is planning on revealing its A45 hatch to the world soon. In the meantime, it’s teasing the stupid powerful Euro-only Merc with a decidedly unfestive drift video. “Drift” is the operative word here, as the next-gen A45 will have a new version of


‘ 4Matic with a “drift mode,” similar to the

AMG GT 4-Door


As is obvious from the massive amount of tire screeching in the video, it seems to work. We imagine the trick is similar to how


attacked drift mode with its all-wheel drive

Focus RS

. A copious amount of power always helps get the rear end to swing about, and this little Mercedes is expected to have more than enough. The little sibling


now makes 302 horsepower, and


place this one above the 400 mark. Before this generation, the A45 had been tuned all the way up to 375 horsepower, lucrative for the segment and a production 2.0-liter turbo.

We’d love to get the hatchback in the U.S., but we’ll only expect the

CLA 45

sedan to be sold here eventually. Not as though sedans are lighting the charts up, but Mercedes is planning to debut a redesigned


in Las Vegas. For now, we’ll gaze upon the drifting Mercedes hatchback that we can’t have from afar.
