The Cupra R does 60 in less than 7 seconds so it aint slow, and even the Cupra 180 does it around 7.5 so that aint slow for a STANDARD car. Was your CHAV ecotec standard or was the cupra driver just playing with you lmao . How can anyone say that a car with brembo 4 pots does not brake well? It probably stops on it's nose even the cupra stops very well, it has ABS,EBD, and ESP to help as well.lenbeach said:I've not driven an R but had a go in a 180bhp Cupra and was thoroughly disappointed with its performance. I just couldn't get it to go. I also had a dabble with one in my old Chav Ecotec and he was no quicker.
The R would obviously be quicker but can't see it being that much of a leap for 45bhp. Brakes were good though.
