BMW M135i and Audi S3 Compete to Win a Playmate's Heart [Video]
text size: A- A+
The guys from Grip Magazine were asked to suggest a fast hatchback for Doreen, as she wanted to get one. Being the gentleman that they are, they immediately came up with the best 2 solutions available: the BMW M135i and the Audi S3.
The M135i came prepared with a 3-liter turbocharged 6-cylinder engine, 320 HP and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. The Audi, on the other hand, came with its 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, 300 HP and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque.
The BMW had the 8-speed automatic gearbox at its disposal, whilst the S3 was fitted with the dual-clutch DSG gearbox.
Doreen had 4 challenges for the guys: engine sound, a lap around a made-up circuit, a drag race and interior space. First up, the engine sound of a four-pot is no match for the Bimmer's traditional six.
The race around the circuit was finished almost one second faster in the BMW, whilst the drag race was also won by the M135i, despite lacking the all-wheel-drive system. The only challenge the Audi won was in the interior space department, fitting one extra huge teddybear.
However, despite the BMW being faster, more agile and better sounding, Doreen chose the Audi for some made-up reasons she didn't share. Typical woman behavior.
