Calling all hot hatch fans - it’s the one you’ve been waiting for!
All new Volkswagen Golf R vs BMW M135i vs Audi S3 vs Mercedes-AMG A35! That’s right, we’re putting the new Golf R up against its key rivals to see who is the true hot hatch king of 2021.
When it comes to power output, it’s fair to say they’re all relatively similar. For example - the Golf R can put down the most power (320hp) while the BMW and Mercedes put down the least (306hp). But when it comes to torque, the BMW is out in front with 450Nm, while the AMG A35 & S3 come in last with 400Nm.
So there’s a few slight differences, but ultimately, these cars are all pretty evenly matched. And that’s not all… They’re all four-wheel-drive, and they’ve all got launch control!
So what do you think - too close to call? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

    All these tests and they all don't use the golf 8 R performance model, has extra 100 horse power.

    Whats that? Fake vents on the bmw, god Damn right

    One thing people don’t notice on the new Golf R is how low its drag coefficient is. Just looking at the front area and aerodynamics alone, i can tell that it cuts through the air so effortlessly, almost like an electric car with minimum wind drag.

    Im guessing the trade off for a golf r is least comfort.. i have a gti and love it but comfort sucks.

  • Mart54

    Boring, all of them IMO. Go get a second hand M2, or try any of the smaller RWD performance BMWs in manual... before it's too late. Shame where performance cars are headed.

    Just watched a review by automann tv and the 0-100kmh on the golf 8R is 4.51s as the rolling on function on the race box is switched off and the measurement is in kmh to 100 rather than to 60mph. This setup could a better measurement to use in the future as it gives us a better indication of actual speed.

    Hi Matt Can I ask why reviewers don’t mention the weight of EV’s. The handling, and stopping power is compromised. I just sold my new 330e as it is much heavier than the GolfR and spoils the fun. Please give us more honesty? 👍🏼

    If you use the A35 use the GTI since thats an R it should compete with the A45s
