Mercedes-Benz has released official images of its much anticipated A45 AMG. Soon to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, the A45 signals Mercedes’ first foray into the hugely popular hot hatch market.

Pitched to tackle BMW’s hugely successful M135i and Audi’s RS3 Sportback, the A45 will hit Australian roads in September at a price of around $80,000.

It will be powered by a highly-tuned 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder engine capable of 265kW and a 0-100km/h time of just 4.6 seconds.

 

Four-wheel-drive will ensure maximum grip, with the little Benz limited to a top speed of 250km/h.
