RS3 vs 1M (CAR rag scans)

Lots of praise levelled at both cars but in the end they rated the RS3 to be the more polished, better composed and ultimately the more complete car of the two and not only that they also state that it's quicker down any road of your choosing. Surprising that they felt the Audi had better steering balance and felt more connected to the road, two things that traditionally M cars were generally better at.

Things that didn't surprise me was they felt the extra torque low down and only driving the rear wheels caused the car to be a bit unruly and difficult to manage at the limit. Heaven knows what they will think of the next M3 and soon to arrive M5.

Maybe the tide is turning in Audi's favour.
