Mercedes-AMG A45 Sedan Rendered

Mercedes-Benz recently revealed the A-Class L version of the sedan in China and one week later, X-Tomi Design made the first AMG A45 sedan rendering based on said model.

Tall order, trying to turn a compact Mercedes sedan into something worthy of the AMG badge. In an effort to create a sporty looking four-door, X-Tomi has added a multitude of design elements from the E63. In a side-by-side comparison, youíll the same black wheels, similar air intakes and front bumper features.

While the production ready sedanís design is still up in the air, we do know that the A45 will be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Capable of producing in excess of 400 horsepower, or so Motor1 says, the engine will be paired with a new 4Matic all-wheel-drive system.

Also to be offered is a less powerful A35 four-door sedan, speculated to deliver around 300 horsepower. Thatís enough for it to go after the likes of the Audi S3 Sportback and Sedan while its more powerful sibling is geared to take on the RS3 Sportback and Sedan.

Both the A35 and A45 will come in both four-door sedan and five-door hatchback configurations. Fans should be on the lookout for a debut date sometime in the second half of this year.

Being part of the AMG brand I wonder if down the road we will see them come out with a super high performance version sort of like the Jaguar Project 8. We can even look at the AMG GT-R for hints of what it could be like, after all it is up in that league for its respective segment.

When it comes to AMG, it very well could be possible. What's more, the A-Class is their first in house model, so they'll probably use the platform to develop more models aside from the standard A-Class.

Really like the look of that rendering, and hopefully MB can deliver on the rumored +400hp. That's quiet a lot of power in a vehicle of this size. Early reviews of the A-Class have indicated that there's quite a lot of tech and features that have come over from the premium S-Class model.

An AMG A45 sedan would really be the perfect vehicle IMO and as an A-Class model I'm expecting it to at least be on par with the current hatchback offering or better. So in excess of 381 hp.

For me the biggest perk will be the fact it could be faster than the CLA 45 AMG which was faster than the Nissan GT-R. Being light weight and potentially packing more power can only lead to that outcome. I hear it could be pushing closer to 400 horsepower.
