2021 BMW M2 vs. 2021 Audi RS3


If you are in the market for a sporty sedan that offers brilliant performance, the 2021 BMW M2 is exactly what you need. The 2021 M2 is a great-looking vehicle that builds on a rich heritage of athletic performance and superb ride dynamics. With a powerful engine and a refined suspension system, you can depend on the M2 to be quick and easy to handle. When it comes to the 2021 Audi RS3, you get an equally good-looking vehicle that delivers superb performance. While trunk and cabin space might be an issue for most buyers, still, this is a car that lives up to its sporty heritage.

Design & Style

The 2021 BMW M2 is designed to be a sports sedan and its exterior styling lives up to that purpose. Low-slung with large sporty wheels, the M2 looks great and BMW has even added new colors for 2021. The 2021 M2 features top-quality materials in the cabin and the instrument panel is set up in such a way that everything on it is within reach. When it comes to the RS3, you get the understated design that is common with Audi cars. While the exterior is stunning, the interior is a little bland and many people may even find it a little dated. Space, especially at the back is an issue and tall passengers might struggle to find enough legroom.

Technology & Safety

When it comes to tech and safety features, the 2021 BMW M2 features a standard 8-inch infotainment display that sits at the top of the dashboard. The display is also tilted towards the driver to make it easy for the driver to operate the controls. Other tech features that come as standard on the M2 include smartphone integration as well as blind-spot monitoring. On the 2021 Audi RS3, you get smartphone integration and a 7-inch infotainment display. Almost nothing else comes as standard and you have to dig into your pocket to get more options.


This is a category where performance matters and the 2021 BMW M2 is highly impressive in that regard. This sports car is powered 3.0 twin-turbo engine that gives the M2 a lot of power. Acceleration is quick and corners are dispatched with great ease. As a true sports car, you get to choose between automatic or manual transmission for a truly sporty experience. When it comes to the 2021 Audi RS3, a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine powers this car. It provides plenty of power although it can be sluggish at times. Handling is also not as good and at high speeds, the car does not feel as stable as one would expect of a car in this category.

The Bottom Line

While both the 2021 M2 and the 2021 RS3 are superb sports cars, only one of these is able to deliver the thrill that this category of vehicles is supposed to offer. The BMW M2 is incredibly fast and far better engineered than the Audi RS3. This makes it an obvious winner in this comparison.
