Love at first sight.
As our plane touches down in Stuttgart with a slight delay around noon, the Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 4MATIC is already patiently waiting for us in a multi-storey car park close to the airport. The GLA 45 AMG 4MATIC is our vehicle for the next few days. This won’t be a holiday on the beach, but an exclusive road trip from Stuttgart to Italy – and back. Before we get in, we take another look at the vehicle: its sleek styling gives the GLA 45 AMG 4MATIC a commanding yet sporty look. Even before it’s moved an inch, the compact sports car makes no secret of its AMG motorsports heritage.
Our delight soars from zero to one hundred percent in just a few seconds. Climbing aboard, we press the start button – the 355 hp engine comes to life with a snarl. We respectfully start rolling – the road trip to Italy can finally begin!
