There’s further, though still yet unofficial, confirmation that the upcoming



A 45 will top out north of 400 horsepower. German

auto insurer HUK24

prematurely listed both an


A45 and a range-topping A45 S, with the latter posting an eye-popping 421 hp from its 2.0-liter turbo-four.

First spotted

by Motor 1

, the


website suggests the regular A 45 will do 387 hp, up seven ponies

from its predecessor

. The ‘S’ version, at least, is expected to have a new version of


‘ 4Matic all-wheel drive with a “drift mode,” as demonstrated in the video below, which AMG released over the holiday season.

It’s unlikely that the hot-hatch version shown in the video will come to the U.S. It’s expected that only the similar

CLA 45 sedan

will make it to the U.S., with Mercedes planning to unveil a

redesigned CLA at CES

in Las Vegas later this month.

As for the reveal of the A 45 and A 45 S, don’t look for it at the

Detroit Auto Show

, which the automaker plans to skip altogether. At this point, the

Geneva Motor Show

in March looks a more likely bet.
