    Yeah...they are kind of using this design for the whole model range, incl. the S class Smiley.

    In all fairness the A Class is not a bad looking product.

    Looks somewhat Alfa-Romeo Guila like, especially at the rear with the shape of the taillamps.  

    true

    Agreed. I think I've mentioned it before but I like the new CLA45 a lot.

    Audi has taken a similar approach, albeit with a separate electric compressor, for over half-a-decade, starting with the SQ7 TDI.  My S6 has an electric compressor too. It definitely reduces turbo lag. https://youtu.be/sHZjo0e5aGg

     


    Re: [2021] Mercedes C-Class (W206)

    Mega power for a C-class, but I'm out with such a drivetrain. It's all downhill from here. angry

    So it is a 4 cylinder 2.0 from beginning till top end model?

    Before being dismissive of the newer hybrid technology look at this comparison drag test.  Not the result expected.  https://www.motor1.com/news/497540/audi-s8-porsche-panamera-race/


    Re: [2021] Mercedes C-Class (W206)

    We can lower the engine size of a V8 and couple it to hybrid system. 
    Changing a V8 to V6 hybrid is already less exciting. V8 being slower...ok but V6 is not V8. 
    Then we talk about V8 AMGs and downsize them to 4 cylinder + hybrid? Wow, that’s a serious bet I wouldn’t dare to take.

    Agreed. I drove a 4-cyl yesterday, a very powerful one, incl. a mild hybrid. Fun to drive (throttle response, etc.), amazing interior and quality and there is even some sporty sound inside but outside, with the windows open? Nothing. Zilch. So sad. This is the future but I do not want to be part of it. I'd rather get an EV then, no sound as well but superior performance and gadgetry. Smiley

    Yes this - at some point it is like keeping a little pony in the trunk of your car because you miss the horse smell. Makes no sense to have worst of both worlds, might as well go EV.

    Agree, the ultimate ICE engine. Now just need an ultimate flat-six and an ultimate Carrera GT next to it and I keep live in peace. angry

    Frank you had the ultimate flat six especially with the Dundon headers..... unless you go restomod route, I doubt you'll find a more engaging drive... That's the dream along with the 812

    true, let's say the ultimate GT3 then, which would have to be a 997 shape to me. Smiley
