But non of the other hatches can touch this monster in straight line acceleration. 380 ps from 2.0 liter - simply amazing.

The fuel economy, however, is less amazing, and what you would expect from nearly 400 ps car (12+ liters per 100 km)

Regarding the fuel economy: my average of driving the A45 for 1.5 years without any regard for fuel consumption was 10.1 l/100 km.
If I nursed it in Comfort mode below boost at high gear I could easily get 7.5 l / 100 km. I never saw below 7.0 as officially cited, though.

I wonder what kind of tires it was on. The other hatches that have been chasing records are on serious rubber
