A silly comparison, well to draw any conclusions from anyway, - comparing a 260bhp car with a 200 bhp one. I think one thing we can conclude however is considering the Honda is 60bhp down the margin isn't that big.

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.
