Shame the hatch will no doubt not be for sale in the US and instead one will need to opt for the GLA45 to get around that problem, still now AMG have put down a performance marker it will be interesting to see if Audi finally turn the wick up on the 5pot for the next rs3, and if the next focus RS finally gets an appropriate amount of power this time around just in time for it not to be sold in US [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.fordinsidenews.com/forums/images/smilies/sad.gif[/IMG].

Is a pity America will lose the power war of compact cars: Ford Focus ST, next Audi S3 hatch, this marvelous Mercedes-Benz AMG A45s hatch, the next BMW 1 and 2 series M... You will only have the VW Golf GTI.

...America didn’t lose the power wars. We came out with a more advanced weapon. For the price of those vehicles, you can buy a Model 3P. How fast is that, you ask?

The Tesla Model 3 ... It serves everything and serves for nothing ...
Luxury car? Tesla 3
Sport car? Tesla 3
Sport sedan? Tesla 3
Pony car? Tesla 3
Family car? Tesla 3
Track racing car? Tesla 3
Economy car? Tesla 3
Green car? Tesla 3

It will be because he wants to do everything, that is why he does not end up having personality or attractive, IMO?

...amazing, isn’t it? That’s how EVs will continue to dominate. They can do it all. And M-B will continue dumping money down an ICE hole.

Well, let's see...the Model 3:

was late, is one of the homeliest vehicles ever made, lacks the aesthetic attitude to really appeal to the performance crowd, isn't built very well, and was a tragic comedy in terms of Musk updates.

If by "do it all", you mean be automotive satire wrapped in a half-melted, rolling bar of soap...err, OK....

..,such a drama queen. It is hardly one of the homeliest ever made. I could rattle off dozens of worse looking cars on sale right now. You want to see awful, look at the new Supra. Look at an X6...a Panamera...a new 7 ser...and WTF is any BMW GT? They all look like bloated corpses of the regular series model. So, stop. Move on to a reasonable criticism.

Re: The most powerfull 4-cyl engine? Look at Mercedes-Benz

... and back to real fun to drive cars (not refrigerators on wheels)... The most powerful 4 cyl engine (in a less powerful version for the Mercedes-AMG A35) versus the VW star, the Golf R. Real interesting exteriors, real good quality , real modern and interesting interiors, real good sound of the engines, real good drives maners. Real cars! Real engines! Real fun!

Yet, you failed to rattle off a single example in its target demographic, and you failed to address anything but that mopey-molly's styling.

It's just too easy.

If GM can justify Buick, and if Honda can justify Acura, we can damned well have Mercury back.

...so a 3 ser BMW GT isn’t in the same target demo. Lolok. And it is selling so well BMW killing the model. You try too hard to look more knowledgable than you are. Muppet.
