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!

    Well now i'm actually kinda curious to find out if the rest of the RS range (especially the RS6) does better in the wet. Audis always performed better than the rest of the competition when the weather isn't kind. The new RS6 is pathetic compared to the E63 AMG, but wonder if the 40 years experience in AWD development would pay up in the wet.

    Does anyone else find it depressing how homogeneous these three cars are? What BMW has done to the M135i is just criminal. Terrible looks, no straight 6 engine, no RWD. Such a shame.

    The Mercedes A35 it's the oldest one they introduce their first entry level of terms of horsepower 302 than BMW introduce the M135 but with more torque the the Audi the new one introduce their engine with more horsepower than the others if will be fair they have to built the three companies the same horsepower with the same torque

    This suggestion probably goes against the carwow new car biased direction but I’d love to see some budget driven drag races from various model segments, for example fastest hot hatch under £5k ect. I know it’s probably difficult to do when your aiming to appeal to an international audience but nevertheless I think it would be a good addition 👍🏻 btw that comes from a petrol head and a long time carwow dealer who I must say served me well up until I left the franchise dealer world 2 years ago. Keep up the cracking work 👍🏻
