remove the wing and I'd love it

yes please
remove the wing and I'd love it
uhh... what's this slow piece of shit doing in the competition...and WHY THE FUCK DID IT WIN THE COMPETITION?!

Wait, so the Acura won because its engine revs the highest and because it's an Acura? What the fuck is Car and Driver smoking?! Those are freaking riceboy reasons! How much money did Acura bribe them with?!

#2, From what I read, it won because it was the best feel for driving for city terrains. Story wasn't about who was fastest, if it where just take the Subaru and be done with it.

#3, The title "Cheap Speed" tells me otherwise.

#5, I believe the intention should of been to find the fastest machine not the one who handles the best on city streets or have the best interior.

#6, Well, I guess when you start working as a writer for C&D you can make the article how you intend it.
As a writer, you follow your own intentions, with in reason of the editor.
To me the artice was going for an all around car that meets a certain aspect of criteria (under $25000, over 200HP) and is the best all around.
Course, C&D isn't really know for its good writers.

On a side note, I'd go for the WRX.
Fuck the FWD.

#8, Just a difference of opinion, I believe the fastest car should of won. They even said it themselves:

"Here we go again. That same old comparo conundrum. Our underdog victor offers the worst 0-to-60 time (6.4 seconds), the slowest quarter-mile time (14.9 seconds), the skimpiest back seat, and the most lackluster autocross lap."

my top choice overall would be the wrx, but i can see why the acura won...going from a neon or chevy into one would surely change anybody's mind, even if it's not the quickest...the neon is nice too, though

the cobalt has the WORST wing of the bunch, it looks almost like the melty aftermarket ones, but at least you can get one wingless

oh and the acura WAS the slowest one, but then again, ptobably not by much...it was as much of cheap speed as any other car

and the way i see it, "cheep speed" doesnt mean the fastest car of the bunch, but just an overall balanced car that is easy to drive , is high quality and still offers a good kick in the pants...voila...acura
