@ Jankes: Having a hatchback's frame doesn't make it any less a sports car, that's like saying the Chevrolet Suburban is a pick-up truck because it's built on the Silverado's frame.

A45 is the first Mercedes A I really like the exterior of. It looks much cooler and is more sportier.

A45 FTW!

And? Being a SC doesn't matter what previous car you are based on.

@ Jankes: It's still a sports car. Sports cars aren't all about going fast or weighing as little as possible.

@Jankes You cannot judge from one lap, however A 45 amg appears to be general overrated. The performance does not match the power. If a VW can have the same power to weight ratio the mercedes will be killed. I was thinking of getting this car but non of the tests so far matches the power. In overall, a 45 amg is a good car.

@Shaggy And TT roadster have heavy folding roof and weighs more than A45.

@Piorun. On the straight line yes A45 is faster but thats it.

You guys may take some track times too seriously beceause we dont know what is true limit until pro-racing driver will do few very good laps, learn track and car and try to set-up the best possible lap-time. And still one can do it better or worse than another.

A45 is faster car here.

..I think the term SportsCar, back in the day ment a smaller then average car, in convertible form. And its meaning still means that today. Atleast where im from.

Very few people here would consider a A45 AMG a "SportsCar" And im not one of them, Performance car yes, SportsCar no, I personally wouldn't consider a car like this to be one. TT

@ Jankes: It has 2 seats and a trunk, and it's a performance car, it is a sports car, just because it's built on a hatchback's chassis doesn't make it any less a sports car, but either way, I'd choose the Mercedes Benz A45 AMG because it's faster and more practical.

Same thing could have happened to TT, tested badly.

That's disappointing... A45 AMG should have been Much faster at the track than TT-S.. Roadster...

I think Benz was tested badly. Need more laptimes.

RS3 will clearly keep inline5. Does it matter if same engine is used across? I don't think so. I hope the next golf R comes with 2.5l from RS3.


User avatar

Piorun  8y ago

What engine will RS3 have?
So far Audi A3/S3 TT's and Golf's are the same cars with the same engines, and shit HALDEX AWD.
