Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the second generation GLA 45 AMG. The 45 AMG, the last of the high-performance GLA lineup, will make its debut at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. The GLA 45 AMG will be available in two specs: a baseline 387 horsepower and an S version of 421 horsepower.

The SUV is equipped with a two-litre M139 turbo engine, an eight-speed "robot" AMG Speedshift DCT-8G with two wet clutches and an all-wheel drive AMG Performance 4Matic + with individual rear wheel drive couplings. Such a transmission allows you to implement thrust vector control. The most tolerant electronic mode of the GLA 45 is called Master, and it allows only small drifts.
