Sitting at the top of the line up the GLA 45 AMG is the same 355 horsepower 4 cylinder turbocharged engine as you'll find in its sister car, the A45 AMG, featuring 4 wheel drive and an overtly aggressive body kit and rear wing taken straight from a rally car judging by the styling.
"Rally car" is probably a good description for the GLA 45 AMG as Mercedes has imbued real sense of purpose into the car, making the engine snarl, pop and fizz much more than a typical 4 cylinder road car would have any right to do, and this feeling is also transferred into the performance which is increadibly powerful for a car of this size but as Car Magazine described - rather spiky.
So the GLA 45 gives you a rally car style ferocious engine, firm suspension and an extrovert body kit, removing what some would consider Mercedes core values of subtle luxury and relaxed pace, and at the same time charging a price of £45k for a 4 cylinder hatchback however powerful mean this car wont suit many people, but for the few that enjoy it, it can be real fun.
