Autocar UK aims to find out which is the best driver’s car by comparing the BMW M235i against the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG.

Mercedes Benz A45 AMG is engineered by the AMG division to include numerous performance, handling and styling upgrades. The one thing that impresses us is the powerplant found under the hood: a 2.0 liter turbocharged inline-four cylinder which produces 360 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired to a seven-speed AMG dual-clutch transmission and power is sent to the ground using 4Matic all-wheel drive.

It runs from 0 to 60 mph time of 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph.

    it would’ve been even quicker with the 8-speed, and AWD is coming in a few months. The M235i xDrive is going to be quite a little beast.
