    .............................................................

    It’s time for a FWD hot hatch showdown! Mat’s in the Renaultsport Megane Trophy, and he’s lining up against the Golf GTI Clubsport & Civic Type R!

    So how do they compare on paper? Well first up we have the Megane, which is powered by a 1.8-litre turbocharged 4 cylinder to provide 300hp & 420Nm of torque. It also weighs in at 1,368kg.

    Alongside the Renault we have the VW Golf GTI Clubsport. It’s hiding a slightly larger 2-litre turbocharged 4 cylinder under the bonnet, but it's power output is down on the Megane, with the ability to deliver 300hp and 400Nm. It’s also slightly heavier, topping the scales at 1,461kg.

    Then finally we have the Japanese contender - the Honda Civic Type R. It’s got the same size engine as the Golf, and however it’s slightly up on power, putting down 320hp & 400Nm. It’s also the lightest car here, at 1,358kg.

    There’s one key differential here though - while the Megane & GTI are automatics, the Type R’s a manual! Will that be the key difference? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

The Civic is the last hope for manual hot hatches. Auto’s just defeat the point of these cars. They’re not about lightning gear changes and 0-60s.

The Type R is such a let down. My '21 TLX weighs 2 tons with less HP and I was basically right next to the Type R I was racing. Smh

That's bs. As soon as you're driving normally and not only accelerating in a straight forward road then the Megane can show her true potential and the VW her ugly side

I want more races of the Shitvic Type R losing to even more cars that on paper it shouldn't be losing to HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. It's always the lightest and has the most power, yet gets its ass handed to it over and over. It even lost to the Golf R from a rolling race HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. It lost to an AWD car from a roll. Hilarious.

I guess the Golf (GTI) has finally outgrown me.... 5 doors only, weighing nearly 1.5 tons, way too large and bulky for my taste plus a price-tag that feels more like Audi than VW ... and of course the over-reliance on digital displays and silly touch-buttons on the dash. Yup.. the Golf 7 just got a whole lot more attractive. The Renault is out due to its lack of manual gearbox and the Honda is just an eyesore with mustard up its butt.

Can confirm, the Golf GTI CS is absolutely pushing more power than what VW would lead you to believe specs wise, I have a bunch of people where i work bring these in and they are dynoing closer to anywhere between 309-320BHP and 408-426NM which is absurd, but not uncommon on this platform of golfs!

Idea for a drag race: Audi TT Quattro Coupe generations standoff (TT, not TTS or TTRS). Comparing all generations, mk 1-3 including facelift versions (so f.ex. include both mk3 2015-18 & 2019-present.)
