The rear-three-quarter image of the CLA45 AMG was promoting new game Driveclub as part of Sony's presentation yesterday in New York for its highly anticipated next-generation console.

Mercedes-Benz is first revealing the A45 AMG at the 2013 Geneva motor show in early March. The hot-hatch shares common components, including its 265kW turbocharged 2.0-litre engine and all-wheel-drive set-up.

The regular Mercedes-Benz CLA, a sloping-roofed four-door that will sit beneath the C-Class, has its international launch in the second half of March.

Evolution Studios, which produced driving games such as Motorstorm and the popular WRC series, is promising great realism for its Driveclub game that is designed for multiple online players/friends.

The new Sony PS4 and Driveclub are due out later this year.
