In 2022, the premiere of the new Mercedes-AMG C 63 S 4Matic+ sedan took place, which lost its 510-horsepower 4.0-liter turbo V8 engine in favor of a hybrid power plant with a capacity of 680 horsepower and 1020 Nm of torque based on a 2.0-liter gasoline unit with a capacity of 476 horsepower. The authors of the YouTube channel Carwow arranged a comparison for the new product in a straight race with the Mercedes-AMG A 45 with a 2.0-liter engine and the Mercedes-AMG E 63 with a 4.0-liter V8.

The new car is the heaviest in the trio — 2190 kilograms — not only due to the all-wheel drive, but also due to the hybrid system. The power plant develops 680 “horses” and 1020 Newton meters, which are transmitted to the wheels through a 9-speed automatic transmission.

As for the A 45, it has a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that produces 421 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque. This power is sent to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission, and the car weighs 1,550 kilograms.
