Yes I know these are two very different beasts, but that's why I ask the question, which would you have in your everyday life? Anyway the comparison becomes less far fetched when you learn that just £745 separates them.

Everyone knows that the Fiesta ST is the best hot hatch money can buy, yes the 208 GTi comes close, and the Polo GTI is probably a better all rounder, but nothing can beat the Fiesta for out right fun.

Alternatively, for the same money you could also get the best executive hatch money can buy, £23,070 gets you in to Mercedes ownership, which is a pretty big deal for some people.

The only problem with the Mercedes is the 64hp power deficit, and while the base spec is rather generous, it's lacking the sporty looks of the fiesta.

But which car would you rather have, the joy of owning a hot hatch or the additional layer of opulence that comes with Mercedes ownership?

Vote bellow and tell us why in the comments!
