HEAD-TO-HEAD: 2020 BMW M340I VS AUDI S4 VS MERCEDES C43 AMG
This debate has and will continue, to rage on for aeons. Which is better, the 2020 BMW M340i, the Audi S4 or the Mercedes C43 AMG? Let's find out...
The new 2020 BMW M340i is all-new, and early reports suggest it's a delivering on driving dynamics of BMWs past, which is good. It's up against the uprated Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG that gains extra horsepower from its already mean powerplant. The Audi presents a strong but more reserved performance, but its interior is where it shines.
So, with all that in mind, will the BMW trounce the two slightly older competition? All three are six-cylinder all-wheel-drive, so James and Thomas from Throttle House hop aboard each car to give us their opinions. As it says on their YouTube channel, "The boys explore the cars driving dynamics and what they are like to live with every day. Can the newest and meanest 3 series walk away from the competition? Exterior and interior styling comparisons help figure out which one takes it in the looks department, and the back roads do the rest."
These three models have dominated the compact executive sedan market worldwide for many years, and have divided our opinions for just as long. Ultimately, it boils down to personal preference when one is in the market for a new car, but hearing the verdicts from those who get to drive cars for a living doesn't hurt.
