Hi-po hatch v hi-po… hi-rider?
Audi’s high-performance crossover takes on Mercedes-AMG’s hyper-hatch in a battle of racy compacts.
No, that’s not a misprint in the headline. This is indeed a comparison pitting the 2020 Audi RS Q3 compact SUV against the Mercedes-AMG A45 S hatchback rather than the more obvious GLA45 S.
Benz’s hot-rod baby SUV isn’t here until early 2021 – yet bear with us, because this is a more organic comparison than you might initially believe.
