Although I try to keep my personal opinions in these blogs relatively limited, I must say, the Mercedes A45 AMG is an absolutely stunning machine, and is by far and most my favourite hatchback. It’s easy to answer why; as the A45 boasts a monster turbocharged 4-cylinder producing 265kW, all wrapped in superb styling that may even give Ferraris a run for their money! As if it couldn’t get any better, Mcchip have had a bit of a play, and with astonishing results.
Let’s get straight into it. The stage 3 package boosts the already impressive power all the way up to a staggering 331kW, and the torque up to 550Nm. What is the result of this? Honestly, I don’t know…as Mcchip haven’t released performance data. Given that the stock reaches 100 from a standing start in just 4.6 seconds, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the stage 3 version wipe a second off that time. The modifications don’t stop in the performance department. Although the A45 looks fantastic enough as it is, Mcchip have given it a nice set of 19″ rims wrapped in super slim sporty tyres. As a finishing touch, they’ve also put on some sportier coilovers, which makes this car the king of all hot hatchbacks.
