They'Ve all got two liter turbocharged petrol engines, they've all got automatic, gearboxes they've all got all wheel drive, they have very similar power and torque. So this audi has 310 horsepower the mercedes and the bmw both have 306 horsepower. This aud has 400 newton meters of torque, as does the mercedes, whereas the bmw has 450 newton meters of torque. This and the mercedes both have seven speed: dual clutch automatic gearboxes with launch control that bmw has an eight speed, torque converter gearbox, but also with launch control in terms of pricing, pretty much the same around thirty eight thousand pounds in terms of weight. This is the heaviest, then the mercedes and the bmw's, the lightest, but there's, not that much in it. It really is incredibly close, it's going to be interesting to see how this plays out it's all going to be down to what they're like at putting their power down, especially as today is being a very british day. It'S raining again, but it rains in the uk – and this is the day we've organised the cars and the track so we're going to film it, and this happens in real life doesn't. It well, of course, it's real life.

A single upload also would like to follow my own personal youtube, channel, matt watson, cars click on the pop out band up there to go check it out, and i do reviews on my own cars and some kind of weird and wonderful stuff as well, which we Wouldn'T normally do on car way it's worth following there should we get into it, but before we do let's do that sound check, see what these cars sound like.
Bearing in mind, they all have petrol particulate filters, see if the bmw's any better go on. Bmw rev. It up, while that doesn't have a soft limiter for a start, so it revs all the way up sounds better. I think let's hear the mercedes go on let's hear that mercedes go Music. I literally can't hear it from here, but i can see the steam from its exhaust shooting out Music. Obviously you could hear it. So let me know in the comments below which of these three cars, you thought sound. The best we've got a vote as a ping comment, so get enough for that and vote on which car you think sounded the best all right. Now that is done, let's get on to the real competition buying a new car then head to car wow, and my team will help you find your next car at a fair price car wow, your one stop car buying comparison site. Here we go let's. Do this? Come on audi, what got a bet stop! Oh! This is so close got him. I had a better start and you can really see now that this has more performance. This smashed it. How was your launch bmw, a great launch? We got away at the same time, but you had the stronger car there. Mercedes were you in the race. Well, i thought so for the first hundred yards or so, but no, i didn't have a hope of catching you guys, so they may all have the same horsepower, but this seems to have the strongest engine, but we'll find out about that in a moment.
So then, what exactly happened while the audited, the standing quarter mile in 13.1 seconds, the bmw took 13.3 seconds and the amg was last with a time of 13.5 seconds. Okay, now we're gon na have a rolling race, so we're gon na put the cars into their comfy setting so comfort mode. We'Re gon na have the stability fully on and the cars will be in just normal drive automatic mode. Then we're gon na do this riding race from 50 miles an hour and just cruising along fully automatic three two one go. Oh this takes forever to kick down. That bmw is gone, so is the mercedes. Can i pull it back? This will really show the added performance of this engine. Look at this now look at this now. This is where it's all starting to happen. Look at this i'm loving this today, even though the weather's awful bye, bye, bmw and audi, you can thank me later for the bloody adverts ride, breaks breaks. Well. That was interesting. That bmw kicked down so well and the mercedes wasn't too far behind, but then this may have kicked down really slowly. But what did you guys think of it? Bmw, great gearbox in this thing, but again i had to watch you come fast and win mercedes. I was feeling pretty smug over here to start with, but then couldn't hold on yeah this gearbox a bit slow, but this engine's good. I think we better take the gearbox out the equation: shouldn't we so what i'm gon na do now is put the car into manual mode i'm, gon na put the engine and everything into dynamic, sporty settings, so we're gon na have a rolling grace once again from 50 miles an hour but locked in third gear.
Now, if you'd rather watch, another drag race instead, just click on the pop out banner up there to watch an audi rs3 against the bmw m2 cs against a mercedes mg a45s. If not stick here, while we do this rolling race let's, do it three two one go pick the boat, cable, the others picked up better. I don't actually have to change gear. It will do it itself. He'S cocked his gear change for sure that's why he dropped back. I don't have to worry about changing gear because, like i say when it redlines it does it itself and now coming past the mercedes which actually took off quicker. I prefer to have to change gear myself because that's the whole point of being a manual right, let's just find out what happened to the bmw again because it didn't change up this time. You know you said it didn't change up. Is that? Because you failed to change it up, yeah, exactly um mercedes. Can you do us a favor? Can you check whether your gearbox will change up automatically, because this one does, even when you're in manual mode, well that's interesting, the other two cars you have to change up, whether in manual which you should do, whereas this you don't such a nanny, this car let's Run the race again, three two one go: they both definitely pick up better, that mercedes picks up so well now, he's changing gears, the bmw's doing a better job, but a hundred miles an hour on coming past him without having to change gear, even though i'm in Manual there yeah, we don't, really need to continue with this, because we know how it plays out another victory to the audi mercedes.
To be fair, i think, out of all three cars, it picks up the best doesn't it. Oh absolutely, it definitely gets his foot in the door first, but he just can't hold on to the lead. There you go now. We have a brake test from 70 miles an hour, but before we do, if you'd rather watch a review of that bmw m135i and comparing it to the old m140i click on the pop out button up there to watch it. If not let's crack on haunted line. Boys holders the line 70 miles an hour stay strong, terrible german accent. Sorry, german people love your cars. I actually like your accent, watch don't. Do it very well here we are damn totes lost that yeah. I hit some water and it just skipped along, but hey there we go. I lost it, so addy one going quickly when it came to slowing down it lost first place of the bmw second place to the mercedes, and this came last in the break test. But overall, this audi one straight line performance. This thing is pretty blooming strong. I hope you all enjoyed the video. If you did, please give it a like.
