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, that will right now has 376bhp as well as a host of some other revisions A Great old-fashioned arms race, that will’s will be what that will will be. Earlier This particular year the brand new Audi RS3 came along as well as 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 that will’s back to being the most powerful hot-hatch in town.This particular boost, plus closer gear ratios as well as quicker shift times coming from 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 that will, like the similar ones within the AMG GT as well as AMG C63, allows you to switch the driving modes between Comfort as well as Sport+ depending on your mood.If you specify the optional brand new AMG Dynamic Drive package, This particular adds an even sharper Race mode, along with adaptive dampers as well as a mechanical limited-slip front differential – aimed at improving traction out of bends as well as stability during high-speed manoeuvres.Visual improvements are subtle however include brand new LED headlights as well as restyled front as well as rear bumpers. Along that has a brand new rear diffuser, the bodywork improvements are claimed to clean up the airflow around the auto thereby reducing drag, as well as boosting downforce.Inside, that will has an 8.0in infotainment screen as well as sat-nav, however if you go for the optional COMAND system This particular adds Apple Carplay as well as Mirrorlink, plus online connectivity.
