3 Hot Hatches Which Will Make You Feel Younger
Only those of us with the affinity for hatch automobiles will be able to relate with the buzz and frenzy when three of Germany’s leading carmakers released the Mercedes A45 AMG, Audi S3 and BMW M135i. Each of these cars would on any given day provide that amazing and luxurious driving experience with all the features that they possess, but does anyone of them provide a better satisfaction than the other in terms of those individual considerations we make and which makes us tick as far as cars and driving is concerned? Let’s take a look at them individually:
Mercedes A45 AMG
This is an absolute wonder on wheels and it comes in a sole specification, ensuring that you could enjoy all of the luxuries at the same affordable price. Some of these includes a sports suspension, sports exhaust system and multi-spoke alloy wheels. In keeping up with the tradition of Mercedes, albeit in a more sporty way; the AMG comes with top-notch electronic system which includes off-the-roof Harman Kardon sound system, sat-nav, a reversing camera and climate control. All for the same price, you could also be sure safety has been made paramount with the inclusion of nine airbags, radar cruise control and a high-performance braking system. The AMG is rounded off with both a luxurious and sporty interior and exterior that takes driving unto a different taste and class.
Audi never fails to impress and it was no different with the hot hatch Audi S3 powered by a 2.0-litre TFSI turbocharged engine, putting out 296bhp and driven through Audi’s Quattro four-wheel drive system. As well as coming off with a sport exhaust, the Audi S3 is available with either a six-speed manual or S Tronic automatic gearbox. The manual is a choice left for the driver to decide on, but the S Tronic is well suited to the S3’s hi-tech character. The Audi S3 also comes with a luxurious interior design, which has been a selling point for Audi in recent times, as well as a standard airbag and braking systems which can guarantee reliability and safety. With availability ranging in different specifications, the S3 might not be the perfect hot hatch on the market, but it is sure a solid option for those who would give it a consideration.
This stylish, yet sporty looking hot hatch does provide value for money with its compact, rear wheel drive in addition to a stunning 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six engine. The M135i actually was designed to be more sporty but in a rather comfy way with the set-up style of its interior with an excellent driving position, luxurious materials and properly laid out cabin. The luxurious feel includes standard equipment such as climate control, satellite navigator, Bluetooth, leather seats, etc. The airbag and braking systems also ensures for safety and protection, this in addition to its other long list of safety features.
Overall, these 3 hot hatch vehicles would easily provide the ultimate driving experience; with a smooth and silky touch, guaranteed safety features and luxurious interiors and exteriors. However, the Mercedes A45 AMG stands shoulders out among its peers highlighted above. It just offers the complete package which will take the love for the hatch and driving to a different level and strata.
