The new model will be part of a fully-redesigned "45" lineup.
2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA 45

Mercedes-AMG is revamping its lineup of 45 series cars with the introduction of the 2020 CLA45. The styling of the new CLA45 gets more aggressive with the brand's signature shark nose that now wears an AMG-specific radiator grille, a first for AMG's compact models. Adding to the front end's bold styling is the hood's aerodynamic powerdomes and wider front fenders with flared wheel arches, which can all be further enhanced with an AMG Aerodynamic Package that includes a modified front splitter, additional flics, and an additional diffuser blade.

Power will come from a new turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 382 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 will happen in four seconds flat (estimated) and the top speed is limited to 155 mph, which can be increased to 168 with the optional AMG Driver's Package. This is coupled with an 8-speed AMG Speedshift DCT 8G dual-clutch transmission and an AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system with AMG Torque Control that can selectively distribute drive power between each individual wheel based on your driving conditions. 

The AMG CLA45 will arrive later this year.
