Which compact is the fastest?

Mercedes-AMG A 45, Audi RS 3, Ford Focus RS, Honda Civic Type-R and VW Golf R join the acceleration battle! The video shows who is the fastest!

The new Ford Focus ST has already convinced us in the first test, It will take some time before the RS model of the current Focus generation arrives. That's why the old Focus RS joins the acceleration batt. Also as a handset, but with Launch Control, which effectively routes the 350 hp of the 2.3-liter four-cylinder Ecoboost engine to all four wheels.

Since the new A45 was not yet available for the Battle, the old one enters A 45 with 381 hp on. Important for a drag race: The A 45 also has a fast-shifting dual clutch transmission, jump start and four-wheel drive.

400-meter race with a standing start

First race with a stalwart start: the Audi RS 3 is particularly well off the start line, closely followed by the A 45 and the Focus RS. The two hand-torn Golf R and Civic Type R drive head to head behind. By the goal of the quarter-mile stretch of the RS 3 is the first. The clock stops at 12.2 seconds. With 0.7 seconds distance follows the A 45, then the Focus RS with 13.5 seconds. The fourth place is shared by two hand-held compact sports cars Civic Type-R and Golf R. Both need a smooth 14 seconds for the classic quarter mile.

Rolling start from almost 50 km / h in the second

The second race favors the cars without launch control. Driving in second gear starts at around 50 km / h. And again: Advantage RS 3. With 480 Nm of torque, it is not only superior on paper. Although the Mercedes-AMG A 45, Focus RS and the Golf R lay down a decent start, the Audi mercilessly, overtakes and pulls away. Followed by the A 45 and the Focus RS, which is also the rolling start of the fastest hand-switched Hot Hatch out of the race.
