The Mercedes-AMG A 45 S and A 35 both make use of the same engine but the bigger brother packs a significantly more tuned version so how does that translate to real-life performance?
The folks from CarExpert have taken an in-depth look at both the models which includes some performance testing and of course a drag race.
Using launch control, the A 45 S hits 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds flat, whereas the A 35 does the same sprint in 4.8 seconds. With legs stretched further through the quarter-mile, it’s not even remotely close.
We don’t need to give you a blow by blow of the video so just push play and enjoy some in family hot hatch battles.
