The Mercedes CLA 45 AMG and GLA 45 AMG are set for a 21bhp power hike by the end of 2015, with both boasting an impressive 376bhp from a turbocharged 2-litre four cylinder engine. The power increase will put both cars inline with the A45 AMG's performance figures.
The increase in power is matched with a revised 7 speed DCT gearbox that now features shorter ratios and even quicker shift response times.

Torque from the 2-litre turbo is also up, with the engine managing an impressive 350 lb ft. 0-60mph times have subsequently dropped, with both the A45 AMG and CLA 45 AMG delivering a 4.2 second sprint. The GLA 45 AMG is a touch slower at 4.4 seconds. All three cars are limited to 155mph.
Interior revisions to the range include revised upholstery, added tech and a longer equipment list. Pricing is still TBC, but you can expect more details at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
A current-gen CLA45 AMG costs £42,270, so you can expect pricing to be along similar lines. Audi's RS3, a key competitor to the A45, costs £39,995.
