Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has skipped the “regular” Mercedes-AMG A45 and gave us the range-topping A45 S version in Edition 1 outfit. It’s yours for RM 459,888.

The A45 S also comes with the Night Package which means most of the trim pieces are blacked out, such as the side mirrors, exhaust tips, bumper surrounds, etc.

Power comes from a 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine (M139) that churns out 421 PS and 500 Nm of torque, it gets channeled to all four corners via an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Staying true to the AMG philosophy of "One man, one engine"

0-100 km/h is completed in 3.9 seconds and top speed is achieved at 270 km/h.

Moving to the interior, the front seats are body-hugging AMG Performance units and the steering wheel is wrapped with suede-like Dinamic microfibre.

As with all A-Class variants, there are two 10.25-inch screens on the dashboard and of course, the ambient lighting. Unlike other variants, the A45 S has Burmester sound system.
