2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA 35 vs Audi S3 vs BMW M235i Gran Coupe // Face-Off

James and Thomas take the new 2020 BMW M235i Gran Coupe and pit it against the 2020 Audi S3 and the 2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA 35. They all have four cylinders, and all have all-wheel drive. But the BMW and CLA are brand new, so is it even a fair fight? The boys explore the cars driving dynamics and what they are like to live with every day. Can the new 2 series gran coupe walk away from the competition? Or does Mercedes and its tech advancements lead the way? Exterior and interior styling comparisons help figure out which one takes it in the looks department, and the back roads do the rest. Watch to see the outcome. SUBSCRIBE!

Thank you to Geoff and Performance BMW in St Catherines for use of the BMW M235i Gran Coupe!

Thank you to Roy, Max and Arunan at Mercedes-Benz Oakville for the CLA 35!

Thank you to Shannon and Laurance at H.J.Pfaff Audi Newmarket for use of the Audi S3!

    Couldn't you get an Audi RS3 for the same price as the Mercedes? If so, it's not even close unless I'm missing something….

    supercilious German engineers: *DID YOU JUST COMPARE MY LUXURY SEDAN TO A FREAKING GULF???

    the looks comparisons arent even fair. although i completely agree that the CLA is the best looking, lets be honest, any car can be called sexy in that gray paint

    I completely agree with their opinions on the looks of the new 2 series Gran coupe. The front end just feels cheap and almost like a knock of BMW and the back end is all wrong

    Without a doubt, you guys are the most hilarious, creative and honest car reviewers on the Tube!! I became a subscriber today!! I'm a 30 year career car guy…(who also happens to be an award-winning Los Angeles based jazz musician) But I've been an auto enthusiast my entire life!!

    You guys deliver the goods, good, bad or ugly while(st) never taking yourselves too seriously…. or seriously at all which is just fine with me!! I can't wait till your next shoot! You've got the best job in the world, mine are a distant second!!

    Makes me glad I bought a 15 m235i

  • Patrick martin

    I’m not exactly a BMW fan, but I think if the M235i Gran Coupé was a hatchback and called the 135i it would actually be pretty good.
    At least it looks better than the x2, although that’s not saying much considering that the x2 is the ugliest car ever made.

    they’re hard on the interior of the mercedes😳😉😏

    301HP is the most powerful 4-cylinder BMW EVER….?
    Sigh… Come on over AMG A45…

    I have a 2019 s3. Not disappointed. It’s a bad machine in a good way.

    "Get a Gof R". Not all of us like the look of a hatchback.

    @Throttle House I live 2 hours away from you guys, would you like to review my M240 Conv? with M performance exhaust , ideally when the snow hits on the track , top down.

    As 2016 m235i xdrive owner, this new version is just putrid

    Love the comments about Minis…. went to buy a new Mini came away with an M235i… why? It is so much easier to live with every day. Nicer than the Audi, cheaper and more comfortable than the Merc and more practical than the M240i when you lug kids round… what these guys forget and what BMW know is that most of us only have 1 car and it needs to be a compromise…

    The Audi’s virtual cockpit is ahead of its age. It’s just that Audi’s had it longer than any other company.

    That merc looks hideous. I domt understand how people think it looks good. It looks like a man with small springs for eyes and a huge forehead. Mabey one of the ugliest mercedes ever

  • Knight Owl
    October 28, 2020

    You can get the screen in the s3 to go down, theres a button. At least you could in the all the other year models of it.

  • Knight Owl
    October 28, 2020

    And did they de tune the s3? It use to make 292 hp…..

  • blink182stile

    Odd that ive seen you say a couple of times. The screen on the S3 doesnt go down. On my 16' A3, theres a button next to the emergency blinkers that lowers and raises it on command. On my 18' S3, same button is there to raise and lower secondary screen. Hmm. Maybe you guys missed that option

    Between Savagegeese’s review and TH review on the M235i….. I can’t remember any other car being so slaughtered by reviewers. Brutal.

    5:25 My sister has an e60 528i its her first car, when she floors it, sometimes it will hold a gear till 6500 rpm. Its sound is at its best at its redline and it's no where near an M car. Sad to see what can be considered an M car these days.

  • Deon Du Toit

    All multi car reviews should include a mandatory and frankly standard drag race.
