Mercedes-Benz A-Class AMG


The all-wheel-drive A45 AMG is a blisteringly car. In fact, you’ll it hard to believe there’s a 2.0-litre engine under the A vast array of changes to the chassis improves the handling, And while the A45 AMG may not be the last word in involvement, to many the incredible will be all that matters. It cost £7,275 more the more engaging BMW M135i, but its performance is incredible.

‘The – that’s the nickname AMG’s gave the new Mercedes A45 AMG during its And within just one minute the wheel it’s pretty why.

Under the bonnet is a turbo that produces That’s 178bhp per litre – than any other production the world. This is the very time AMG has built a four-cylinder but you’d never know as has managed to make it 39bhp powerful than the straight-six in the BMW despite having just of the capacity.

AMG has a one man, one engine policy and the in our car was hand-built by Jerome Wachholz. done a good job, although this early example was barely run in, it proved to be way than Mercedes’ claims.

the Mercedes A45 AMG take on the CLS63 AMG in a race

The official figures say the A45 AMG go from 0-62mph in 4.6 seconds launch control. This is by putting the stability control in mode, the gearbox in manual selecting drive using the AMG selector and holding down solid metal steering paddles to engage ‘race

In reality, however, it’s quicker than that. In our it went from 0-60mph in 4.1 seconds. And to find out just how the car is over a standing quarter we raced it against a CLS 63 AMG Shooting You can see what happened by watching the above.

The engine isn’t good when it’s thrashed, though. Peak of 450Nm arrives from thanks to a twin-scroll turbo, so hardly any delay between the throttle and feeling the thrust, but an intoxicating top-end rush. If we one complaint, it’s the noise. by no means bad, and does a nice ‘thrump’ when you up a gear, but overall the A45 doesn’t sound as fruity as you’d of an AMG.

To be fair, though, our car featured the exhaust; an optional sports apparently makes the A45 a lot more with pops and crackles on the

Obviously it’s the engine dominates the A45 experience. But AMG has also overhauled the rest of the A-Class. there’s a carbon-look facia, red air surrounds and a sports steering while outside there’s an AMG kit and 18-inch alloys that larger, more powerful

AMG has also upgraded the A-Class’s twin-clutch auto box – which now more tactile metal wheel paddles and that gear selector. Shifts are now than before and it gets confused in auto mode, although it’s still not as as an Audi S3 ’s unflappable dual-clutch

Like its Audi rival, the A45 has drive, and the 4MATIC system can up to 50 per cent of the engine’s torque to the wheels. This helps away-from-the-line acceleration and improves when exiting corners, you to get on the power sooner.

There are new dampers, springs, hubs, and anti-roll bars. These have improved not only the but, surprisingly, also the ride quality. Of course, you are more accepting of a firm given that this is a car – but there’s also an added that’s sorely missing in the A-Class.

This means you can feel going on beneath you through the AMG seats. This is handy, as you get so much communication from the wheel. Even though AMG has the steering set-up, it still have the immediacy or feel of a BMW steering.

The A45 is never quite as as the rear-drive BMW, either, you can get the car to move around if you’re You can disengage the stability control if you want to play the hooligan, but as as you touch the brakes it automatically

Does this really It will depend what you If you wish to cover ground and in all weathers, the A45 is ideal. What’s when you consider its straight-line the £38,000 price isn’t as as it first seems. If you want a rapid point-to-point car that feels playful at the limit, the is hard to beat.
