Drag Race: Audi RS3 vs Mercedes A45 AMG

Fresh from a recent (and very closely-fought) victory over the BMW M2, the Mercedes-AMG A45 4MATIC lines up against Audi’s fiery five-pot RS3 Sportback in a no-holds-barred all-wheel drive straight-line shootout.

Both are five-door hatchbacks. Both feature all-wheel drive. And while the Mercedes-AMG has more power, the Audi hits back with a lighter kerb weight. Can the A45 continue its winning streak or will the RS3 be the new champ? Let’s see how it plays out over a 380-metre drag race.
