AMG boss Tobias Moers has said that besides the Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG, CLA 45 AMG and GLA 45 AMG, the company's 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged engine could be used in other models as well.

Moers said, "It’s probably something we should consider. We haven’t decided anything but in my own mind, as an engineer, I think it could be an interesting solution to have a high-powered four-cylinder petrol engine in a car that’s not a compact – maybe even a sedan."
He also suggested that the four-cylinder engine could be used in markets where engine displacement plays a role in the taxation structure of cars. Although there is no official confirmation on this, reports suggest that some AMG models could be offered with the option of a four-cylinder and a traditional V8 engine.
