CTR in red, better handling, better performance(i think) miles better engine, better noise!

few things that let them down is they are low on torque, they dont look as nice either but they are far from a dog and they are associated with boy racers etc. but i dnt understand why people would go for the leon! if your considering buying a CTR, your looking in the 'hot hatch' market obviously, so why go for a 'less hot hatch'?

your young, have a leon a couple of years down the line when you have got a sensible head screwed on!

Are you serious?

The Leon Cupra is quicker than the CTR, somehow not less of a hot hatch..

ok, like i said, i thought it was faster, but why is it faster, cause its got a turbocharger shoved on, easy way out if you ask me!

ive just had a quick search on parkers and low and behold, the older CTR is quicker than the more powerful leon. its only the 2007 leon that is faster, 0.2 secs faster to 60.

so answer this next question mate, turbocharge a civic, which ones gona be quicker?

any the 'hotness' of a hot hatch isnt all about speed! if it was, thered be one winner, the renault megane 225, so stop talking ******** please!

oh, and by the way, the definition of fast in this is 0-60 times, which is a really crap definition, but seems to be what you are using
