Vaeth (Väth), a German car tuner, offered a redesigned aerodynamic kit and engine improvements for the owners of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG hatchback.
Together with Brabus, Vaeth is one of the leading automotive engineering companies in Germany offering better performance and different styling for the Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Let’s see what this improved model offers to us.
2014 Vaeth Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG Design
Below you can see the photo of the model modified by Vaeth. There’s no a big difference between it and the standard A-Class model, but it is not necessarily a bad thing. This new paint job suits the car perfectly.
On the front, the 2014 Vaeth Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG comes with a high-class carbon spoiler lip and aggressive front bumper with prominent air intakes, while the Mercedes emblem was replaced by the Väth emblem. Headlights and hood remain the same.
Around back, you can notice the new roof-edge spoiler, which is now bigger, giving the car a sporty look. The carbon diffuser has been modified to make room for the two round stainless steel exhaust tips, which are part of the brand-new sports exhaust system. This system is not added just for a more modern look, but also have a purpose for improving the car’s performance, squeezing out several percents more of power.
The 2014 Vaeth Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG rides on the titan-colored 20-inch forged steel wheels wrapped in 225/30R20 front tires and 265/25R20 rear tires. And a star design of these multi-spoke rims is a real eye-catcher. However, if you don’t like these wheels, Väth is also offering the optional 19-inch wheels with 235/35-19 and 255/30-19 tires.
There are no many details on the car’s interior, but what I know for sure is that Vaeth did offer some improvements inside. According to the tuner’s website, there is a new leather sport steering wheel, aluminum pedal set, and high-quality black floor mats with silver logo.
