According to a media report, future Mercedes-AMG cars will be significantly quieter than the outgoing cars due to changes in noise regulations in the European Union.
The first AMG cars to be affected are said to be the A 45 and the CLA 45. It is reported that the new regulations measure sound in the loudest exhaust settings, which means it is impossible to make the exhaust loud in certain driving conditions. Although the regulations pertain to European cars, it is reported that a separate exhaust system for other markets may be too expensive to build. AMG cars for all markets are expected to be affected by this regulation.
It is also reported that the new AMG cars will use a sound enhancement system inside the cabin that plays exhaust sounds synced with the car’s actual exhaust system.
