    corolla RSi 5 speed from 1997 with a 1.6L engine with 115kw does 0-100 in 7.71 seconds and yet this 2.0L car with 15more kw and 180nm of torque takes 7.72 seconds. just goes to show how fast the corolla RSi actually is!

    I own a 2004 model and I love every minute of it. Even in GP it pulls like a train, screaming and bellowing all at once to 7 200 r/min like any good NA motor should. It does run with some decent machinery and in the bends the grip is fantastic. Provoke it correctly, though, and there’s lift-off oversteer to indulge in and the chassis control to make the most of it too. My main gripe is that the steering wheel is not adjustable for reach, compromising my driving position somewhat. Parting with my little smile machine one day will be a very difficult decision indeed.

    Sorry to break your heart Keith, but the 180 will actually do 0-100 in 6.9.

      yes 0-60mph in 6.9s ( thats 96kmph, then to goto 100kmph it will have to change gear hence lost time). look at the road test as tested in the scans above 0-100kmph in 7.72s, the corolla RSi still keeps up with it on the 1km sprint, doing 28.7 vs 28.55. not bad for a 1587cc with no lsd!
