The facelifted Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 4MATIC Coupé is among the most powerful vehicles in its segment, with a peak performance of 280 kW and maximum torque of 475 Nm. A new diesel in the CLA range makes 100 kW and 300 Nm torque, but this 200d gives 4,4 l/100 km. CO2 emissions stand at 114 g/km. Prices for the five models in the CLA range start at R445k for the CLA 200 and go up to R833k for the AMG CLA 45 4MATIC.
Next year’s Aston Martin is called the DB11 and it will force air into the 12 pistons with twin turbos to deliver more power (447 kW and 700 Nm). It won’t burble like the DB9, but goes from zero to 100 km/h in 3,8 seconds.
