While Audi has offered the S3 abroad for some time now, it may be making its way Stateside.

As we've seen Audi grow its brand in the U.S. with autos like the Q7, Q5 and a slew of S-line cars, maybe its time to bring out the baby of the pack. We know when we saw the first photos of the all-new S3 that we were taken aback by that sharp looking interior and the prospect of 300 horsepower in this small vehicle.

There is one problem though. Perhaps, two.

1) The Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG exists, and...

2) If there's going to be an RS3 in the works, it won't be out anytime soon.

Now the A45 is really the strong man in this competition. With more power and – arguably – a better interior, it certainly has a lot going for itself. Oh, and the upside Audi had for years with an all-wheel drivetrain is no longer feasible.


So, we have to ask: What's it going to be? The S3 or A45 AMG?
