      This is probably not the Trophy version of the Renault

      ah Renault was worried about the competition quitting they gave them a headstart. But seriously not even trophy version stands up to ctr, also no more 4control in the trophy r but that is limited to 500 units. Gotta wait for the facelifted one to see the outcome.

      Bit harsh on the 1.6 pug.... hot hatches are meant to feel a bit on edge and aggressive. That car has demons which is a good thing I think. But agree the Honda is the pick.

      I'd love to be in a single car (civic type R) that the only thing that's really terrible about it is a weird horn...I think they look sick tho.

      How come no one talks about the Leon? Every car on the video is amazing and I love the type R. But with all the hype of...type r being the best front wheel car ever with all the records, hondas best car so far and all the fuss about thiw mind blowing car, but no one talks about how seat was side by side with the supposedely best FWD ever? I think the Cupra is pretty amazing

      well if you planned to get the cupra R... get the i30N instead and with the saved money uprade it with a twin turbo kit, softwear and some better wheels.

      Renault Megane RS is very good in corners and overall the best ballanced FWD hatchback in the world. In a straight line it is also very good. The fact that 2-3 hatchbacks are faster by a few 0. of a second is literally nothing. This point is further enhanced by the fact that the Megane RS Trophy R is Nordschleife FWD champion, over 3 seconds faster than Civic Type-R.

      I agree with you. I am a Megane RS 280edc owner.. the problem Is not the performance but the general quality of the car. I already went 4 Times in warranty and i now i Need to take It back again because driver seat started moving while cornering, the steering rack started doing some terrible noise while steering and fuelpump started again to whistle(they already substituted It 6000km a go). Now i have 13.000km and everything creak at any Road disconnection or manholes.

      which one is the best buy considering you can get a 308 for 25k euros used and a leon for 35k? Which are the most and least efficient IRL?

      Another silly video. This drag race proves nothing at all. To be expected from carwow.
