7. Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG
If small-but-potent packages are your thing, Mercedes A45 AMG is sure to pique your interest. That’s because its 2.0-liter turbo four cylinder makes a whopping 360 hp. Unlike the 4C, this car sends power to all four wheels via the newest version of the brand’s 4Matic all-wheel drive system.
This car is based on Mercedes’ MFA front-wheel drive platform, but just like every future AMG, it is only available as a 4Matic. Power goes to the front wheels first, but a split-second of slippage is all it takes to change that.
It’s won’t be offered in North America, but we will soon get the same goodies in the stylish CLA sedan!
