For the A 45 S 4MATIC+ (combined fuel consumption: 9.2-8.8 l/100 km; combined CO₂ emissions: 208-200 g/km[1]), Mercedes-AMG is launching an attractive special model: the “Limited Edition”. It can be ordered now. The offer is available until the end of 2024.

The exclusive paintwork in “AMG green hell magno” is particularly striking. This colour was previously not available for the compact class. There is also the foiling with the AMG logo and a large “A 45 S” lettering on the doors and the AMG crest on the bonnet. The “Limited Edition” rolls on matt black 19-inch AMG forged wheels in a seven-twin-spoke design, which are reserved for the Edition. Yellow as a contrasting colour accentuates the rim spokes. To match the colour of the wheels, the brake calipers of the AMG high-performance brake system are coloured glossy black and have white AMG logos. Refined details include the exclusive fuel cap with the AMG logo and the light projector: it shines the AMG coat of arms onto the road when you get in and out of the vehicle.

Three equipment packages further enhance the “Limited Edition”:

  • The AMG Night Package: Striking design elements in black and high-gloss black underline the expressive vehicle character. Included are the front splitter, the exterior mirror housings, and the beltlines. Thermally insulating, dark-tinted window surfaces from the B-pillar complete the package.
  • The AMG Night Package II: Numerous details make the vehicle an eye-catcher. These include the darkened struts on the radiator trim as well as the black chrome typography on the front fenders and tailgate, the Mercedes star and exclusive to the edition the door handles and the Mercedes stars in the wheel hub caps.
  • The AMG Aerodynamics Package: The AMG Aerodynamics Package, developed in the wind tunnel, includes special add-on parts and a fixed AMG rear wing. Together they increase contact pressure and improve driving characteristics at high speeds.

The interior of the “Limited Edition” is also distinctively designed: the AMG performance seats are covered in black with a combination of ARTICO man-made leather and MICROCUT microfibre. Yellow decorative stitching in the seats, door panels and instrument panel create attractive contrasts. This also applies to the embroidered emblems with the “45 S” label in the front headrests.

The AMG performance steering wheel in leather/MICROCUT microfibre with yellow decorative stitching as well as the aluminium trim elements with AMG pattern and yellow AMG lettering add further accents to the interior. The AMG door sills also demonstrate the attention to detail. They wear an AMG pattern design in black and illuminate the AMG logo in yellow. AMG floor mats with “45 S” lettering and decorative stitching in yellow complete the interior upgrades.

With an output of 310 kW (421 hp), the A 45 S 4MATIC+ is powerfully motorised. The compact sports car sprints from a standstill to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds. The top speed is limited to 270 km/h. In addition to the pure performance figures, the AMG 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine impresses with its spontaneous response.

The fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive with AMG TORQUE CONTROL makes a significant contribution to the dynamic driving experience: The rear axle drive contains two electronically controlled multi-plate clutches. They are each connected to a drive shaft on the rear axle. This means not only can the driving force be distributed variably between the front and rear axles, but also selectively between the left and right rear wheels.
