Sport Compact Car Comparison Part 3
So we just finished round two of this comparison test of the racetrack. Now we are out right here on public road for round three on this eight car automobile sporting car test. It is out here where each editor will assess the vehicle’s ride, handling, steering, power train, brakes and overall interior comfort.
So out here at the public road course—well the Dodge Caliber and the mini club men are being exposed as the weaker links to the group. Both posses really stiff suspensions and the Dodge especially showing too exhibit little too much body roll and too much sliding movement. At here the Silver a 265 horsepower flat four engine at so much mid-range torque, it can really even third to fourth gear making it totally effortless to drive to the twisty bends, where as in this blue Cobalt SS has really athletic chassis that allows you attack the curves and it doesn’t beat you up at all.
So after three rounds of exhausted testing including instrument testing, hot lapping at the race track and the evaluation on public roads, the winner of our eight car. Think for your comparison test is the 2009 Volkswagen GTI.
The GTI wins our bank for the comparison test simply because it was the best all around the cars here. It is not the quickest and dragster or at the track, it is not the least expensive or the most powerful. But, thanks to a mighty two-liter turbo and sleek DST transmission, it was one of the most enjoyable cars to drive on the street and it is still a treat of the track. Plus it offers some attractive, rich and ergonomic material wrapped in a handsome very useful package. That is why the GTI reigns as the best when it comes to banging—
