Mercedes A45 AMG priced from AU$74,900?

Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG

Hey, would you believe this, a carrier pigeon has just flown through a window and left us a message. No, not that kind of message a real message, you know, with proper information and stuff. It concerns what is sure to be the first step into AMG ownership for most buyers, the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG.

Anyway, here’s what the message said, take particular note of the last line:

So, in real world terms a vanilla A45 AMG, if you can call it that, should be a smidge into the 80K price range driveaway. That is quite a lot for a small hatchback no doubt, but for an AMG product, with BMW 1M performance, it’s a bit of a bargain.

It would seem AMG have tuned this 2.0l 4pot to the max, wonder if the engine has room for after market tunes without having to replace half the engine components.

I was considering the BMW M135i but this one looks better and also goes better for around the same price!

Jav, I would still go for the M135i.

I test drove this one in Canberra last weekend and I would find it hard to believe that the AMG could be better. The straight 6 in the BMW is glorious as is the handling, seating position and relatively compliant suspension.

4 cyl AWD AMG vs 6 cyl RWD M135i

I’ll stick with my M135i.

Inside of the Merc looks… tacky.

I’m a BM fanboi by most accounts, but TBH I would much prefer a car that I could look at sitting in my garage everyday than not……….. hence why you won’t find a MSport135 in my shed. In contrast I have always been anti Merc, too much of an “old man’s car”, this little car is different, funky and goes like a scalded cat out of the box, bang for your buck and AMG versus a NON ///M 1 series, the AMG will win it for me I am afraid this time round, well at least until we see what an ///M2 looks like.
