Ford Focus RS vs Volkswagen Golf R - which is fastest?

22 Jul 2016

The Ford Focus RS is perhaps the mega hatch of the moment. With 345bhp sent to all four wheels and launch control, it promises to be very quick off the mark. But then the Volkswagen Golf R is no slouch either. It might be down on power at 297bhp, but the car is still absolutely rapid in a straight line. 

Both cars tested here use a six-speed manual gearbox and both are all-wheel drive. So which is going to be quickest?
