Forte Koup SX vs Scion Tc vs Mazdaspeed3/Regular 3

Obviously the Speed 3 wins out on power, speed, but loses on price, i was just curious what anyone else thought about the other two cars

Re: Forte Koup SX vs Scion Tc vs Mazdaspeed3/Regular 3

I think the Scion TC is still pretty ugly

The Kia Koup Sx is small inside. Has no headroom but is sure nice looking, very very nice looking with good power and price. But I felt claustophic in it.

So the winner is the Mazda3. And no I am not being biased here

I agree the Koupe is a really nice car but the interior is a bit small espicially since I am 6'2". I have and will always like the 3, I have a sedan and love the shape and size. Also the hatchback 3 is by far the best looking hatch on the market.

i believe the scion FR-s (FT-86) would be around the same price range when they comeout

Yeah, i figured going from any sedan or hatchback to a coupe is gonna be a big change in room. The Koup certainly has a good look to it, and i can never decide if the TC looks good being square or just became a piece of Toyota sheetmetal

I have a 3 sedan as well and even tho the backseat is small I like having room to move around when i am driving. There certainly is no comparision to the 3 hatch when it comes to the Lancer sportback and the Koup 5 door which are just a joke

I had no idea what you were talking about when you wrote this, so I googled it and its interesting, that concept car certainly is good looking even tho its a rear wheel in comparision to these, but i bet you cudnt touch it for under 40k but i might be wrong,

I just saw scion TC vs mazdaspeed3 so might as well put this in the mix



estimated price on this might be 25-30k almost comparable to a speed 3

Yeah, after googling the Ft86 and the Fr-S oth are nice as hell and hopefully they get them to the US early in 2012, im interested to see the base price for both as they both do actually say thy shud be below 30k. That will be an interesting addition to the Mazdaspeed competition 5 door versus any new sport coupes coming out. I guess it will depend what you are looking for i like the Fr-s design even though its not done, but you cant really beat the put out of the Speed3 engine even with its size
