Mercedes-AMG Edition 55 versions of A 45 and CLA 45 have been confirmed to arrive Down Under.

The Mercedes-AMG A45 S and Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 S are confirmed to arrive in Australia in limited numbers, alongside the Mercedes-AMG G63 55 Edition. Pricing for the small hot hatch and sedan is from $115,800 and $136,900 respectively.

Both cars are equipped with an AMG aerodynamics package as standard, which the firm says improves driving dynamics and performance. It includes a new front apron, an enlarged front splitter and a large rear wing. Side spoiler lips add further to the sporty look of the hatchback and four-door coupe.

The two cars are also fitted with the top-rung Night Package, which adds gloss black trim to the front splitter, trim elements, exterior mirrors, outer air intakes and window sills.

The tailpipes are also finished in black, as are the wings, bootlid, front grille and model badges.

Each car gains its own unique ’55th anniversary’ plaque on the steering wheel.

Under the skin, both models are unchanged, using a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 310kW of power and 500Nm of torque.

Two paint colours are available – Cosmos Black Metallic and Digital White Metallic – and both special editions sit on a set of 19-inch alloy wheels finished in grey.

The cabin is decorated with a combination of black and red leather and the steering wheel is finished with microfibre.
