Honda is much much slower no comparison at all !! this is a joke to compare 263 hp turbo with vtec 200 hp ..
Sorry guys with the vtecs i really like the car i like hondas and mazdas but if you do a rolling start with an mps it will kill you big time and really just dont try it you ll be very dissapointed ..

It sounds to me TYPE R GT sounds like its all that but its just a honda that is much slower than the Mazda 3 , and i would stick with calling it a honda than that Type r bullshit especially when it means nothing except another jealous retard.

I own Type R GT and the missus has a Mazda 3 MPS. The Mazda is slightly faster, but handling is awful. Around windy country roads the Honda would win hands down. I also think the Mazda design is dated and naff.

Looking at the numbers, it sounds like stevia is a jealous retard.

i have a civic type r ep3 and have drove a mazda 3 mps a few times and the civic is a much better to drive and even though may not be faster(not by much) it feels faster and alot more responsive and also its not a mazda which is a bonus.
