Report: Next-gen Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG to have more than 400hp

When the current Mercedes-Benz A-Class AMG line came out in the form of the A45, it stunned people with how much power Mercedes-AMG was able to coax out of its 2.0L turbocharged four-banger.

That mill is good for a whopping 355hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, which is more than what a lot of V6s put out. But now, AutoExpress reports that the next-generation model could have even more than that–400hp to be exact.

The outlet sat down with AMG’s Tobias Moers, who said that the next-gen A45 will get at least 400hp to compete with rivals like the new Volkswagen Golf R 400.

Moers didn’t say when the new beast will come out, but he did say Mercedes plans to break the eight-minute mark for the A45 AMG’s lap record at the Nurburgring.
