Civic Killer

Discussion in '1991 Nissan R90CP' started by 84 Rotary, Aug 10, 2002.

  1. In the pass two comparison test the Protege has been in in Car and Driver magazine it has won hands down; one test with the previous model(beat 10 others cars including the Civic) and one with the new MP3. It is obvious that the Protege is a lot better car than the Honda Civic. It looks 10 times better, is faster, and brakes better than any Civic. The new type R will be faster though, but who cares because it looks like a minivan! And if MPS is serious about the Protege it will probably get more than 150hp.

    i hope for mazda's sake in the sport concept car market, you are right about the hp.
     
  3. Re: Civic Killer

    This car is screeming to be AWD!!! They have to make this AWD! Take the AWD from the old 323 or the Ford Focus. its the same engine!<!-- Signature -->

    yo, i hate to burst your bubble... but civics have the aftermarket support, and they have more horses. a Civic Si has 160 hp. 10 more. now granted these are non dyno tests so they can be complete BS. but anyways. yeah, you can call it a civic killer... im not gonna stop you. im just gonna laugh when you see Si printed on the back of a civic as it passes you up

    good looking , period.<!-- Signature -->
     
  8. Re: Civic Killer

    It is a good bang for the buck car..with good handling and stopping power..with only 150bhp..at least 180bhp would be fine.<!-- Signature -->
     
  9. Re: Civic Killer

    I'm not a crazy Civic Fan but I have to give it it's credit here. There's not a lot of same-class cars that can beat it in performance. Take the new Protege5 for example, the thing does 0-60 in 10 seconds. If you ask me, that's not that fast. I'm not sure if I would want to pull up to a Civic SiR or maybe even an Si for that matter, at a red light in an MPS or MP3...but who knows.<!-- Signature -->
     
  10. Re: Civic Killer

    Between this and a civic it will come down to the driver, plus this car handles better thant he civic. Also mazda is planning a 180hp version.
     
  11. Re: Civic Killer

    this mazda really rocks! But my version of it is still better!<!-- Signature -->

    Civic killer it is not, but it'll grab a sizable chunk of honda's market share. I don't think it has the oomp to lay down a butt-whoopin on a civic si or anything with a b18 strapped in it but it probably handles as well as a honda and surely looks pretty decent too. The almost electron blue pearl paint job is a good start for this "civic mimicker"...
     
  13. Re: Civic Killer

    Can't match with the "Type R" Civic.
     
  14. Re: Civic Killer

    hey, i am the proud owner of a protege ES it originally has 122hp and weighs a good 2800lbs. it nows around 140hp and i had to do nothing to the handeling (because it handels like a freak'n dream)...anyway i have already beat countless civic's (including SI's) civic's all about talk and no walk. Their just over-hyped P.O.S's........
    sorry, but you have to realize the truth!

    The ES is a beautiful car. But everyone knows the Civic isn't the hardest to beat. Heck, I've killed 3 Civics and a Jetta with a 93 Hyundai Scoupe! However, i've gotten my hands on my mom's 2001 protege LX 2.0 and managed to beat out an '01 Acura RSX type S. Admittedly, it was an automatic. The protege is a manual. Not too shabby for 130 horses, eh?
     
  17. Re: Civic Killer

    Not too shabby at all.

    yeah... civic killer my ass... check out the old civic type R...
    1.6 DOHC VTEC 185hp @ 8200rpm (B16B engine) its the same engine as the one americans get with 160hp (B16A2 engine) but improved...
    it goes from 0 to 100km/h in 6.6 seg. Thank you very much.

    there is a perfect competitor for this civics, also 1.6L DOHC non turbo. it is called the Mitsubishi Mirage Cyborg, using a 1.6L DOHC "MIVEC", that's equivalent to Honda's VTEC. Check it out.

    http://www.j-garage.com/mitsubishi/mirage/5410.htm

    I personally think these two would kill this mazda... this mazda has got good looks and enough torque but no way... it sounds like the old Nissan Sentra SE R with the 2.0L DOHC 140hp...

    And what do you think about this Vs. the old Integra Type R??? its still a smaller engine (1.8L), that's the one I've got. An integra is just a bigger coupe civic. and the type R really really kicks ass, there is no naturally aspirated 4 cylinder engine, except the S2000 that can beat it, and by the way, it beats MANY MANY turbocharged machines...

    So dont panic civic fans... Just dont mess with mazda Rotary engines...
