Report: AMG B-Class Is Just a Test Mule for A25 AMG
Apparently, there won’t be a hot ‘B-Class, because “it is not suitable for traditional AMG customers." The car we saw is meant as a test platform for the A25 AMG, which has a much sportier body. The same 2.0-liter twin-scroll direct-injected unit will also be dropped into the baby four-door coupe, the upcoming CLC25 AMG, which also uses the same platform.
The 320 or so horsepower will be sent to all four wheels via a Haldex-style four-wheel drive system and a dual-clutch transmission. But who knows, this might actually be the B25 AMG we are looking for, and they’re pulling a fast one on us.
