AMG CLA 35 vs Audi S3 - 0-60mph, driving, interior and exterior review.
Follow cameraman Jack!
Which is better: the Mercedes-AMG CLA 35, or the Audi S3 saloon? On paper, these two cars - one a sporty coupe and the other a nimble saloon - seem pretty evenly matched! Both get 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder, turbocharged engines, but the CLA has 306hp, as opposed to the S3’s 300! On the other hand, the Audi goes from 0-60mph in 4.7 secs - 0.2 secs faster than the Merc! Which is the best? Which is the comfiest? Which is the most fun? You’ll have to join Mat to find out!

      @FixxxeR208 No it isn't. The S4 is comparable to the C43 AMG.

    why wouldn't you compare the RS3 saloon to the cla instead of the s3?

    • Chris R
      Chris R

      Because you're comparing trim level and power. S3 = A35/CLA35 RS3 = A45/CLA45

    For me the S3 looks awesome, especially with the black pack. But for the sound I prefer the Mercedes. But I think if you put an aftermarket exhaust like the one from ABT on the Audi it will make the car much better. :)
