Review

This is no ordinary Audi TT RS review. We've taken Audi's new hottest TT coupe and pitched it against the hottest hatchbacks, the Mercedes-AMG A45 and Ford Focus RS.

We've taken the trio to a low-grip handling circuit at Oulton Park, to find out which of these 4wd heroes best puts down its power, and which is the most fun. Join Matt Saunders for our ultimate all-weather sports car review.

Just a tip Matt, it may have been cold (or you were nervous) but stop wringing your hands like Arthur Daley eyeing up a pile of 'readies'! :-)

Affordable supercar? Really at £51800 before options...I think not. I really love the car, mostly on the styling (a nice return to closer to the original) and the exhaust note but the interior style is not that of a £52k car. I have had a lot of RS cars (my RS6 was £53k new!) but one would need to wait for this to get down to £30-35k to make it VFM IMHO. Oh, and what was with the dopey music during the timed run - missed out on hearing the 5-pot there - and I thought you were car guys...

    The handsome Jaguar XF Sportbrake exhibits all the hallmarks that makes the saloon great, and with the silky smooth diesel V6 makes it a compelling choice
  • Volkswagen T-Roc TDI

    19 October 2017
    Volkswagen's new compact crossover has the looks, the engineering and the build quality to be a resounding success, but not with this diesel engine
  • BMW M550i
    First Drive
    19 October 2017
    The all-paw M550i is a fast, effortless mile-muncher, but there's a reason why it won't be sold in the UK
  • Volvo V90
    First Drive
    19 October 2017
    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided
  • Kia Stonic
    First Drive
    18 October 2017
    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
