Behold The Aural Glory Of The Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG

Up until right now, I was merely somewhat miffed that we Americans aren't getting the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG hatchback. But now that I've seen this video, I'm way more than miffed. I'm super sadballs.

It's only a short clip, but it gives us a great sense of the throaty, burbly engine we're missing out on. Remember, that's a hatchback with a 2.0-liter turbo four good for 360 horsepower with all-wheel-drive. I think it sounds pretty hot.


The good news is we'll be getting more or less the same setup in the CLA45 AMG, but I kind of want it in hatch form now. If Usher likes it, it's got to be good, right?
