As you can see, the BMW 2 Series still leads in pure performance compared to the Audi A3. Thanks to an acceleration of zero to one hundred in 4.8 seconds, and a maximum speed of 210 km/h, it's one of the fastest and most powerful luxury automobiles in the market.

The BMW Series 2 engine is equipped with 248 horsepower @ 5,200RPM, and 258 lbs-ft of torque @ 1,450RPM. This is attributed to the 2 Series' 4-cylinder configuration, which is controlled by its 6-speed manual gear shift. Although the Audi A3 has higher speed on its gear shift, it utilizes an auto-shift manual transmission with a S tronic, which doesn't allow for optimal control of the vehicle's performance. Due to the manual gear shift working together with the 2.0-litre engine, the 2 Series offers better control over your vehicle's mileage while retaining both power and speed.

So there you have it: the BMW 2 Series offers the most powerful performance for a luxury sports coupe in its class. Come visit Edmonton BMW today during our business hours, or book a test drive with us ahead of time. Either way, we look forward to seeing you at our showroom!
