Following his review of the Mercedes A 45 AMG, Autocar’s Steve Sutcliffe sets out to see if the brilliant Baby AMG is deserving of its substantial asking price when the Volkswagen Golf GTI and BMW’s M135i are brought into the equation.

Equipped with the most powerful 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine in the world, the A 45 AMG is propelled by an all-aluminium, turbocharged AMG lump producing 265 kW (360 hp) and 450 Nm of torque, while the seventh generation Golf GTI is powered by the company’s 2.0 TSI engine, which develops 162 kW (220 hp) or 169 kW (230 hp) when specified with the new performance package – as seen here.

Looking like the bargain of the century, the M135i is packing a turbocharged 3.0-litre straight six-cylinder, which churns out a delicious 235 kW (320 hp) and 450 Nm.

If you had to part with your hard-earned bread for one, which would it be?
