See How The Mercedes-AMG A45 S Stacks Up Against Its Predecessor


It's certainly more powerful, but is it better?
We’ve had some time to get accustomed to the new Mercedes-AMG A45, and there’s no denying it’s a terrifically capable hot hatchback. However, with a price tag north of Ł50,000 ($60,808), it’s not exactly cheap and that begs a question. Is the previous-generation A45 still competitive enough to make it a better buy? Unfortunately, we’re not getting the hatchback in America, but the carwow team across the pond sourced out a used A45 for a proper new-versus-old comparison. Sort of, anyway.

Let’s get the disclaimer out of the way first. This feature matches a previous-generation A45 against a new Mercedes-AMG A45 S, which admittedly isn’t a straight apples-to-apples comparison. Ideally, a standard A45 would be a better match, but the S-trimmed variant is apparently the only one available to UK buyers. Meanwhile, US shoppers will only get the sedan version of the compact runabout. Perhaps one day Mercedes will stop being selective and just open up its models to all markets, but that’s a subject to discuss another day.
