WINNERS: CAR OF THE YEAR 2014

Performance Car of the Year 2014 Singapore: Audi S3 Sedan

Editor's choice: Subaru WRX STI     Voter's choice: Audi S3 Sedan

From early on it was obvious that it would be a head to head between the Audi S3 Sedan and the Subaru WRX STI. Both are an ode to how performance driving is enjoyed on different continents. While our favourite, the Subaru WRX STI, is a no nonsense thrill mobile not for the faint of heart, the Audi S3 Sedan is more amicable to comfort and overall sanity of your spouse (and yourself).

And it seems our voters favour the versatility of the S3 compared to the capability of the WRX STI. While our choice vote did improve statistics for the WRX, in the end the Audi stole the win by the narrowest of margins at just 15 votes to edge ahead.

This is telling in the way the attitudes of enthusiasts have changed. Not only do they expect handling and performance as package, comfort is high on that list as well.
