8.1 / 10
The all new Mercedes-AMG A45 is set to redefine the hot hatch segment, and in the process, underline the credentials for the company’s immense performance capabilities. With the second generation model landing down under in early 2020, this is a step up in every category. Raw power and punch in the first iteration was a hallmark of the A45, but now, there is a doubling in its power-to-weight ratio to 201kW/tonne. All the aesthetics of this gorgeous hatch let you know about its aggressive street appeal, sporting every bit of sophisticated and intricate glam through details like quad exhausts, side spoiler lips, an imposing diffuser and a deluxe front grille. Your senses are in for a shock as you take your position in the cabin. Few cars are decked out with the amenity, entertainment, supreme textures and sheer bombastic extravagance like that found in the A45 cockpit. An upgrade under the bonnet is only fitting, so naturally that means one of the most potent turbo four cylinder motors to ever make it into a vehicle. Just a handy little bonus, right? With extensive power kicking in early, lightning fast acceleration is all but a given. What’s even more impressive however, is the finesse of the eight-speed dual-clutch, the poise of the reinforced body, and the immeasurable excitement that comes from the one-of-a-kind driving dynamic on offer. A jewel in the crown of the A-series line-up.
