Can the BMW M140i overcome a 59bhp deficit to its latest rival, the Audi RS3, by being more dynamically engaging?
The new Audi RS3 is a monster of a hot hatchback. It has a 2.5-litre, turbocharged, five cylinder engine making a whopping 394bhp, which it puts through all four of its wheels.
So it should be faster than the (relatively) puny 335bhp BMW M140i, right?
Well, let’s see, in this Audi RS3 versus BMW M140i track battle.
But going faster from point-to-point is one thing. Having fun while you’re doing it is quite another. And so to the more pertinent question: which of these mega hot hatchbacks its the more entertaining steer. Join Matt Prior and Mauro Calo as they find out.
