Those plucky Brits get to have all the fun before the Colonies. The boys on the other side of the pond have gotten their tea drinking mitts on the brand new CLA45 AMG and it's hot hatch brother, the A45 AMG, and did what any respectable automotive journalist would do… Pit the almost identical cars against one another in a Civil War type showdown.
The two cars share everything except the sheet metal, so this war could be a close one. I have to assume that you already watched the video before you read these sentences, so I don't feel bad about any spoilers. Both of these cars have been able to shout about the hills in true AMG fashion by having deep and throaty noises coming from the back end when your foot mashes the loud pedal.
This is the first time that the AMG skunk works have had a go at a 4 cylinder motor, and boy have they gotten it right. The 2.0L 4 cylinder motor is the most powerful power plant per liter on the market, ever. As for the interior, the only, and I repeat ONLY difference in the two is the fact that one of the cars gets a bit more room due to it's hatch setup. The ride will still break your molars out of your mouth, but who cares?!? You get to rage down the road like your hair is on fire, and listen to the popping and gurgling from the exhaust that is reserved for only the finest vehicles to roll out of the AMG factory in Affalterbach. I cannot wait to drive one of these incredible machines.
