First test results: 1.Opel Astra 2.Merc A200D, 3.BMW 120d, 4.Audi A3 sportback diesel
Once again the 1er was by far the fastest in the 0-60 and on a racing track. Note how the Opel managed to beat all the "premuim" cars!

Second test: 1.A3
2.120d 3.Merc A200D, so actually the exact opposite order of the first test!!
Despite having largest engine and most power and torque (on paper), 120d was well beaten by its rivals in the in-gear acceleration. The considerable lag and tall gearing hurt the diesel engine's responses.
