2019 Mercedes-AMG A45 could use round exhaust tips instead of squared ones
Once again our spies have spotted the upcoming Mercedes-AMG A45 undergoing more tests. As expected, most of the body is still covered in camouflage to hide its final design. Setting the range topping variant apart from the standard A-Class models would be the larger brakes, wider wheels and the signature AMG Panamericana grill hidden behind a mesh cover.
Going into details of the new photos, it appears that not much has changed on the A45 since our spies last saw it undergoing road tests. The front fascia is still heavily covered with the lower half of the bumper expected to sport large air intake vents, giving it a more aggressive look. As mentioned earlier, expect the Panamericana grill to be found as well.
The side profile shows its wider fenders, larger wheels and lower suspension setup compared to the standard A-Class prototypes seen by our spies. Meanwhile at the back, the rear bumper appears to be complete as it now sports a rear diffuser. Surprisingly the large quad-exhaust setup now feature round tips instead of the usual square units fitted on AMG-models. A large rear wing could also be fitted on the production model.
Power output of the 2019 Mercedes-AMG A45 is expected to be around 400+ PS and will likely come with 4Matic all-wheel drive in production form. Our spies also mention that the next-generation A45 could debut sometime next year and hit dealerships in late 2018.
