2001-2002 Edmunds Sport Coupe Review
Let me start off by saying I liked the review overall and thought it was very informative. There was one aspect of it though that made me nuts, the review of the GTI. The specs of its 0-60 and 1/4 mile times are way off. All the reviews I read of this car showed an average of about a 0-60 time between 7.2-7.8 none of them as bad as edmunds 8.5. Also the quarter mile for that car is around 16 sec even under 16 sec not 16.5. This made a little bit upset since i love this car and think it one of the best pocket rockets out today.

And for those that have not yet read this review, here's a direct link to Edmunds' 2001-2002 Sport Coupe Comparison Test. Some of you may find it interesting that most of the vehicle in this review are also hatchbacks!

I would have pulled the Cougar and replaced the GTI with the Beetle, and called the category Small Front-Wheel Drive Sports Cars. Because that's what they are really trying to be.
As for the Cougar, what defines a sportscar engine? The biggest problem with the Cougars performance probably was the odd gearing.
Regarding Price, actually the RSX is not really much more expensive than a GTI if it is equipped similarly nor that much more than a fully equipped Celica GTS.
