The current Mercedes-Benz lineup has a massive gap between the entry-level CLA250 and GLA250 models, which are powered by a turbocharged 208-hp 2.0-liter four, and the fire-breathing AMG 45 variants, fitted with the hand-built and AMG-specific 375-hp 2.0-liter turbo four. With the coming introduction of a new generation of the A-class (pictured), look for AMG to fill that gap.

Speaking about the upcoming new A-class sedan, AMG CEO Tobias Moers said, "There will be a new AMG 45, but in addition to that, we will launch an AMG 35 with around 300 horsepower." Beyond the AMG 35, we expect this engine to be offered in the CLA and GLA models as well. The AMG 35 models will compete with the likes of the Audi S3.

As for the range-topping 45 version, Moers won't divulge details such as horsepower figures, but we expect it to match and possibly outdo the 400-hp Audi RS3, which we named one of our 2018 10Best Cars. AMG fans will appreciate the fact that the new version will not only keep being built in one-man, one-engine fashion, it will also henceforth be made in AMG's headquarters in Affalterbach.

We expect the new AMG 35 and 45 models to arrive for the 2019 or 2020 model year.
