Recall that after its release in 2013, Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG held the title of world’s most powerful hot hatch with serial 2-liter gasoline turbo engine. The engine gave out 360 hp and 450 Nm of torque, working in conjunction with the seven-step “robot” DCT and all-wheel drive, and the car accelerates to 100 km / h in 4.6 seconds, reaching a top speed of 250 km / h (electronically limited).

But in December 2014 Audi unveiled the new generation of all-wheel drive hatchback RS3 Sportback, which is equipped with a 7-step “robot” and 5-cylinder 2.5 liter turbo engine with recoil in the 367 hp and 465 Nm. Not only is the “upstart” RS3 outruned Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG power, so it also surpassed his dynamics: dispersal to “hundred” at RS3 Sportback takes 0.3 seconds faster (in 4.3 seconds ), and the ceiling is the maximum speed for a fee can be raised from 250 to 280 km / h.
