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!

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

If not for these hideous air vents, I'd pre-order the RS on day1. Now all my hope is with the next facelift..

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.

Don't buy it unless you only plan to keep it for 10 minutes. It will break down and VAG will tell you whopping great lies.
