What's the best hyper-hot-hatchback?

1w ago


It’s that time of the week again where I attempt to enliven the misery of your Monday mornings in the form of a battle. Before we get there however, we must look at the results from last week...

After receiving nearly 4000 votes, the people have decided that the Nissan Skyline GTR is the greatest Japanese performance car of all time. And yes, I voted for the NSX - because it’s fantastic.

In this week’s battle, I’ll be asking you guys to decide what the best hyper-hatch of the moment is. The nominations are: the Volkswagen Golf R, the Renault Megane RS 300 Trophy, the Honda Civic Type R, the BMW M140i, the Ford Focus RS, the Mercedes A45 AMG, and the Audi RS3 Sportback. There’s also a “something else” option just in case I haven’t included your favourite - but don’t leave without letting me know what it is.

Votes will be valid between now and next Monday the 3rd of December when the winner will be announced. Be sure to cast your vote below, and if you should feel inclined, add a cheeky little comment, too.

  • The Focus RS is the best hot-hatchback, that’s why I bought one. But it’s still not good enough. The engine should be more powerful, the weight should be lighter. Sadly, the next generation of Focus RS would be a hybrid, probably the manual transmission would be gone forever.
