Source : 2015 Mercedes-AMG A45 review
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 item currently has 376bhp as well as also a host of various other revisions A not bad old-fashioned arms race, of which’s can be what the item can be. Earlier This particular year the fresh Audi RS3 came along as well as also trumped the previous A45 AMG’s 355bhp by a whole 7bhp.Naturally This particular 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 item’s back to being the most powerful hot-hatch in town.This particular boost, plus closer gear ratios as well as also 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 of which, like the similar ones inside the AMG GT as well as also AMG C63, allows you to switch the driving modes between Comfort as well as also Sport+ depending on your mood.If you specify the optional fresh AMG Dynamic Drive package, This particular adds an even sharper Race mode, along with adaptive dampers as well as also a mechanical limited-slip front differential – aimed at improving traction out of bends as well as also stability during high-speed manoeuvres.Visual improvements are subtle however include fresh LED headlights as well as also restyled front as well as also rear bumpers. Along that has a fresh rear diffuser, the bodywork improvements are claimed to clean up the airflow around the auto thereby reducing drag, as well as boosting downforce.Inside, the item has an 8.0in infotainment screen as well as also sat-nav, however if you go for the optional COMAND system This particular adds Apple Carplay as well as also Mirrorlink, plus online connectivity.
