The Germans are finally getting serious about Hot Hatches, with the recently released BMW M135i, Audi RS3/S3 & now the MB A45 AMG.

As per the MB press release, “With a maximum output of 265 kW (360 hp) and up to 450 Newton metres of torque, the AMG 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine is the most powerful series production four-cylinder engine in the world”. At 181hp/liter, its definitely keeps the German Muscle mantra true to AMG.

Of course, the A45 AMG (along with the M135i) will not be making its way to North America, they will unfortunately get more striking yet less practical coupe versions.

Can’t wait to watch the video comparison of the BMW M135i and MB A45 AMG by Chris Harris on Drive. You can almost definitely bet your dinner that Chris will be burning all the rubber off the press cars.
