    The difference between them will be tiny, unless your planning on stripping it out, and upping power for track days its not worth worring about. Just test drive both and see which you prefer, or which ever you think looks better.

    Check Parkers out, will give you the weight of cars, stats, emission levels, tax bands etc.

    Indeed depends on personal preference I like 3-door hatch more.

    the hatch would be marginally quicker 0-60 due to weighing about 75kg less.

    Generally speaking, looking at the cars on 'trader, the coupes are better spec'd.

    My choice?.... the hatch with the prodrive body kit...
