While it’s easy to crown a most powerful hot hatch just by looking at some numbers, finding which one is a quickest-accelerating in the segment demands the good old-fashioned drag race. Evo brought the Audi RS3 and a Mercedes A45 AMG together on the empty straight to find out which of these two super-hot hatches is the king of the drag strip. And on the one side we got Audi’s five-cylinder turbo engine with 362 horsepower and 343 lb-ft of torque sent to all four wheels via the dual-clutch gearbox, making it a true slingshot of the car. Audi says that 0-62mph takes just 4.3 seconds and if you tick the right option, your Audi RS3 won’t stop accelerating until it hits 280km/h. Mercedes, on the other hand, threw AMG’s four-cylinder turbo 2.0-litre unit into A-Class giving it more power than the Audi, with 376horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. Just like its rival, power is sent to both axles via also the dual-clutch transmission. The company claims that the A45 AMG can sprint from zero to 62mph in 4.2 seconds, with the top speed limited to 155mph. The hot-hatch game has moved on significantly, who could possibly expect this kind of sportscar-challenging performance coming from not one, but two five-door hatchbacks? And all we know is that we like it. A lot.
