Power for the Mercedes-Benz A25 AMG is expected to come from a 2.0 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine making 350-hp. Mated to a dual-clutch gearbox, 0 to 62 mph should come in 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph.

The Mercedes-Benz A25 AMG will offer all-wheel-drive and will have a wider track on the front and rear to boost road-hugging grip. It will also get an upgraded suspension and stiffer dampers.

Sales are expected to start later next year.

Europe will get diesel options ranging from 109-hp to 170-hp. All engines will be available with the fuel-sipping ECO start/stop function as standard. Transmission choices include a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.
