There's weight distribution, cam profile, drive system, tires, launch control system, clutches, turbo lag and psi, bore and stroke (displacement), fuel management, etc etc etc etc.

It absolutely screamed at 8000rpm, but was low and smooth sounding under vtec threshold. Had wishbone front suspension which gave it amazing cornering because weight shift increased camber. What a piece of engineering for under 30k

    @John Brown you could compare the dsg to the rs3 and the Mercedes, as they are automatic, but to compare the dsg to the focus and civic, which are manuals, is not really a test of the vehicle as much as the transmission. As it is, the manual golf loses to the focus and the civic, and the automatic loses to the rs3 and the AMG. Tough day for Volkswagen

    All great cars! Well, certainly the Audi, AMG and Type R! ;) The AMG was my second choice to buy, incidentally. If I wanted a drag car I, of course, wouldn't have bought the Type R but I wanted a drivers car; an all-rounder. An engineering masterpiece by Honda. I'm not interested in having a car that's fastest in a straight line! When would i ever drive like that? I don't. I like a car that handles well and is great around the bends and twisty roads; comfort and practicality. I wanted a car that doesn't look the same as everything else or 'just another hatch/hot-hatch. So happy with my choice and i get so many people commenting, positively, on how it looks. Not bad considering it's looks are so 'divisive'. I wouldn't have received so many comments if i had chosen any of the others. Not that it's about that, of course! :)

    putting the golf in manual is wrong because it is much slower and bought much less. Golf is better than the honda.

    Well the rs3 does have a 2.5L vs 2.0L in the others, so that is a rather large advantage in this competitive playing field

    Not really, you could have a m140i with a 3L 6 cylinder engine and it still wouldn’t beat the rs3, probably wont even beat the a45

    Bit of an unfair race also because the Audi and the Merc had DSG gearbox while others had manual gearboxes and and didn't have launch control where the Autos did

    Fun fact. You can configure the RS3 to a point where you can actually get yourself an Audi Q8 for the same price.

    The Civic is the only one I’d buy. It won’t ever break, it has the best manual shifter, it’s light weight, and that engine just pulls and pulls harder than the Golf R and the Focus RS. The Audi and Mercedes are on different levels, as they are luxury cars that happen to be very capable. You can’t really compare them with the cheaper Ford, Volkswagen and Honda.

    Tbh the focus rs is the best value for what you get here and with a mountune upgrade it beats any super hatch and still staying around 40k€

    If you like to dragrace from a standing start. On all other tests the Civic is faster and even cheaper AND better build quality. All other cars can be tuned as well you know.

    The civic most likely would of won if they did a roll race from 40 or 50 where your drive train wouldn’t matter, the Type R was reeling in the A45 AMG after it passed the focus RS

    Man it would be great if you show us a chart that indicates the price, horse power, type of transmission, fwd/rwd/awd/4wd, type of tire and few other things before the drag race starts so that we can figure out which one is more value for money.

    I'm I the only one noticing they took footage from 2 different roll races? One where the Focus RS is clearly in front of the Golf and racing the Type R neck and neck, and another one where the Type R passes both Golf and RS that stay side by side?

    Remember when Alfa Romeo wedged a big V6 into a 147 GTA, and VW did the same with a Golf R32? More cylinders made those hot hatches special. Same goes for the RS 3.

    The Audi and merc completely go against what a hot hatch should be, they are meant to be affordable fun, and while no car in the race is all that cheap, the Audi and merc are ridiculously too expensive

    fk8 should have more power, we do respect the civic tradition, the fwd, the weight, but irl, no one really has that skill to hit the sweet spot, and thats why audi is dominating the public road, sufficient power, easy to maneuver
