2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG Engine

First things first; horsepower. The CLA is by no means known for its performance, especially when compared to other Mercedes-Benz models such as the E-Class or the SL-Class. That being said, it is still a sports car and the CLA45 has more than enough power to get you to your destination before everyone else. The 2015 redlines at 355 horsepower and, for now, is still the worlds most powerful four-cylinder production engine. For 2016, Mercedes-Benz was able to squeeze 20 more ponies out of the same turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. A four-cylinder engine pushing 400 horsepower? What a concept.
