Honda CR-Z Mugen Hybrid v Ariel Atom Mugen - Auto Express
Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/videos/videoreviews/269185/mugen_vs_mugen_revi ew.html#ixzz1QBbY7ovl Mugen is a company that doesn't do things by half -- and lately Honda's tuning arm has been extremely busy. The world's most skeletal car, the Ariel Atom has been given a power Boost without the need for a Supercharger. The result is a 270bhp output from its 2.0-litre Honda-sourced engine that makes it just about the fastest thing on four wheels. Alongside the Atom Mugen we drove the CR-Z Mugen -- currently a one-off tuned version of the hybrid coupe.
BMW M135i vs Mercedes A45 AMG review - Auto Express
Mercedes A45 AMG review: http://bit.ly/ZIf71Q BMW M135i review: http://bit.ly/12lsvKI Subscribe to our YouTube channel http://bit.ly/11Ad1j1 Subscribe to the mag http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/yt Premium car manufacturers have traditionally stayed away from hot hatch market, but that's no longer the case. In this video review we have the BMW M135i, and we are testing it against the Mercedes A45 AMG - with a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine it's going to be a stern rival for the BMW. The BMW gets a six-cylinder engine, revs to 7000rpm but peak torque is at just 1300rpm, so it has instant power. It does come in manual, but we've got the eight-speed automatic gearbox. We took it around our track in just 1 minute 14 seconds. As for the Mercedes, it's £5,000 more expensive than the BMW, so that's something to consider straight away. It's got 40bhp more, but the same torque. It's a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, and a dual-clutch gearbox. It's four-wheel drive, meaning body control is really good around the corners - but, on the flip side, the ride is quite stiff. It did beat the BMW around the track though, in a final time of 1 minute, 13 seconds. So, which hatchback comes out on top? If you want to be the fastest against the stopwatch, with amazing body control, choose the Mercedes. But, if you want to spend less money and have more fun, go for the BMW.
