    Because now we have both motors turbo'd.

    That should make it even less important whether it is a four or a six considering what turbo fours are putting out even OEM today.

    The CLA45 beats the M135i...

    The point was the 6 will always have more power potential and since they come turbo'd as well, most likely, the 4 will make less power when both are tuned with stock turbos (farthest most will go is bolt ons) because the "S20" may be maxed out.

    All speculation because none of this even exists right now and in the 2 series platform the 6 is making the power but still.

    Considering what the CLA45 is hitting tuned I don't think that's necessarily 100% accurate. Do I believe the six ultimately has more potential? Of course.

    There was a recent comparison between a tuned CLA45 AMG and a tuned M235i and the CLA won. So, a good four-cylinder won't step on the M3/M4 toes while being lighter and providing better balance.

    To me, it makes sense.

    Totally agree with you. Also because the M235 comes with a 3.0T.

    What comparison is this? That may be true but probably because the DME has not been cracked yet.
    Also, the AMG is AWD and the 235 is RWD. Can't say much before seeing the comparison.

    I thought about posting it but it was in German. I can go looking for it.

    The CLA won the roll on sprints too. It's the faster of the two. That four-cylinder is no slouch.
