    coupe costs a lil more, but is better looking (imo), alot have leather and 17inch allys as standard
    the 1.8's are 8.5 0 to 60 which isnt slow at all (wait for the turbo lads/lassed to wade in)
    the coupe imo looks more of a classy motor than the hatch aswell (also imo - dnt shout at me hatch drivers lol)

    If you're looking for the performance side of things, a 1.8 probably isn't where to start. However we all have budgets sooooo...

    The coupe & hatch have the same performance stats, so go for the one which looks better in your opinion. Everyone on here will say go for the shape they own, but that's their opinion.

    only one person can make you decide and its you, both same on performance just looks different, but as said most coupes will be much better speced than a hatch

    id actualy go for the hatch if i was you.

    far to many people buying coupes now imo.

    and id love to see a hatch with the same sort of styling as my coupe. think it'd look 100 times better
