When I first had the chance of seeing this drag race between the BMW M135i and Audi S3 Sedan, my bets were on the S3, but at the end I had realized that size wasn’t all that counted.
Even if the 2015 Audi S3 Sedan is much bigger than the 2015 BMW M135i, both comes with even odds in terms of power and torque, especially since they are equipped with the launch control system. The weight of the cars is also the same, which give them a fair chance in winning the drag race.
The 2015 BMW M135i facelift is packing a four-cylinder unit, with 322 horsepower, which is enough to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, when hooked to the eight-speed automatic transmission. Mind that this one seen here is not the xDrive version.
On the other hand, the 2015 Audi S3 Sedan is using a 2.0-liter turbocharged unit, developing 300 horsepower, when hooked to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission, enough to reach 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds.
Now that we have presented the powertrains of both models, it`s high time you watched the drag race and tell us what you think about it!
