New Audi S3 - is it better than a BMW M135i?

This is the all-new Audi S3! It’s the slightly sportier version of Audi’s new A3, and it rolls in with an all-new meaner exterior design.
As for the specs? Well, not much has changed, to be honest. You’ll still find the same 2-litre 4 cylinder turbo under the bonnet, which will produce 310hp (just 10hp more than the old model), and the same 400Nm as before! And as for the 0-60mph time, it’s actually 0.1 sec SLOWER than the old model!
Sure it looks great from the outside, but when performance is almost identical to the old generation, is it worth the extra cash? Stick with Mat and find out!

    • M135i for me

      Daniel MclarenDaniel Mclarenחודש לפני
    • I'd go for the M135 I feel like it's better than the 2 because of its Power, aggressive look and I feel like BWM this time around want an Extra mile

  • I’ve liked the s3 and R but in that segment of cars I preferred the m140i as it had character it was different but in this generation I’m genuinely loving the A35 it looks the best and interior is far more superior

  • Personally i am disappointed because it costs so much more as its the basic " special " version cheaper than RS3 but doesn't stand out from the sline which is stupid imo

  • Not only slower than the outgoing model but that in turn was slower than the original 2017 facelift model which also had 310PS. So twice now they've replaced it with a slower model. Exterior has lost all its identity and looks like an inflated A1 whilst the interior is ruined by the ridiculous vents.

  • Do they find these exterior designers drunk or sumit? Why can’t they get it right both front and back😂 old models rear is way better, but new fronts slick. Thinking just to get an older s3 to save a lot of money. No difference in specs lmao? Lazy

  • I prefer the looks of the previous S3 - this looks a bit naff to be honest. I've owned 2 RS3's and will I get a third? I was hoping to buy the new version early next year, but based on this, might be ordering another TT RS, assuming I still can...

  • I am an Audi fan but have to admit disappointment in the latest models. The new S3 shows almost no progression. I do get the feeling that Audi let's their finance department have a greater say in what new models should look like and how they should perform. I so much wish that Audi can let their S/RS divisions just do what they feel is best and leave sensibility within the A and Q (and I guess "e") series Audis.
