According to a recent report, the Mercedes B-Class AMG prototypes are just test mules for the upcoming A and CLC AMG.

We have our doubts, but Autocar is quoting an unidentified source who said "The B-class is interesting, but it is not suitable for traditional AMG customers."

Regardless, the entry-level AMGs are expected to use a turbocharged 2.0-liter petrol engine with 320 hp (239 kW / 324 PS) to 350 hp (261 kW / 355 PS).  It will likely be paired to a dual-clutch transmission and an all-wheel drive system.
