If the Focus RS wins this, it is the ultimate hot hatch.

We have seen a few reviews of the Focus RS where faces off against its German rivals. Although, in order to be the undisputed hot hatch king, the Focus RS needs to be able to take down a bunch of also very good cars, and Autotrader has finally organized the ultimate test. In its review, the RS is put up against the Honda Civic Type-R, Audi RS3, Mercedes-AMG A45, Volkswagen Golf R, Renault Sport Megane 275 Cup-S, Peugeot 308 GTI By Peugeot Sport 270, BMW 135i and Subaru Impreza WRX STI.

Autotrader decided to take this enormous mass of cars and narrow it down to the best three before making a final decision. We won't tell you whether or not the Focus ultimately wins, but we will tell you that it does indeed make it to the top three. Can the new Focus RS really come out on top against all of these models?
