The new Mercedes-AMG A 35 has 302bhp and can hit a 0-60mph in just 4.7 seconds. This makes is a seriously quick hatchback. But is it quicker in a drag race than its main rivals, the Honda Civic Type R and Volkswagen Golf R. We head to a deserted airstrip to settle this the old fashioned way.

  1. 0-60mph in 7.2 secs for the civic ? Even in wet conditions, it doesn’t make sense at all!

  2. type r deserves a roll race due to wet pavement and fwd . It will be interesting. Nonetheless both 3 of them are great cars

  3. drag-race between 4×4 and front wheel drive in wet, when will that be real life scenario. I bet in wet, Honda vs two of those wins on track, and in rolling drag race 🙂 but not in 4×4 start and sprint.
    For sure not there 🙂 For sure in dry 🙂

  4. The merc driver has the worst start if you watch it back. Should have just probably beaten the Golf realistically.
    The BEST CAR here is the Honda, but the one most actually end up buying is one of the other two (or an S3 it seems)

  5. I feel that this video is sponsored by Mercedes. Look at the description. Its all about the A35. You guys should do this video again in better more fair conditions.

  6. Aree you serious…. it aint a fair fight itss fukinn wet…. how do you daaree posting does awful numbers from the type-R in the worst conditionsss
