As the German automaker's smallest crossover, the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLA 45 offers itself as a suitable option for urban trekkers searching for a model capable of scooting them around town, handling commutes to the office, and adventuring off the beaten path. However, don't be fooled into thinking this luxury compact crossover is your run-of-the-mill carpooler and errand-runner. In sporting the "AMG" badge, the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLA 45 draws upon a lineage of track-tuned performance and athletic dynamics through groundbreaking feats of mechanical engineering.

This range-topping luxury crossover is host to a polished interior driven by premium amenities, convenient technology, and plenty of versatile day-to-day features. Most shoppers aren't drawn to the model solely by its glitz and alluring design. Under the hood rests a 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged engine capable of delivering 382 horsepower. How the manufacturer managed to squeeze 191-horsepower for every liter of displacement is beyond us. Motorists will find that maximum output in the powerband rests at around 6,500 rpm while turbo lag is nearly eliminated through the eight-speed dual-clutch automatic system. Its responsivity can't be understated as experts have reported it evokes the same dynamics of a naturally aspirated unit. Capable of dashing from zero-to-60 mph in 4.3 seconds, the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLA 45 announces its arrival with a snarling exhaust tone complemented by a raspy engine.

Motorsports enthusiasts keen on taking their compact crossover SUV to the next level will find that the AMG Dynamic Plus package will grant them the white-knuckle experience behind the wheel they seek. This bundle includes six unique driving modes that tailor the throttle response, shifting makeup, suspension, steering, and torque distribution between axles to ensure your model's performance matches the environment at hand. Further included are adaptive dampers and upgraded front brake rotors with six-piston calibers.

The Mercedes-Benz AMG GLA 45 combines the Bavarian manufacturer's illustrious heritage of impeccable design with pioneering engineering achievements.
