The high-seller four door coupe from Mercedes-Benz, the CLA45 AMG, takes on the BMW 1M, one of the best bimmers developed by the Bavarians in the last decade.

The two super sporty compact cars get some work done under the hood before the jump into the drag race. The CLA45 AMG in this video sports 410 horsepower from an ECU tune, while the “baby-M” gets downpipes, intercooler, CAI and an ECU tune as well. The total power output now for the 1M is 400 horsepower.

A manual transmission sends the power to the 1M’s wheels, while the CLA45 AMG has a 7-speed automatic transmission.

Which one is faster? Let’s find out.

    it would be fair if both cars were stock and accelerated at the same time or even started from a stand still like a normal drag. its easy to compare those cars to a 400kw VW Citi Golf and make the headline – “VW Citi Golf Destroys BMW & Mercedes’ Golden Boys”. I hate comparisons where cars are not stock. its not accurate. you dont drive a M4 out of the dealership and beat a Lambo Gallardo. believe me, I’m a Bmw fan and had 4 great Beamers. still have one. just a dude with an opinion.

    BMW 1M Coupe vs. Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG. Truth be told, Mercedes makes better automobiles, I am assuming we all know that by now. BMW generally has the edge due to pricing.
