Torque (Singapore) - - HONDA CIVIC TURBO 1.5 VS SKODA OCTAVIA 1.0 RENAULT -

Re­nault’s tur­bocharged 1.2-litre 4-cylin­der with 130hp and 205Nm has some low-end turbo lag, but rel­a­tively strong midrange per­for­mance.

Me­gane’s 7-speed du­al­clutch isn’t as re­spon­sive as the Oc­tavia’s, but its man­ual over­ride func­tion is the only one whose -/+ points are in the “cor­rect” ori­en­ta­tion.
