Moteur Mercedes-AMG GLA 45
Le 2.0 turbo développé par le motoriste AMG propose 381 ch. La boîte AMG Speedshift DCT 7 à double embrayage a été optimisée et les rapports raccourcis pour offre une meilleure réactivité. Le Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 est couplé à la transmission intégrale 4MATIC qui permet de répartir le couple de façon optimal entre les deux essieux (50/50). Mercedes annonce un 0 à 100 km/h en 4,4 s.
With a maximum output of 280 kW (381 hp) and 475 Nm maximum torque the Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 4MATIC is among the most powerful cars in its segment. A speed of 100 km/h is achieved from standstill after just 4.4 seconds. The extremely agile 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine blends its thrilling performance and the exemplary efficiency with a further best: the power-to-swept-volume ratio of 141 kW (191 hp) marks a record for a series engine with four cylinders – it raises the AMG engine to the level of thoroughbred super sports cars.
One of the high-tech components of the four-cylinder turbo engine is the spray-guided direct petrol injection. Piezo injectors centrally located in the four combustion chambers inject the fuel at a pressure of up to 200 bar. The combination of multiple fuel injection and multi-spark ignition improves fuel economy and significantly increases thermodynamic efficiency, leading to low exhaust emissions. The twin-scroll turbocharger and maximum dethrottling of the exhaust system improve the charge pressure build-up, and therefore the engine’s response to the accelerator.
