Mercedes A45 AMG vs Volkswagen Golf GTI vs BMW M135i - hot hatch mega test - autocar.co.uk
We know the Mercedes A45 AMG is quick, but is it as good to drive as the hottest BMW 1-series, the M135i and Volkswagen Golf GTI? SUBSCRIBE to Autocar: http://youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=autocar Having reviewed the Mercedes A45 AMG at its launch, we know its 355bhp engine makes it a real weapon, dispatching 0-62mph in 4.6 seconds. But, it's also hugely expensive for a hot hatch, especially when you consider the thrills dished up by the slightly cheaper BMW M135i and much less expensive Volkswagen Golf GTI. Is the A45 AMG really good enough to justify its premium price, and how will it cope with the Welsh roads?

Drag Race: BMW M135i vs Audi S3 Sedan
The hot-hatch game has moved on significantly over the past few years and to be a real contender, you need to packing at least 200kW. This battle pits the executive warrior against the brash and brawny hooligan. It's the Audi S3 sedan taking on the recently facelifted BMW M135i. Both are packing over 200kW, but there are many key differences between the two. The Audi S3 makes do with a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder motor packing 206kW and 380Nm. The BMW M135i packs an almighty 240kW and 450Nm from its 3.0-litre turbocharged straight six. Not only is it powerful, but it also makes a lovely noise at full power. On paper at least, the Audi S3 sedan looks to be substantially outgunned, but it has one additional weapon at its disposal: quattro all-wheel drive. Traction has proved to be a serious issue on the slippery tarmac of Killarney Raceway in Cape Town, South Africa and many races have been surprise upsets due to this. Both cars have launch control, but it'll be a test of how each car best puts down its power. Can the Audi S3 sedan use its quattro advantage to build enough of a lead, or will the BMW M135i pull away right from the get go? Watch the video below to see who wins this battle of the premium brands. Regardless of who wins, we can guarantee there will be another title challenger soon enough.
