The new edition of the new Mercedes A-Class arouses great interest at AMG. The Mercedes tuner from Affalterbach sees sporty starting points in the new generation.

The Mercedes tuner AMG wants to expand its product range downwards. To this end, the company is examining a new entry-level model based on the next Mercedes A-Class, said AMG boss Ola Källenius in Affalterbach near Stuttgart to the dpa topic service. In the previous conception, the A- and B-Class would not have suited AMG, said Källenius about the models with a high roof and front-wheel drive. With the new edition of the A-Class expected for 2012, which will be significantly flatter and more dynamic, this will have to be reconsidered. "Then things will be interesting for us," said Källenius.

Competition for Audi and BMW

Industry circles had previously speculated about an AMG version of the next A-Class. With a view to vehicles such as the 1-series M Coupé from BMW or the Audi RS3, there was talk of turbocharged four-cylinder engines that should produce at least 250 kW / 340 hp.

Before there is possibly an A-Class in the Mercedes tuning division, AMG will first launch the CLS 63 AMG on the market in early 2011. The AMG variants of the new M-Class, the next SLK and the SLS Roadster will follow later in the year.
