2019 BMW M2 vs. 2019 Audi RS3


Designed with practicality in mind and fitted with an excellent engine, the 2019 BMW M2 is a fantastic car with an all-round appeal. The 2019 Audi RS3 proves that you don’t have to sacrifice performance while yet having a compact car. Behind the quiet demeanor of this car sits a 400-horsepower turbocharged engine that provides an excellent drive for any driver.

Here is a comparison between both cars.

Design & Style

Trimmed with leather, soft-touch plastics and alcantara along every edge of the cabin, the 2019 BMW M2 is an absolutely luxurious car. Provided with lumbar support and various adjustments in both the steering wheel and seat, it is easy to feel comfortable. Never worry about getting sufficient space for your items as the 390-litre boot provides large amount of space, sufficient for 6 carry-on suitcases. Such practicality is hard to come by for similar coupé cars.

The insides of the 2019 Audi RS3 is truly impressive and no surprise when it comes to Audi. Trimmed with Nappa leather, soft-plastics and chrome accents, it provides a luxurious and comfortable feel. While some might feel that the predominantly dark grey ambience of the cockpit to be rather dull, there are many small details that has made the interior somewhat special.

Technology & Safety

Gifted with BMW’s excellent iDrive system, the 2019 BMW M2 provides many high-tech features that enhances the driving experience. Featured on an 8.8-inch screen in the center of the dashboard and controlled via touch, the infotainment system is easily accessible and usable. The addition of rotary dials also makes it easy to be used even when on the move. Besides the usual safety features in most cars, Driving Assistance Packages, BMW Assist (telematic roadside assistance service), security systems are also in place.

Fitted with a 14-speaker stereo, Audi’s excellent MMI infotainment system, the 2019 Audi RS3 has many good features that drivers can look to expect. The MMI infotainment system can be controlled using physical buttons and knobs. For those who are looking for a fancier setup can purchase the additional technology package, which includes Wi-fi hotspot, handwriting recognition and Audi’s virtual cockpit. Additional safety features include blind spot sensors, back-up cameras and traffic alerts.


The base six-cylinder, 3.0-liter turbocharged engine in the 2019 BMW M2 can produce up to an excellent 410-horsepower. As compared to the 2019 Audi RS3, the five cylinder 2.5-litres turbocharged engine of the RS3 can produce up to 400-horsepower. Despite being similar in power, the RS3 doesn’t provide the same high rev rush that you might get with the M2. Despite being turbocharged, the M2’s engine responds with only the briefest of pause when you press on the accelerator.

The Bottom Line

Many strides in improvement from its predecessors has made the 2019 Audi RS3 beloved by many. From this comparison, however, it is obvious that the RS3 pales in comparison to the 2019 BMW M2 for a multitude of reasons – better performing engine, better infotainment system and better design. The 2019 BMW M2 is just that much better!
