Mercedes couldn’t let the Audi RS3 get away with having more power than its AMG A45. As part of a wholesale A-Class facelift, the idea currently has 376bhp along having a host of some other revisions A not bad old-fashioned arms race, in which’s is usually what the idea is usually. Earlier in which year the fresh Audi RS3 came along along with trumped the previous A45 AMG’s 355bhp by a whole 7bhp.Naturally in which raised an eyebrow or two at Stuttgart, so action had to be taken. Along with flipping the name to read AMG A45 – in line with current AMG naming policy – a significant hike in power to 376bhp means the idea’s back to being the most powerful hot-hatch in town.in which boost, plus closer gear ratios along with quicker shift times by the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, drop the 0-62mph time to just 4.2sec, which just happens to be 0.1sec quicker than the RS3.You also get a Dynamic Select switch in which, like the similar ones inside the AMG GT along with AMG C63, allows you to switch the driving modes between Comfort along with Sport+ depending on your mood.If you specify the optional fresh AMG Dynamic Drive package, in which adds an even sharper Race mode, along with adaptive dampers along having a mechanical limited-slip front differential – aimed at improving traction out of bends along with stability during high-speed manoeuvres.Visual modifications are subtle yet include fresh LED headlights along with restyled front along with rear bumpers. Along having a fresh rear diffuser, the bodywork modifications are claimed to clean up the airflow around the vehicle thereby reducing drag, as well as boosting downforce.Inside, the idea has an 8.0in infotainment screen along with sat-nav, yet if you go for the optional COMAND system in which adds Apple Carplay along with Mirrorlink, plus online connectivity.
