AMG mulls more four-cylinder engine equipped models

AMG mulls more four-cylinder engine equipped models

In a move that may not appeal to fans, AMG boss Tobias Moers has said that the company’s small capacity four-cylinder 2.0-litre engine could be used in other models too. Currently, the engine is used in the Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG, CLA 45 AMG and the GLA 45 AMG.

Moers said, "It’s probably something we should consider. We haven’t decided anything but in my own mind, as an engineer, I think it could be an interesting solution to have a high-powered four-cylinder petrol engine in a car that’s not a compact – maybe even a sedan."

This small capacity motor could be the performance division’s ploy to avail of tax benefits in certain markets as suggested by Moers.

However though there is no official communication on this, there are reports that the new small capacity four-pot motor might be offered as an option alongside the regular V8 engine.

The AMG badge is associated with performance and large motors, but despite the small capacity motor being less than half the size of itsbig block traditional engines, it still packs a punch in the vehicles it’s used in. AMG making optimum use of the small 2.0-litre engine with twin-turbos has managed to churn out 355bhp and 450Nm of torque. India will get its share of this engine when the CLA45 AMG is launched later this year.
