The time has come for Mat to get his hands on the all-new Mercedes-AMG A45S! It might only have a 2-litre 4 cylinder turbocharged engine, but it still produces 421hp and 500Nm! It's lining up against the BMW M2 Competition, which despite having a 3.0-litre 6 cylinder, produces less horsepower with 410hp! What's more, we've brought in carwow favourites the new Audi RS3 and VW Golf R! It's the drag race you've all been waiting for, but does the new A45S have what it takes?! Keep watching to find out!

    @Legaspi, Ferdinand B. A 800hp civic is not near as capable as a 500hp Golf R. Im sorry if you think you would be any quicker in a 800bhp civic. In the same sense how is it comparable racing more expensive and cars with more horsepower against eachother. It goes to show that the golf is just as capable as the other cars in the lineup, but for far less money.

    @Neil Bezuidenhout Ofcourse you would, i would buy this and that if i had the money aswell. All im trying to say is that taking an golf R and buying a ST3 kit for it, from revo for example would cost you about £2500 and it would give you 480-500 hp in a very capable chassi. A new turbo and you have £30,000 for a 500bhp hot hatch that can also put the power down in good fashion is a bargain. I think you would struggle to find more bang for your buck than what you would get with a ST3 Golf R. Give me realistic options in the same price category, and serious tuning setups in a more well rounded chassi that can also put the power down and i will stand corrected. But until you can say anything but "If i had the money i would buy and tune the a45". That proves no point since that would cost you almost £15,000 more and even more above that.

    Matt, you should bring on someone that has an IROZ tunes RS3 and race pretty much anything. Even a 720! They are incredible!

    MaviyiSeverim I’ve mentioned it in quite a few drag race videos, this time Carwow might see this due to the response

    Somebody always mentions this in the comments of the drag races but I haven't been seen a reaction from the channel yet.

    Not all about standing there revving the nuts off the car it's about the drive and the feel of them and how good they are.

    overall from all 4 cars, the A45s 4-Matic will be the best hot hatch... it has every bit here and there which makes it the most complete hatchback u should buy... Audi RS3 despite having 2.5L engine should be shame on to rivals the A45s 2.0L engine... imagine if the A45s has 2.5L engine...

    Matty has supremely good reactions. Even when he raced with the M2, you can see how inch perfect his timing is.

    The M2 Competition is a modern e46 M3. Its light, small, RWD, Manual, 3l I6 with much tuning capabilities. Easy 500hp on stock engine. And it looks like a litte M4.

    @GWA_2Ezy porsche motorsport Weißach vor 3 Tagen. Mich regt es nicht auf, dass du die a Klasse magst, sondern wie du dich aufführst; wie der reichste Mensch auf Erden mit einem markellosem Vater, der zugleich die wichtigste und allwissende Person im Bereich Automobil ist. Mit deiner Einstellung wirst du selbst in deiner imaginären Welt nicht weit kommen, denn du bist "menschlich gesehen ziemlich abstoßend"

    We need a M2 CS against the A 45s. If it would be a A45 it would be exact.
