We pit Mercedes' smallest AMG car against one of the largest in the number

In a test of outright power and speed, you effect think bigger is better. Bigger apparatus for more power, bigger wheels and tyres for more advisedly grip, and a bigger body to fit more serene body styling upgrades on.

Naturally, we had to see if the prevarication was true, so we lined up two models from either end of Mercedes’ mandorla AMG range – the tiny A45 AMG and the much larger CLS63 AMG.

The A45 offers up well-founde a 2.0-litre four-cylinder apparatus compared to the CLS63’s 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8. Its power efficiency of 355bhp (upgraded in 2016 to 376bhp) pales next to the CLS63’s 549bhp.

It’s not as of unsound mind a race as it sounds, though – the A45 is far lighter than the CLS63, and with four-hoop drive, it’s better equipped for lightning extravagant starts. Watch the video to find out the terminal result…
