The RS3 has 30 HP more, better interior, godlike 5 cylinder sound and awd. But the exterior is rather uninspired.

The CLA45 has 11 HP more, better interior and awd. Also an interesting exterior, imho. But only 4 cylinder fart fest.

The M2 is the purest of all with its rwd. Its exterior is bulky and also interesting. Very good 6 cylinder sound. Unfortunately, the interior is a bit from the past. Also, the suspension is not adjustable and rather stiff (bad for daily)

I think the RS3 is the winner, even though the M2 is surely more fun to drive.

Because the s1 quattro (new one) has torsen awd. Bmw is overpriced for what you get performance wise

It seems the s1 quattro actually has torsen senpai. I recall a salesman telling me that and the internet seems to agree

dude read that article.
it clearly says it's haldex.
It's just that the new haldex systems are better than the old ones.
it would be insane for Audi to develop a torsen system for the tiny VW polo platform.

@Raving_Cute
Not that user, according to that article,
To summarise, it appears Audi have made their latest Haldex system to behave more like (the superior) Torsen system. Torsen is only really suitable for longitudinal/heavier applications, so it makes sense that they are doing this.

Audi modifies Haldex to act like "better" Torsen. How? It's Kraut Space Magic. I Ain't Gotta Explain Shit.

What I don't get is why Audi is the only one in the industry doing retractable screens.

@Spazyfool
I had a friend with a Ferd Nigmobile or something like that once as a loaner, and among the assorted bling was a pop-up screen.

imo if the screen needs to exist for the normal operation of the vehicle then the designers should be sent to the camps for being homosexuals, deviants, jews, gypsies, jehovas witnesses, derelicts, or whatever other sort of undesirables they are.

Even the fucking A1 from 2010, which is just a rebadged VW Polo, lets you hide the screen.

People buy them because they are good on paper (good 0-60 times, more hp than m2) but the m2 is way better as a driver's car.
