Mercedes-Benz calls its high-performance division AMG, and the sub-brand has become synonymous with groundbreakingly powerful, fun to drive, and expensive vehicles. But with the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG, the “expensive” part is falling by the wayside.  Under the sexy sheetmetal is a 355-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder driving all four wheels. The engine is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and the suspension is tuned to extract maximum handling from the chassis. Yet all of this can be yours for $47,450. Yes, that’s still pricey, but consider this: Until the CLA45, the least expensive AMG you could get was the C63 AMG, which costs just under $60,000. This new AMG opens up the brand to a whole new price bracket, and we think they’re going to be very happy with what they find.
