Come on then, just try and name a better hot hatch vs performance saloon line-up than this!

Mat’s rolled up in the all-new Audi RS3 Sportback, and alongside him, we’ve got Yianni in the latest BMW M3 Competition to see which will snatch the win over the quarter-mile!

So let’s see how they stack up. Starting with the M3, it’s powered by a 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six that can put down 510hp & 650Nm of torque. It drives the rear wheels only, and it tips the scales at 1,730kg.

Then we have the RS3. As you can imagine, it’s lighter, weighing in at 1,570kg. What’s more, it also comes equipped with all-wheel drive! However, it’s down on power compared to the M3, with its 2.5-litre 5 cylinder engine ‘only’ producing 400hp and 500Nm of torque.

So what do you think – will the M3 walk it? Or will the lighter Audi snatch the win? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!
