Mercedes A45 AMG versus VW Golf R
There are great B-roads the breadth of Britain. So we’re using the new VW Golf R and Merc A45 AMG to investigate some of them...

Special mention for the stability control systems in both cars (which have barely ever needed to get involved) and another, more perplexed nod for the Merc’s standard tyre pressures, which are a whopping 10psi higher at the front than the back. Strange. Today’s fuel results don’t go the Merc’s way, either, the A45 AMG having averaged a frankly distressing 16.9mpg to the R’s 19.4mpg.
