Apr 27, 2017 05:00 AM EDT | Paul Urban

Mercedes-AMG A45 is reported to be stunningly powerful for having at least 400-horsepower. This is considered impressive for a vehicle of its kind. Currently, the title is held by 395-horsepower RS3 Sportback but may easily be replaced by the A45 upon official release.

The Mercedes-AMG A45 is expected to have this much power because of its new 2.0-liter engine. It is an electric turbine which the company has a close link to according to Tobias Moers, the Mercedes-AMG boss. He continued on by saying that it will have to be over 402-horsepower which makes it elevated to a whole new level.

It is expected to arrive sometime in 2019 so Mercedes-AMG has a lot more time developing such vehicle. With this said, Mercedes-AMG will be very careful about not giving tips or even the slightest of ideas about the upcoming car. All they can say is it will have to be over 400-horsepower to directly compete with cars of its kind.

It is reported to come with an all-new exterior design which is inspired by Concept A recently revealed in Shanghai not long ago. As per spy shots made available, two large digital displays were spotted which is similar to that of S-Class and E-Class.

The 2017 Mercedes-AMG A45 is highly rated for its Handling, Performance, Usability, and of course its Feel Good Factor. With this, the A45 to be released in two years is expected to have good ratings, even better than the current one.

The 2017 Mercedes-AMG A45 can accelerate from zero to 62 mph in just 4.2-seconds. Its top speed is recorded at 155 mph with EPA of 38.7 mpg. It is also powered by inline4 direct injection turbo which is capable of producing 376-bhp and 350 pound-feet of torque. It is currently sold in the UK for around $43,000.

The upcoming Mercedes-AMG A45 definitely is way better in almost all aspects compared to the one recently sold in the UK. Both A45s are expected to be the best. With the 2017 A45 doing well, the one expected in two years will surely trump all of its competitors.
