How do you get so much energy? Test drive the Mercedes-AMG GLA
Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 4MATIC Yellow Night Edition is the most powerful in the line GLA car: 2.0-litre turbo engine (381 HP and 475 Nm of torque). Dispersal to hundred in 4.4 seconds.
The feeling is ambivalent: on the one hand, a fairly compact hatchback for 4.5 million rubles, with slightly increased ground clearance, on the other – a supercar, which look each and every. Well … all … men, for the most part. And of all ages and different incomes. And it is not only extremely quick responsiveness of the gas pedal or the roar while pressing start the engine (this is just expected from a car with a AMG badge). The case in performance-this kit of the “yellow” series. Needless to say, have to pay for it. 98-m gasoline, and better than 100-m.
Recall that AMG is Mercedes-Benz, the only official tuning company of the German mark. Behind the acronym hides the names of the two engineers Hans Aufrecht, Erhard Melcher and Großaspach.
In 2017, AMG, German “a daughter” Daimler AG celebrates 50-year anniversary. The AMG engines are going in the city of Affalterbach, there’s also session management, sales management, developers and designers. More specifically, we collected only a V8, inline 4-cylinder engines in the city of kölleda, and V12 in Mannheim. Each motor is hand-assembled according to the principle “One man – one engine” and is plate signed by the mechanic. There is in this a certain fraction of personal concern that you immediately feel from the manufacturer. And women love care.
In 2016, the AMG division showed a record sales growth of 40%, selling almost 100,000 cars. How so? In recent years Mercedes has greatly expanded athletic line, they appeared in every class, which gave a total of more than 50 models. And now for all four representatives of the compact class – A 45 4MATIC, CLA 45 4MATIC, CLA 45 4MATIC Shooting Brake and GLA 45 4MATIC – AMG package is there, and that this is not enough, you can order an exclusive version of the Yellow Night Edition.
Frankly, the car is not for everyone. If and women, with character. For strong managers – driving need to be extremely careful to keep the situation under control, not only because of the spectacular acceleration, but in those harsh conditions when the whole world is watching you.
