Today on my way home I sotpped at a red light and in front of me was a 318, and beside it was an Audi A4 1.8, they didn't race or anyhting, but I was just wondering, which do you think would win if they did?

With regards to a straight race, I would have to go for the Audi. In comparison between a 2002 A4 and a 1995 318i, the Audi has a faster 0-60 and quarter mile time with lots more power (because of the turbo).

the regular a4 with 1.8 liter is turbocharged. that is 150 to 170 hp, depending on the market. indeed, this should be faster than 318i.

s4 has absurd 2 turbos, something like 340 hp etc etc.

A4 turbo>318 NA

Now, I don't think they make NA A4s, but if they did, the 318 might be faster because of the weight differance.

Only reason why I asked is bcs if you would pay attention is that they both have 1.8liter engines, and that they are both european cars. Other than that, there is nothing much to my qustion!!!

A4 1.8T would crush it.

Yeah yeah, I know that. But just because they have the same engine size doesn't mean anything....the Audi has a turbo......and that's why it wins.

Are you saying that the 318 can outhandle the Audi? I may be wrong, but if the A4 was a quattro, then it should be quite capable on a track.
