GOLf Iv R32 Vs 147 GTA Vs CIVIC Type-R

These three competitors,in my opinion,represent three great manufacturers from Germany,Italy and Japan.
Each of these hot hatches have a mission:
1-The Golf's mission is to complete its fascinating history with a touch of sportiness & power with out forgetting the luxurious interior & the 4 motion transmission attached to 6 speed gear box.The engine is a V6 developing 241 Bhp which allows the car to hit the 100 KMH in merely 6.2 secs.


2-Alfa's mission was clear:to create a car for everyday use that could, under the right circumstances, ensure customers the performance, behaviour and driving sensations of a car built for racing. Without detracting in any way from the stylish, understated shape that typifies this compact Alfa Romeo car.
With a V6 3.18 litres of displacement it produces 250 Bhp.Add to it the well known Alfas suspension & transmission they succeeded in creating the most powerful car in its segment.


3-While Honda went to its V-tec technology to get the maximum of a 4 cyl unit, the Civic Type R. It is powered by a 2.0 liter 4 cylinder i-VTEC engine producing 200 hp and 196 Nm of torque, driving a 6-speed manual gearbox. This makes the car reach 62 mph in 6.8 seconds and gives it a top speed of 145 mph (233 km/h).

I think you forgot one, the Ford Focus RS, it has a 1.9 litre 4 cilinder turbo engine with 220 bhp, it accelerates in 6.4 seconds to 100 km/h, just 0.2 sec. more then the R32 and 0.4 sec. less than the Civic R. It has a five speed gearbox and, in my opinion, it looks very good.

Of these three cars I would take an agressive looking black R32 for sure
