    • M133 shows its four cylinder muscle - Stock CLA45 AMG on the drag strip runs a 12.6@108.8 1/4 mile

      The CLA45 AMG and the new M133 2.0 liter four-cylinder just continue to impress. Mid 12's from a factory 2.0 liter turbocharged motor with a warranty? Believe it. The all wheel drive and dual clutch transmission certainly help but the CLA45 AMG in the video below manages a 12.67 @ 108.8 with a 1.846 60 foot in warm Australian weather. BenzBoost hopefully does not need to provide a geography lesson and explain why it's summer in Australia right now.

      Regardless, impressive performance from the entry level AMG and a 12.67 is the quickest stock pass recorded so far. Below the slip is a video showing he weather conditions as well as several passes.

        Evo X
        Golf R
        Audi S3
        Are these not available in the US?
        They are all significantly cheaper than the A45 here, But I would probably still choose the A45.

        also significantly less powerful and only the Audi has a comparable interior.

        Incredible that there is any argument over how great an engine there is in the this new AMG... 2 litre that puts down a lot more ponies than my V8

        I read a comment on a BB about a group called Carlsson tuning an AMG 45 (CLA) to 450 horsiiiies and a 0 - 60 mph of 3.5 secs.. also in this article, the drivers claim they did 4.2 s 0-60 mph.. effing impressive

        The Golf R is not available with a DCT in the USA as already mentioned earlier.

        The next generation MKVII version should be.

        The Audi S3 is also not available yet in the USA.

        Even once they are (if) available here they will will not offer 45 AMG performance and they won't be much cheaper either.

        For now the CLA45 AMG is unopposed.

        There really is no argument. Anyone putting the most powerful production four-cylinder in the world down isn't a true automotive enthusiast.
