Mercedes-Benz has launched the latest AMG A45 S in India. While it may look like a small 4-door hatchback, it costs Rs 92.50 lakh (ex-showroom). That's because it's more than just an ordinary A-Class.

The Mercedes-AMG A45 S is powered by a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine that generates 415 BHP and 500 Nm. The engine is mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic and Mercedes' 4Matic+ all-wheel drive system. As a result, the A45 is said to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds.

The 2023 A45 S is based on the updated version of the A-Class. It comes with redesigned front fascia featuring new headlamps and grille, reprofiled taillights, AMG-specific wheels and a roof spoiler.

Inside, the car comes with dual 10.25-inch screens; one for the digital instrument cluster and the other for the touchscreen infotainment system, which now runs on the latest MBUX system. It also gets a new 3-spoke steering wheel with touch controls, updated Mercedes Me voice assistant, and keyless go among others.
