Does it represent good value for the price? What features does it come with?
The A45 is the kind of car that gives lesser hot hatches a blood nose, but it's fair to argue that it probably should, too, given its premium price tag.
Sitting in dealerships with a $75,492 sticker price, the A45 is a lot of money, but it's undeniably a lot of car, too. Engine and suspension aside, the AMG-stamped A-Class throws plenty of bonus kit into the deal that you’d otherwise be ticking an option box for.
Outside, expect 19-inch alloys and a ton of AMG styling stuff that cloaks the little A-Class in performance potential. Inside, your nav-equipped, 8.0-inch multimedia screen pairs with a 12-speaker stereo, and the sports seats are trimmed with leather, and heated in the front.
There's dual-zone climate control, powered windows front and rear and a very cool launch control system, too.
