The 2013 Geneva Motor Show is slated for March 7th-17th and Mercedes-Benz appears to be ready! The brand will be launching their new Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG, and is it ever a stunner! This debut comes a year after the new Mercedes A-class emerged, and we have great expectations for the A45 AMG! Could it join our fleet of Mercedes-Benz rentals one day? That remains to be decided.
The price is yet to be revealed, but expect it to be competitive with both Audi and BMW.
The new AMG will compete head-to-head with the BMW M135i and Audi RS3 Sportsback. It seems Europe is enduring a serious hot-hatch explosion…which is a bit interesting. Think back to the Ferrari FF invasion in Maranello. Since that time, many more luxury hatchbacks are popping out on their family-friendly wheels.
