PostSubject: ES5 vs Other Similar Range Cars   Fri Oct 20 2006, 14:39

As requested by Rookie, here's a more technical thread.

Which car do you think will be potentially a good competitor VS ES in terms of performance

I have listed a few, maybe you guys can add on. Anything 1.6litres and below please.

ES Rivals

1)Suzuki Swift Sports (No need to say 123hp@6800rpm vs 110hp ES, our ES torque is higher if I'm not wrong, Swift Sport 148Nm/4800rpm)

2)VIOS (It's HP is not higher, but the Power-to-weight-ratio is much better)

3)Getz 1.6
(It's HP is not higher, but the Power-to-weight-ratio is much better)

maybe we can talk about performance for those driving manuals. but i think mostly autos... by the time i got my es5, that's all that were left.

if want performance, just step harder on the gas. but i think the sweet bit should be the handling. haven't driven the altis but the corolla was scary -- floaty at 100kph, steering disconnected. engine sounded like crap... it was a whirr, like some electric shavers.

the soluna sounded better, and revved more eagerly also. so strange. i did ride in a 1.8 altis in thailand, a taxi: quiet and fast. if u can take the ah pek looks.

and so the es scores another point for looks: one of the prettier civics, if not the prettiest. eg has nice curves, but have u looked in the interior? horrid.

all v opinionated of course, my apologies if i insulted anyone's ride. none are perfect, and it takes a sage to see some beauty in everything.... confucius say one.

eg 10 years ago was a beauty compared to the cars of the same year of manufacture, be it in or out

No need to theorise lor....


Just arrange for a Sepang run... I mean drive up at speed limit into Sepang track...

We can book the whole track for ES Civics ONLY, and invite the Malaysian Team ES to join us...

and whoever you think you want to 'challenge' and have a go around a safe and fun environment. Auto vs Auto, manual vs manual, blown vs blown, NA vs NA...

And once and for all put all these 'I think I think' and theoritically should be like this, like that... and paper value power out - and replace with track results...

dun have to drive to the limit of the car... just drive to the limit of the driver enough leow... the strengths and weaknesses of the cars will be apparant enough.

We put in thousands of dollars of mods into our cars to make it look and go fierce... let's put our money where our mouth is... and go validate our cars!


Next Open track day if you dare to mix it up in the OPEN category is in January 2007. Else you let me know when you have enough cars going up we 'pao ' Sepang Track for 5 hours from say 1pm to 6pm... enough to play till shiok leow...


who will take up the challenge? this is not a 'race challenge' just a go there and play challenge... any takers???

no need to go up sepang so far lah. there is a private drag track at gelang patah. but the rental is quite ex, if i'm not wrong, 3k to rent the track for half day. but if devide by many cars, let's say 50 cars, about 60 bucks.

there are some cars near to the perfect, if u got a perfect bank account with perfect number in. u can custom anything u want, make the car be perfect to you. if u dun like a car have doors, just build a car without door, if u dun like a car with wheels, use chain.
u got to compromise sometimes in this real world. nothing is perfect.

I've come to realise that the straight line sprints are not the best test of the 1.6 litre NA car. or any other car for that matter.

It's how the car handles OVERALL. on the straight, in various degrees of curves.

Just going straight will test how fast the car can attain & maintain a high speed if the straight road is long enough. in the 1.6 litre class, once you hit the revs, the other car if same 1.6 litre NA on same size tyres cannot pull away from you... (nor can you catch up) so it's all in the 1st 3 gears and how the car makes the rpm climb.

on a straight, that's all there is... but you can argue that if straight makes power faster, curves and exit from curve shud be same ... yup. shud be... depending on your entry speed... and where are you in that corner...

That is why in a multi-corner 5 km track, the real car emerges... which car/driver is better...

If you are just interested in paper/straight roads, den of course, who has more money put into the car (in the correct places of course), wins...


Agreed with sf, that this Civic is one of the nicest, if not THE nicest of the Civics, (imho - including the latest FD)

That is before the arrival of the CTR of course... that one hands down is the champion beauty of the Civics...
