The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
If you can live with its tiny rear seat, the 2017 Audi S3 is an absolute hoot to drive. The 2017 BMW M2 works hard to keep things simple, and to keep its price under control—and to bring back some of the driver’s seat sensations that have gone missing in other recent M cars.
