Since last summer (September 26, 2015) the facelift version of the Mercedes AMG A45 4-MATIC W176 (generally for the A-Class) has been available to buy. A small side effect in terms of AMG is the name that is now scolded at Mercedes-AMG A 45 4MATIC (FL), but a much more important side effect is likely to be the fact that the A-Class in the 45 AMG version is now available with an impressive 381PS (previously 360PS ) and 475NM (previously 450NM) and these almost 400PS thanks to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission are able to let the A-Class shoot up to 4,2km / h in a good 100 seconds. For this model (MOPF), the Mercedes tuner Carlsson Fahrzeugtechnik is now offering a revised body kit and additional tuning parts, including for the interior. As for the pre-facelift version, there is a Carlsson front spoiler (available for series optics and for vehicles with AMG Line), a couple of side skirts, a rear apron attachment including a diffuser and a rear spoiler. Optional parts such as a four-pipe rear silencer system (additional power 3 HP) and various wheel-tire combinations up to 20 inches are of course also available. But if you want, you can enjoy the Carlsson changes not only outside but also inside.
The great features of the Mercedes AMG A45
Starting with the interior with illuminated or unlit door sills, floor mats, a new footrest, high-quality pedal pads, door pins and custom-made leather upholstery, everything can be ordered from the tuner from Saarlouis. The team from Carlsson Autotechnik released the modified A45 AMG a few hours ago and we are of course pleased to be able to show you the first pictures. Hopefully we can deliver all important technical changes later. After the extensive tuning cure that the W176 was allowed to endure, it is now visually much sportier, beefier and more dynamic than the production version without exaggerating. So if you have been secretly thinking of buying a current A45 AMG for a long time, or if you are already a happy owner, Carlsson Autotechnik is definitely an interesting starting point when it comes to differentiating the vehicle from the production model.
As far as the further changes to optics or technology are concerned, we have tried to find out the most important details. As always, we have listed what came out of this in a small summary for you in the lower part of the article. If you discover more changes that we have missed, please use our comment box and let us know, we will then add them to the article as soon as possible.
