The new S-Class may be the biggest news that Mercedes-Benz has planned for the upcoming New York Auto Show, but enthusiasts (or really anyone with less than $100k to spend on a German luxury sedan) will be more impressed by the new CLA45 AMG. Mercedes may not be ready to unveil the whole thing just yet, but that hasn’t stopped this set of images from leaking out, giving us the full unadulterated look at the compact four-door performance coupe.

Based on the new A-Class but with the 2.0-liter turbo four from the European-spec A45 AMG hatchback, the new CLA45 will drive 360 horsepower through its seven-speed dual-clutch transmission to all four wheels. We’re told to expect a 4.6-second 0-60 time and a sub-$50k starting price. Along with the engine upgrades, AMG has also apparently applied its usual aerodynamic enhancements, bigger wheels and brakes and a sportier interior with Alcantara and carbon-fiber trim. Watch this space for more as the New York Auto Show opens at the Javitz Center next week.

sweet.

looks like my wishes for the interior came true. although the inner part of the seats is some sort of cloth and not alcantara.

Yes, all the leaks are all calculated and planned. The car companies try to steal each others thunder now even before the auto show begins.

I'm dying to know how much the CLA45 AMG will cost.

I am hoping the price as typically equipped will be below $50k. Starting price of sub-$50k might be $49,950. :sad:

It's not much different looking than the sport package or the Edition 1 with its wheels. From a glance, it's going to be hard to spot one of these on the road. However the black front diffusor gives it away.

Doubt it highly. Why not just wrap the mirrors with one of the products at DecalFX.com? I have used their carbon films in the past on cars and its pretty easy to use and looks great when done, as long as you have a bit of patience putting it on. Way cheaper than covers would be.
