They seem fairly shut on paper. But will it be the exact on the drag strip? The Mercedes-AMG CLA 35 normally takes on America’s sweetheart, the Cadillac CT4-V, in the battle of the flagship super sedans. Very well, not AMG E 63 as opposed to CT5-V Blackwing type of super sedans, however. You’ll have to scroll down the lineup of equally makers to uncover these two.
The Cadillac CT4-V is attempting to make the very best of its turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine and the 320 horsepower (324 PS) – 380 lb-ft (514 Nm) of torque that it delivers alongside. The 10-pace computerized transmission and the all-wheel push system have them over to equally axles. The Cadillac weighs 3,616 kilos (1,640 kilograms).
A little bit lighter at 3,500 kilos (1,587 kilograms), the Mercedes-AMG CLA 35 4MATIC also has a lot less electrical power. The 2.-liter turbocharged motor delivers 297 horsepower (306 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. There are the seven-velocity twin-clutch computerized transmission and the 4MATIC method that set those figures down to the ground via all four wheels. The specs sheet promises a 4.6-next time from a standstill to 60 mph (96 km/h) and a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). The Caddy is officially speedier. Consequently it only desires 4 seconds to protect the exact identical distance.
So let us get down to business. On the drag strip, race variety 1, setting up from a standstill, puts the CLA forward.
Race selection 2 is really a roll race and it begins at 32 mph (50 km/h). That’s exactly where the excess horsepower and torque of the Blaze Orange Metallic Cadillac slash in and set the American in advance of the German.
But items transform in the roll race selection 2. The Sunshine Yellow AMG gets its way on the drag strip when the two start out at 62 mph (100 km/h), waving bye-bye to the Caddy that appears to be missing in place.
To see the actual gap amongst the two, greater view the video clip underneath. It is the moment of truth!
