RS 3 v A45 AMG v Civic Type R v Golf R v Focus RS – DRAG & ROLLING RACE
The Audi RS3 is the most powerful new hot hatch money can buy. With its 400hp 2.5-litre, five cylinder turbocharged engine sending power to all four wheels, it has the potential to shame some serious machinery in a straight line – but how does it compare to its closest rival? The Mercedes-AMG A45 lines up alongside to settle the score with a drag race. And just to see whether or not you need to spend £40,000-plus on a new hot hatch, we’ve thrown in three cheaper – but equally exciting rivals: the Ford Focus RS, the VW Golf R, and the all new Honda Civic Type R. This is a drag race you don’t want to miss!
