AMG gets mated to a 7 speed dual clutch automatic transmission and is able to accelerate to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds.

Summing it…

There’s something about the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG that just tugs at your heartstrings. It may not be the most powerful amongst its rivals and it certainly isn’t the most affordable. But if you can afford one, then go and check it out, because one test drive is all it will take to win you over.
