AMG CLA 35 vs Audi S3 - 0-60mph, driving, interior and exterior review.

  • Follow cameraman Jack! jack_scotton
    Which is better: the Mercedes-AMG CLA 35, or the Audi S3 saloon? On paper, these two cars - one a sporty coupe and the other a nimble saloon - seem pretty evenly matched! Both get 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder, turbocharged engines, but the CLA has 306hp, as opposed to the S3’s 300! On the other hand, the Audi goes from 0-60mph in 4.7 secs - 0.2 secs faster than the Merc! Which is the best? Which is the comfiest? Which is the most fun? You’ll have to join Mat to find out!

    Mercedes front beautiful but back is ugly. Audi front isn't ugly but isn't nice, too round should be more sharp but the back is beautiful compared to merc.

    Mat I would take the 2 exhausts on the rs3 because you can at least hear it unlike the s3 you couldn’t hear it that far when you where racing the german hot hatchbacks and salloon

    The 4 pipes look MUCH better. ....also I HATE fake pipes even Porche has started doing that rubbish, don't they think that we can actually see the clean metal in the fake pipes when following the car. It would have looked a bit better if they sprayed black paint in the FAKE holes.
