Earlier in 2013 we reported luxury automaker Jaguar had taken on Mercedes-Benz in a cheeky video. Now, Audi has joined the battle and rips both Mercedes and BMW in a funny new ad featuring its new A3.

The video posted by Audi USA features several people slagging off Mercedes-Benz and BMW in a "comparative" advertisement.

The new Audi A3 launches in the US in 2014.


In 2013, Wheels24 reported that Mercedes-Benz released an advert demonstrating its Magic Body Control using chickens. In December 2013, Jaguar responded with a clip of its own title 'Magic Body Control? We prefer cat-like reflexes.'
