BMW M2 vs Audi RS3
The video is a review and comparison of the new BMW M2 and the new Audi RS3 by Throttle House. They test both cars on a racetrack and on the road, evaluating their performance, handling, and overall driving experience.
The hosts, Thomas and James, first discuss the BMW M2. They note that the car is quick, especially at higher revs, and has a very powerful engine. However, they criticize the automatic transmission for being slow and unresponsive at times. They also note that the car feels more like a video game experience and less engaging than the previous generation M2. Despite its performance, they express a preference for the previous generation M2.
Next, they introduce the Audi RS3. They praise its five-cylinder engine, which produces over 400 horsepower, and its handling, which they describe as much more rewarding than the previous generation RS3. They also note that the RS3 can perform drifts, which is unusual for an Audi.
The hosts then conduct a drag race between the two cars. The BMW M2 wins in both a standing start and a rolling start race. They also compare the lap times of both cars on the racetrack. The BMW M2 completes the lap in 1:11.19, while the Audi RS3's lap time is not mentioned in the transcript.
In conclusion, both hosts express a preference for the Audi RS3 over the new BMW M2, but they would choose the previous generation M2 over both of these cars.
