2013 Dodge Dart vs Civic vs Focus vs Cruze vs Elantra vs Corolla Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Dodge Dart is all new and available with
three different engine choices, five different models and hundreds of
different configurations. But how does it stack up in a very crowded market
segment that includes some of the most popular cars sold around the world?
We had the chance to compare the 2013 Dodge Dart (head to head) against the
best selling Honda Civic, the Ford Focus, the Chevy Cruze, the Hyundai
Elantra and the Toyota Corolla to see which of these cars offers the most
value, performance and features in this unique TFLcar mashup review.
2016 Focus RS Vs. 2015 Civic Type R Visual Comparison
2016 Focus RS Vs. 2015 Civic Type R.
Ford announced that its 2016 Focus RS will boast an uprated version of the
turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder power unit to deliver "well
in excess" of 315 horsepower to all four
wheels. Compared to the EcoBoost in
the Mustang, the Focus RS
will feature a new low-inertia twin-scroll turbocharger as well as a bigger Intercooler.
The cylinder head has also been revised and the cast iron cylinder liners
are made stronger as well. As a result, Ford says the Focus RS will deliver
a "free-revving top end" significantly greater than the EcoBoostMustang's 6,800 rpm red line.
The brand-new all-wheel-drive system for the Focus RS includes a
torque-vectoring system with twin electronically controlled clutch packs
that control the rear drive. Up to 70 percent of the power can be
distributed to the rear axle. Yaw control sends torque to the outer wheels
during turn-in to reduce understeer and sustain more than 1g of lateral
acceleration. In fact, Ford announced that there is also a special "drift
mode" that can actively delivers a controlled oversteer at the track.
In order to accommodate the improved performance that the new AWD system
provides, Ford has updated the chassis of the Focus RS by giving it firmer
springs, bushings, and anti-roll bars. Exterior aero add-ons including a
restylized front bumper and a functional rear diffuser work hard to reduce
lift and increase downforce. Ford also reached out to Michelin to design
tires specifically for the new car.
However, the new all-wheel-drive hardware translates to extra weight. A
standard Ford Focus ST weighs just over 3,200 lbs. Expect the Focus RS to
weigh a little closer to 3,300. To avoid ending the Focus RS discussion on
a low note, we bring some good news: despite all the dramatic changes, rest
assured that the new Focus RS will exclusively offer a six-speed manual
gearbox. What's more, Ford will finally deliver the Focus RS to the U.S.
market sometime next year.
At first glance, the 2015 Honda Civic Type R looks far more aggressive than
the Focus RS. Aggressive fender flares make room for a set of 19-inch alloy
wheels. A low front splitter puts more downforce to the front wheels while
a functional front-fender vent eliminates lift. A functional rear diffuser
and an enormous rear wing complete the "time-attack" look. The typical
Honda haters will call the new Civic Type R "ricer," but then again that's
On paper, the front-wheel-drive Honda Civic Type R is a more conservative
approach to the hot hatch formula. That said, this is the most radical
Civic Type R yet: powered by a turbocharged (a first for the Civic) 2.0-liter
VTEC engine that develops 306 horsepower (310PS) at 6,500
rpm and 295 lb.-ft. of torque at 2,500 rpm. Unlike the VTEC engines in the
Type R sports cars of the past, the new Civic Type R possesses a relatively
low redline at 7,000 rpm. According to Honda, the new Civic Type R will be
capable of launching from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in just 5.7 seconds and will
continuing accelerating onwards to a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h).
Pound for pound, the 306 horsepowerturbocharged VTEC engine in the Civic Type R
should be no match for the 315+ horsepower that is promised
by the 2.3-liter EcoBoost in the
Focus RS. However, you cannot argue with results: a prototype version of
the brand-new 2015 Civic Type R completed a lap of the Nurburgring in
7:50.63, effectively breaking the record for the quickest time by a
front-wheel-drive car on the legendary track. While the AWD Focus RS has
yet to post a time on the German circuit, it is worth noting that the Civic
Type R's unreal Nurburgring lap time is quicker than the record set by the
renowned AWD Japanese supercar R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R back in 1999.
In order to tackle a track as tricky as the Nurburgring, it is obvious that
the new 2015 Civic Type R is more than just its engine. Four-piston Brembo
front brakes that grab hold to 13.8-inch rotors to make sure the Civic Type
R stops as well as it goes.
The new Honda also offers high-end performance hardware including an
adjustable dampers system that features four modes. At "+R," the Civic Type
R not only sets the dampers to its stiffest setting, but also tightens the
steering and quickens the throttle response. Honda has also developed a
Dual Axis Strut Front Suspension, similar to the Ford RevoKnuckle, to tame
torque steer. The rear suspension also features an H-section torsion beam
for improved rigidity.
Unfortunately, the Civic Type R has gone with an electronically assisted
steering setup, a system that is often criticized for offering less feel
than the hydraulic assist in older models.
