Chris Harris has recently went for a spin in two premium hot hatches, the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG and the BMW M135i.
If you’re interested in buying a brand new premium hot hatch, than you’re in the right place, because the footage posted below is showing Chris Harris drive the new Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG and the BMW M135i. The journalist is stating that the BMW vehicle isn’t a true M car, like the 1M Coupe, and it seems that he is more impressed in the Mercedes-Benz car. You can check out the video below right after the jump.
As a quick reminder, the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG is coming with a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine under its hood, which is producing an impressive 360 HP (256 kW), at 6,000 rpm, with a peak torque of 450 Nm (332 lb-ft), available between 2,250 and 5,000 rpm. The engine is mated to an AMG Speed Shift DCT seven-speed sports transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 4.6 seconds and top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
The BMW M135i is getting a 3.0 liter six-cylinder engine under its hood, producing a total output of 315 HP (235 kW) and 450 Nm of torque (332 lb-ft). The model can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.9 seconds, before reaching its electronically limited top speed of 255 km/h (155 mph).
