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.

There’s also the aggressive Panamericana front grille with vertical slats and quad exhaust tips.

And the Edition 1 package adds a larger front splitter, larger spoiler and a more prominent rear diffuser.

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.

You can have the Mercedes-AMG A45 S in either Yellow (shown here) or Grey. So which colour would you pick?
