Chris Harris drives the vehicle and walks around Frankfurt.
Before the rest of the world caught up to the insane amount of power in the hot hatchback segment, the Mercedes-AMG A45 reigned supreme. But Ford, Volkswagen, Honda and Audi have caught up and AMG is in serious trouble. So AMG, doing what it does best, extracted an extra 30 horsepower from the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine for a whopping total of 376 hp. Is that enough for the A45 to stay atop the list of the world's hottest hatchbacks? Chris Harris got into one to find out.
As an added bonus we also get an inside look at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Check out the video below and enjoy the fact that hatchbacks now have sports car power.
