These three cars couldn't be more similar It's almost as if they were made in the same country… BMW M135i is now front-wheel drive, it therefore competes more directly than ever with the Audi S3 Sportback and the Mercedes-AMG A35 For this reason, their recipes are all quite similar In this new video from Carwow, we see these three cars go head to head in a series of drag races and a brake test
The three cars, on paper, match very well They all have 2 turbocharged four-cylinder engines of 0 litre, develop approximately 300 horses and around 300 lb-ft of torque, give or take a few ponies and lb-ft They all also have automatic gearboxes, although the BMW uses an automatic torque converter while the other two have a double clutch, and they all have Haldex based all-wheel drive systems Damn it, they all barely even weigh 1500 kg So, the differences in performance will boil down to calibration and adjustment, really So, what is the best?
well, if you care about speed, the Audi S3 Sportback is the best He easily won all three drag races; the standing race and the two rolling races However, the way Audi won these races is actually more interesting than the victories themselves. You should really watch the video to see for yourself, because all three cars clearly have their own strengths and weaknesses and, although they are so similar on paper, actually react very differently in the real world.
This video is not subject to any subjective driving test, so it won't tell you which car is better to drive on a winding road, who is more comfortable or has the best technology Instead, it is simply a video with objective and reproducible performance So, if all you care about is straight line speed, you want the Audi S3 Sportback
