Report: Next-Generation B-Class to Get AMG Model

In the past, if you wanted a high-performance Mercedes B-Class, you’d have to look to the aftermarket and even then, the best tuners like Brabus could offer was a 190-hp diesel version that hit 62-mph in 8.4 seconds. Not exactly high-performance.

With the next-generation B-Class, however, AMG is going to get involved. Set to launch in the U.S. in 2012, the next B-Class is being created to take on cars like the Audi S3 and Golf R in Europe. Yet while those models aren’t offered in North America, the B-Class AMG likely will – in a bid to attract younger buyers to the Mercedes brand.

Power will likely come from a turbocharged 4-cylinder and like all AMG models, expect a sporty suspension, larger brakes, new bodywork and an upgraded interior.

Well, we have the Golf R32 here in the states but I'd love to see what AMG can do with the new B class!
