TechDrive-Garage| BMW 228i vs AUDI S3 Review – Track And Drage Race

The Fast Lane Car just reviewed the 2015 Audi S3 against the BMW 228i coupe and takes both onto the track and drag strip.

2015 Audi S3

The car features a turbocharged 292-hp TFSI engine and standard quattro all-wheel drive, allowing it to run with the fast crowd — or even leave them behind! And with an S tronic dual clutch transmission, the S3 can shift your perceptions on how fast a sports sedan can shift gears. It’s the type of power trip everyone can enjoy. Audi also brings new safety technology into its 2015 S3:

  • Audi Side Assist: help to alert you when vehicles are in your blind spot.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control With Stop & Go: help maintain a preset distance away from the vehicle in front, and can help stop or accelerate your Audi as needed depending on the traffic conditions.
  • Audi Active Lane Assist: help detect if your Audi is drifting out of its lane, and can assist the driver in steering the vehicle back onto its intended course.

The 2015 S3 has the starting price of $41,100.

BMW 228i coupe

The 2015 BMW 2-series is a well-rounded luxury sports coupe with looks, handling, features, and speed that belie its entry-level positioning. A 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder with all-wheel-drive feature gives the car a power of 240-hp and 255 lb-ft torque. BMW’s M Sport Brakes provide performance-level stopping power with four-piston calipers up front and two-piston at the rear, gripping larger 13.4-inch front and 13.6-inch rear discs. Brake pads also receive an upgrade, and the system is highlighted with dark blue paint on the calipers with the M logo at the front. Then, BMW’s Adaptive M Suspension, with strategically placed sensors, adds the ability for all four corners of the vehicle to respond to road conditions and driver input within milliseconds. Suspension settings are driver-selectable via a switch on the center console.

The 2015 BMW 228i coupe has the starting price of $32,100.

And here we go, BMW 228i vs Audi S3:
