355bhp Mercedes A45 AMG driven flat out - autocar.co.uk

The Mercedes A45 AMG is the first AMG to be powered by a four-cylinder engine. But with 355bhp any doubts as to its performance evaporate. Could this be the first hyper hot hatch? Steve Sutcliffe finds out. SUBSCRIBE to Autocar: http://youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=autocar The Mercedes A45 AMG is the German car-maker's first proper hot hatch, and with the world's most powerful production 2.0-litre petrol engine, it marks quite an entrance. The hand-built motor is allied with four-wheel drive instead of the driven rear wheels of its main rival, the BMW M135i, and gets the AMG to 62mph in 4.6 seconds. Steve Sutcliffe drove it flat-out on track to find out if handles as well as it goes.

RS 3 v A45 AMG v Civic Type R v Golf R v Focus RS - DRAG & ROLLING RACE | Head-to-Head
The Audi RS3 is the most powerful new hot hatch money can buy. With its 400hp 2.5-litre, five cylinder turbocharged engine sending power to all four wheels, it has the potential to shame some serious machinery in a straight line - but how does it compare to its closest rival? The Mercedes-AMG A45 lines up alongside to settle the score with a drag race. And just to see whether or not you need to spend £40,000-plus on a new hot hatch, we've thrown in three cheaper - but equally exciting rivals: the Ford Focus RS, the VW Golf R, and the all new Honda Civic Type R. This is a drag race you don't want to miss!
