Mercedes-Benz unveiled its A45 AMG ahead Geneva debut.
Based on the A-Class platform, the car will get its power from a turbo-charged four-cylinder that is expected to make around 350 hp. Power will be routed through a dual-clutch seven-speed transmission to an all-wheel drive system. The A45 AMG features lower stance, stiffer suspension, a wider track, larger wheels and tires plus upgraded brakes.

This will be the most powerful four-cylinder engine from Mercedes, and it will also power the upcoming CLA45 AMG.
The A45 AMG will make its debut at the upcoming 2013 Geneva Motor Show, while the CLA45 AMG will take its bow at the 2013 New York Auto Show.
