Mercedes CLA 45AMG is Going to be 4 Cylinder Turbo? That’s it?
Maybe you guys saw this coming because the A class 45 AMG, which was debuted in Geneva earlier this month had that same motor. I just feel like the CLA should have a bigger motor, or the very least a V6. Cadillac will definitely have a V6 turbo under the hood of it’s ATS-V, it is not confirmed which exact motor, but a V6 Turbo is in the works. Plain and simple these two vehicles will be going head to head trying to grab thier share of the customer market. With that said I feel Mercedes may fall short with the CLA because it’s very possible Cadillac will come out having more power and torque. If magnetic ride is put in the Cadillac, it will out handle, ride smother and be faster than the Merc. The official numbers are 360 Hp and 332 lb-ft or torque for the CLA, Cadillac’s latest leak was the 420Hp V6 turbo going into the CTS. I guess we will have to wait and see who comes out on top.
