2017 Audi TT RS vs Ford Focus RS vs Mercedes-AMG A45: Is Not Even A Contest [Video]

By  | 

Names like the latest Audi TT RS and Mercedes-AMG A45 are some of the hottest compact luxury performance cars from Germany but are they any better than the latest Ford Focus RS?

The Mercedes-AMG A45 is rated to be one of the fastest hatchbacks around but the same can be said for the Focus RS. Meanwhile, the Audi TT RS is equipped with a gorgeous 5-cylinder engine and this may give it the upper-hand against its rivals.

While not exactly a hatchback, the all-new TT RS’ 2.5L mill can churn out 400hp and this puts it in the same bracket as the Focus RS and the A45 AMG. The Focus RS, as we already know, has 350hp whereas the A45 AMG has a peak output of about 380hp.

The differences in power between the three cars may look close but when competing on the track, there is actually one clear winner. We won’t spoil the results for you and prefer you to catch the action in the video below.
