Our friends at Superior Automotive Blog has just finished reviewing the new Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG, here is with what they have to stay:
“A 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine, the most powerful series production of four-cylinder engine in the world, it produces 360 horsepower & up to 450 Nm of torque, in a just a small pretty beast that Mercedes-Benz AMG has produced.
After Superior Team finished their Cars & Coffee V in Riyadh, they requested to test drive the little rocket, finally we received a message saying “you can pick it up”, we knew that we will have another sleepless week, and that’s what happened! While waiting for the car keys, all what you can hear around you is “you will enjoy this unbelievable car”, and adding to that, It was the “Edition 1”. At the beginning to be honest, you cant expect that car to be as good as people claimed it to be, and you will think its just overrated, till you actually turn the engine on & you hear the exhaust roar!! As it was 4 pm and the rush hour in Riyadh is at its worst, we couldn’t wait till it was night time, and we started the journey from the exact minute we got in it.
Lets start with some background info about this tiny beast. This is the 3rd Generation of the A-Class, where the first generation was introduced in 1997. Other than the fact it’s the same A class, but we can see a huge difference between this generation and the previous 2 Mercedes has produced, this car just look so pretty!
With 360 Horsepower and weighs approximately 1500 KG you would really be impressed by the performance and its stability. Even that the city of Riyadh is known by it’s very slippery roads, this was not an issue with this tiny beast, the car did not show any lack of traction and was able to reach 100km/h in less than 4.6 seconds.
The weekend was the photo-shoot day, where the A45-AMG met the A250 at 4:00am, and went all the way to the industrial city, where we tested the car for its stability and comfort in bumpy roads. After that we started looking for the ultimate place to take the best photos of this tiny beast. However, we were not lucky enough to make it there, but we took some great highway pictures while looking for locations to shoot. After 2 hours searching, we found an abandoned garage “as shown in the pictures” and our amazing photographer took some of the best pictures we have seen in a while.
The car is truly amazing, but you may feel that the steering is biased towards the front wheels, when you suddenly decide to accelerate on a turn. Also, when you drive above 200 km/hour, its lightweight will give you a slight feeling of being not stable. However, If you are looking for a car that will make you arrive to work on time even though you woke up late, or you just decide you want to rob a bank and find the best getaway car, this is the ultimate car for such a job.”
