Audi S3 Vs. BMW 135i | eHow

27 Oct 2014 | Author: | Comments Off on Audi S3 Vs. BMW 135i | eHow
Audi S3


The 135i is powered by the N54 3.0-liter straight-six engine, twin-turbocharged to produce 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. This is a powerful motor that offers usable thrust from just above idle. The Audi is also turbocharged, but makes do with an inline-four that gets its forced induction via a single turbo.

The Audi puts out 252 horsepower, less than the 135i, but still an impressive number.


The S3 is offered with only a six-speed manual, which says something about the target audience. The 135i can be had with either a traditional six-speed or the optional Steptronic automatic.


Because it relies on a traditional rear-drive platform, the 135i delivers a traditional sports sedan driving experience. Like all Audi S-series cars, the S3 features Quattro full-time all-wheel drive. While this offers impressive traction, particularly in the wet, with all four wheels being driven, the S3 does not offer the same level of involvement the 135i does.


Both of these cars deliver similar performance. The 135i covers the 0-to-60 dash in 5.3 seconds while the S3 is a hair slower, getting to 60 in 5.7 seconds. Both cars have electronically limited top speeds, with the BMW reaching 150 mph and the Audi reaching 155 mph.
