2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG® C 43 4MATIC® vs 2018 Audi RS 3
When it comes time to shop for a next-level sedan, most people have one name in mind: Mercedes-Benz. There’s a reason for this of course, since their long lineage of quality and excellence has been virtually unmatched by competitors in the same segment. For next-level adrenaline and thrills, take a look at these two models we’re about to throw into the ring: the 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG® C 43 4MATIC® vs 2018 Audi RS 3.
Performance doesn’t ride on the terrain of the road; it rides on the cusp of the engine. A crafty yet brazen AMG®-enhanced 3.0L V6 biturbo engine gives drivers of the AMG® C 43 a gutsy 384 lb-ft of torque, which is more than the RS 3 brings to the table. In addition, a 9-speed automatic transmission provides some of the most seamless gear changing available. Again, the RS 3 falls short. For a closer head-to-head look, check out the table below.
