mmmm.. well. lets see.
the Cupra R is heavier, yet more powerful.
it has more "luxurious" stuff on the inside, nice set of wheels and tires.
all in all i feel its a step forward in comparisson with CLIO 172
the only thing i do NOT like about the CLIO is its small interior and minor things that are not powered.
maybe ull feel "safer" in the CUPRA R, at least thats the way it looks, but i mean.. if ur comfortable with your clio, then what do need to change it for. has GREAT acceleration, great torque, handling, its NOT that heavy and there r lots of things to install on the clio.
on the other side, ull feel that disturbing lag from the Turbo, and of course youll have to pay MORE attention to the CUPRA bc of this.
were talkin bout a more luxurious car. theres no direct comparassion between them. if u want the cupra, y dont u rather get an R32.
I persuaded a mate to buy one and he picked it up a week ago. Needless to say, I have driven it here there and everywhere.
I can highly recommend it, in gear acceleration is quicker than the Cup and the Civic, its very sure-footed, looks the business, great driving position, loads of space, good ride, and slightly numb steering, but awesome brakes.
If you want a very fast cross-country blaster, the Cupra-R is it!
Just been into the garage and the demostrater was sold last week and they are hard to source as they are only making 500 per year for the UK. Waiting time is 12-15 weeks. Saw one that was in the garage for a service and had the Recaros in it. Very nice but it was in Black and I would probably go for the Yellow one.
Dealer was very helpful and said he will give me a ring if he can source a test drive.
na yellow then get sum black tints drug dealer style , its got the family guy image dont u think? coarse u would beat it on a standing start urs is lighter and no lag , was it the new 1 wiv the oval exhaust ?
When I meant company, I didnt mean company buying for me, meant as in using for company business...although if they bought me one I wouldnt complain!
Went and go some info on the R32 Golf today...the dealership in Bedford has 1 allocated to it out of the 250 coming into the country next year...and it hasnt been sold yet! Just wish I could afford it as well as my 172!
