2019 BMW M2 vs. 2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG A45


Being an all-round fantastic car, the 2019 BMW M2 is a force to be reckon with. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG A45 is a popular choice for people who are looking for a hatchback car.

Here is a comparison between both cars.

Design & Style

With leather upholstery, edges trimmed in alacantra and soft-touch plastics, it feels like luxury when you enter the 2019 BMW M2. The M2 goes to show us that you don’t have to sacrifice space when it comes to designing a sports car. Providing 390-litres of boot space and roomy legroom for the passengers, it is easy to get comfy while riding or driving in the M2. The addition of the lumbar support and seat adjustments allow for a surely comfortable ride.

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG A45 gets tons of racy touches in its interiors. Fitted with AMG sport seats, AMG digital equipment and AMG steering wheel, it does look pretty great! There are also tons of seat and steering wheel adjustments to feel comfortable while riding in the A45. However, tall people might find themselves rather uncomfortable while sitting at the back of the car because of the limited legroom and headspace. The boot of the A45 isn’t spectacular as well.

Technology & Safety

The iDrive infotainment system on the 2019 BMW M2 is fantastic. It provides a ton of high-tech features such as control customization, BMW personal assistant and gesture controls. Displayed on an 8.8-inch display and controlled with rotary dials, the system is convenient and easy to use, even when on the move. Besides the usual safety features in most cars, Driving Assistance Packages, BMW Assist (telematic roadside assistance service), security systems are also in place.

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG A45 has a fantastic infotainment system as well. Featured on a dual 10.3-inch screens and controlled using a touchpad, MBUX can provide gauge information, record your on-track performance and provides Apple Carplay. We found the system to be fiddly and difficult to use when on the move as the touchpad might not be as reliable. Electronic brake distribution, electronic stability control and emergency braking are other safety features on the A45.


The base six-cylinder, 3.0-liter turbocharged engine in the 2019 BMW M2 can produce up to an excellent 410-horsepower. As compared to the 2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG A45, its four cylinder 2.0-litres turbocharged engine can produce up to 415-horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG A45 is beloved by many car lovers for its powerful engine. From this comparison, however, it is obvious that the AMG A45 pales in comparison to the 2019 BMW M2 for a multitude of reasons – greater space and better design. The 2019 BMW M2 is just that much better!
