Audi S3 v BMW M135i v AMG A35 - DRAG RACE

Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
We’ve finally got our hands on the new Audi S3, so you know what that means… It's hot hatch drag race time!
We’ve got the new S3 going up against the BMW M135i and AMG A35, and once you look at the stats, you'll realise it's too close to call!! All three have 2-litre turbocharged petrol engines, they’re all automatic, and they’ve all got AWD.
But that’s not all! Even their power outputs are almost identical. While the Audi S3 can produce 310hp, both the A35 & M135i can produce 306hp. And when it comes to torque, both the Audi & AMG can put down 400Nm, while the BMW has 450Nm!
Do we have a potential dead heat on our hands? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

    How about a drag race between a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, a Subaru Imprezza WRX STI, and a Ford Escort Cosworth,and a track test as well? Three iconic rally cars, always wondered which one is the best among them. You are the only one that can make something like that happen, a clash of the titans.

    You would see a greater drag race advantage of S3 in dry conditions, which would ultimately make to feel like you need to compare S3 wit A45S, which might be even banned by Merc.

    BMW made the right decision to make it AWD it wasn't safe in RWD but it was likely far more fun! It is safe but no longer the car it once was. It won't stack up to the S3 and Golf R due to its cramp size inside. If I was looking at a new one I would look at perhaps a year old RS3 or A45 instead. These cars are now the same cars with a different badge. Sad really!

    BMW sounded the best... but, in my eyes, the Mercedes looks the best. As for which I'd prefer to buy... they are all equally nice cars, german unreliability being all equal... so, I'd go with the Mercedes, since it looks the best to me, and I can always get an aftermarket exhaust or do a resonator delete, to get some nice sound out of it.
