A45 AMG to Cost Under €50,000!

Mercedes will fully reveal the A45 AMG at next year’s Geneva Motor Show, which is in March. But after learning the hot new model has 350 hp, we have another sexy bit of information for you today.

Not only with the A45 overpower its rivals, but it will also undercut them in the price war. Tobias Moers, head of product development at AMG told Auto Express that their price target for the A45 AMG is under €50,000, as Mercedes wants it to be slightly cheaper than the Audi RS3.

However, as with any Mercedes, you should have plenty of options to spec in order to get the desired car, such as paint, carbon fiber inserts, bigger wheels and improved entertainment systems.

Back in June, we estimated that the A45 would cost somewhere between €40,000 and €45,000, based on the fact that the most expensive A-Class right now is the A 250 Sport Limousine, costing €36,860 in Germany including tax.

Allow us to quote ourselves on a relevant pair of paragraphs:

“That sounds very reasonable for a car with a bespoke engine built by a single technician, 350 horsepower and room for the family. But most of the things on it that you really want will be optional - trick Bang & Olufsen stereo, Designo leather, parking sensors, bigger wheels and magnetic ride control.”

“You’re going to look at this small, good looking Mercedes in the press photos and notice massive rims, red brake calipers, slim mirrors, crazy paint finishes etc., and say it’s a prince of the hatches. But all it actually represents is the poor man’s Rolex watch - half as expensive but less attractive than an imitation.”
