How’s this for a hot hatch showdown - new Volkswagen Golf R vs Mercedes-AMG A45 S!
On the face of it, these two cars have a lot of similarities. They’re both hot hatches (obviously), they both have AWD, and they’re both powered by 2-litre turbocharged petrol engines.
However, that’s just about where the similarities end! Starting with the Golf R, it can produce 320hp & 420Nm, while it weighs in at 1,551kg. As for the A45 S, well that can produce 421hp & 500Nm, but it also weighs more than the Golf R, tipping the scales at 1,660kg.
However, there’s one key difference between these hot hatches - the price! While the Golf R costs just over £39,000, the A45 S rolls up with a price tag of over £57,000!!
So is it worth it? You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

Hey guys & girls - we're sorry for the poor audio quality in this video. Unfortunately, Mat's microphone decided to fail! 🤦‍♂️ Hopefully you still enjoy this awesome hot hatch showdown! Which would you choose? Let us know below!

Are the links "up there" coming soon? Also, went on the Carwow link in the description, which turned out to be broken. So, the website 'took me back' to the car chooser. Of all the choices it came up with a max price of 33k for an A class Merc and no A45. It also took me to the app, which gave me no option to go back to the start of my search, only return to the website! Great videos from Carwow but more money needs to be spent on the website and app!

Despite of the weird Headlight I think the Golf looks a bit more balanced. I think I'm delusional but the rear of the A-Class looks like it hasn't changed the past generations.

Considering the huge price difference the Golf R is seriously impressive. In real world driving conditions there’s probably very little in it performance wise. You can buy far nicer used cars for almost 60k, Aston Martin, Porsche 911, Nissan GT-R etc

The Golf R is seriously impressive. My only real criticism is how shitty it sounds. It sounds bizarrely similar to the GR Yaris inside at the top of the rev range (which is also fairly av sounding, stock). But man oh man, that Golf R hauls ass. I love the Benz, I just don’t know if I could stomach the difference in price.

I test drove the 8R last week - agree, boring to look at, but then all Golf R's are - but the interior - holly molly, it is poor. Scratchy plastics, cheap look/feel and the switch gear is horrid to use. I don't care how fast or well it handles, most of the time I'd be just driving it and at north of £40k, I'd expect a lot better. Mugs will no doubt buy it, but I'd rather go down a notch and get the GTI. It's a lot cheaper, looks way better and you can forgive it for being a bit cheaper on the inside.

You're getting a lot more than just performance with the Merc - interior is on another level, lots of options and brilliant tech, also looks wise, way better than the VW. It's not all about drag races and o to 60's. My AMG A45s is due in a month, can't wait and yes, I did test drive a Golf 8R and an S3. The Merc was on another level to both of those. Maybe the new RS3 will be decent, but if it's anything like the new S3 I drove, I'll be glad I didn't wait for it.
