What's the best hatckback ?
Currently driving a 2013 Hyundai i30 1.6 130HP diesel for my work, and a 2011 Volvo S60 2.0 i5 diesel for fun.
I want to sell both and buy just one.
He must be a compact (to park in Paris for my job), must be more than 150HP, if possible 2.0 or more, don't care about petrol / diesel / hybrid, and I currently don't know if I want to drop my manual for an automatic (manuals are fuckin boring when I have to drive in Paris)
I see only hate for every brand, no one has something good to say ?
No FiST, I carry a lot of shit in my trunk.
4/5 doors, I (sometimes) have to carry passengers.
>"He" must be a compact
>I carry a lot of shit in my trunk.
Considering these factors, probably ur nan
One of my coworker has a 2012 Golf, and my stepfather an Audi A4 (2015), the interiors are really "meh"
And they both complain of the price of the maintenance.
The new one will probably costs too much for what I'm willing to pay
The old one, like the Mazdaspeed3 are rare, and I can't find one used.
In that case just get the normal Mazda3? The new one with the 2.5L has 184hp and the 2015 and 16 models come in both stick or automatic.
From Car and Driver:
"All-wheel drive is looking more and more likely [for the new Speed3], which would solve the last Speed 3’s hellacious torque-steer issues."
Dont know how much you respect C&D's opinion, but apparently they think it's got Torque Steer issues too
>everyone keeps insisting that the new MS3 will have 300+hp and AWD and compete with the RS/ Golf R without any sauce
This sounds an awful lot like some crazy rumor. I'm actually not sure I want the next MS3 to compete with the RS/Golf R since that would probably price it out of muh budget
I did not like the new Mazda Interiors. I dont like the software they use on their touchscreens. They buttons and stuff felt kinda cheap too.Whereas I like the Ford/Microsoft Sync style more for touchscreens, and Hyundai's buttons and stuff feel more durable
You're baiting so hard right now
The Mazda3 S series starts at $25,400.The reason i am price quoting the S series is because thats the most comparable to the FoST.
The FoST starts at $24,400.
The FoST shits all over the Mazda3. Remember, I am not talking about the Speed3. Just the regular 3. So thats why I say they are overpriced.
Once again, thats just my opinion
I won't race (or actually, no one wants to race here, even the McLaren Ferrarri yadayada just stay under the limit), so it's not a factor for me.
Golf R, A3 Hatch, Fiesta SFE, Focus ST Diesel or Estate.
Really like the Focus ST Estates.
GOLF R/GTI - Octavia Combi RS - RS3 - Focus ST
The new Ford Focus RS if they even offer it in France. The focus rs has 345bhp, awd, torque vectoring, extended intercooler, and it even offers Drift Mode all for just $35k (I have no idea what currency in france is). VW Golf GTI and Renault Clio are not bad choices either.
Too long sadly
Right now the Mazda3 with the 2.2D looks pretty good, or I wait for the 2.5L (if they release it one day ...)
I prefer the i30 in this case, but for the moment the biggest engine we have is the 1.6D 130
An i30 Turbo must be release with a 1.6Turbo, but at which price ...)
Suzuki swifts are pretty good and ultra light so they're fun to drive
Vauxal(however the fuck you spell it) vxr is decently fast and built almost like a track car.
Renualt makes a ton of decent hatchbacks, there's a v6 version I can't remember the name of that I love.
Older gtis are really sweet if your into that boxy look and they come with a vr6
I want to buy a Swift Sport for my gf, but for me the trunk is not big enough.
Vauxhall are Opel in Europe
The Opel Astra are like the Renault, but worse.
The Renault V6 is dead
The Renault Clio is pure shit, the actual Megane RS is 2doors, the new Megane GT is 1.6L with only EDC gearbox (and it's a shit).
For the older GTI, I'm gonna loose too much money for maintenance.
Why would you buy a car for your gf? Are you out of your mind?
I see this a lot on /o/ posted, why in the fuck are you retarded people buying brand new cars fro your girlfriend? Wife, I could understand that, but a gf not.
Last post wasn't specifically regarding you. Recently I see a lot of people on /o/ buy brand new cars for their gf, I just can't phantom this. Also I thought this board mainly consists of shitposting and cross boarding high schoolers.
Also to mention that ex who destroyed some aut/o/ists Challenger this month.
Everytime I see this "buying to gf" I assume that they're simply asking for advices to do the search instead of the gf.
It's shorter, we don't have to explain exactly the situation etc
Considering he beat an RX-7 in a riced out Corolla, I think it's more accurate to say he has plot music
So I double checked
There is in OPC (VXR) :
-Corsa, the Peugeot 208 GTI is better
-Astra, only in 3doors, the Renault Megane RS is better
-Insignia, too big for my need, but a decent choice, the only V6 in this range
-VXR8, not available with Opel
Forget your need for 5 doors and buy the best hot hatch to have been sold in the last 7 years.
How about Peugeot 308 GT diesel estate?
>Has room for luggage
>Good on fuel
>Must be a bargain in France
>Comfiest of the "fast" diesel estates
I learned driving in a Kia Ceed first generation (germany) unlike the memes imply it was a decent car and I had more fun than in the Audi A3 I've been driving before. Since then I'm a Kia fan and I've been waiting for the ceed GT to become affordable for me.
>2008 Mazdaspeed 3
>Comfy Interior, but sporty
>Transmission is smooth for a manual
>Wheel spin isnt bad for a FWD
>I CLUTCH THE STEERING WHEEL SO I WONT DIE AS I SHIFT
>trying to find one in my area
>lowest price one has red painted in the wheels, V-TEC stickers (really nigga?)
>one in the color that I want (blue) has smoked head and taillights, dents because the PO took off the Mazda logo and cut off the tops and bottoms, blacked out emblems, riced out wheels
>doesn't have money for $30 motor mounts
This is your only option then Anon >>14292174
Seriously, if my mechanically inept ass can change my motor mount myself anyone can. If you going to be a faggot about it just get a GTI and learn to love the flavor of cock.
