We have seen the Mercedes-AMG A 45 S 4MATIC + face various high-performance models, both direct and sporting competitors that have little or nothing to do with it, but to date we have not found any acceleration race in which the hot hatch German competed against such succulent rivals as the new BMW M2 CS or the Alpine A110 S.
Recall that the Mercedes-AMG A 45 S 4MATIC + is currently the compact with the most powerful four-cylinder supercharged group manufactured in large series in the world, an engine that reaches 421 hp (310 kW). The new AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT-8G eight-speed dual-clutch transmission enables you to accelerate to 100 km / h from a standstill in 3.9 seconds.
For its part, the BMW M2 CS is the latest member of the BMW M to hit the market on a limited basis. It has 450 hp (331 kW) of power and is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.0 seconds with the seven-speed dual-clutch M DCT transmission, or in 4.2 seconds with the manual transmission.
Last but not least, there is the Alpine A110 S. The 1.8 TCe petrol engine increases its performance to 292 hp of power and 320 Nm of maximum torque. to declare a 0 to 100 km / h in 4.4 seconds. It may be underpowered, but it’s also the lightest of the three.
