Highlights

  • The Mercedes-AMG A 45 has already made its global debut
  • India is expected to get the top-spec AMG A 45 S 4Matic+
  • Before the AMG A 45, Mercedes will launch the A-Class Limousine & the GLA

The new-gen Mercedes-Benz A-Class has been on sale in the global markets for a while now, and India is all set to get it this year. Having said that, like a few other markets, we will only get the A-Class Limousine and not the regular hatchback model like before. However, the carmaker has now confirmed that it will bring in the performance hatchback - Mercedes-AMG A 45 - to India. While the company currently does not have a clear timeline for the car, mainly due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have been told that it is certainly on the cards.

Speaking to carandbike about the AMG A 45 during an online video interaction, Santosh Iyer, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Mercedes-Benz India said, "For AMGs we are committed. AMGs have a good demand and I think that's again what I mentioned sometime back. The AMGs fly off the shelf. But we will bring it (AMG A 45) at the right time for sure, but not sure if it will be by the end of this year."
