Top Ten Hot Hatches


The Hot Hatch list has been home to the Focus RS for aeons .. with its shock demise in 2018 here is what we at WHF consider to be the young contenders.

But ..Fear not Focus Fans, Ford will be bringing the RS brand back (hopefully next year) bigger and better!

#1 VW Golf R

Fit for the race track! This is the most fast and powerful Golf produced to date. Dynamic design gives it the good looks to rival the more expensive sport cars on the market.

#2 Mercedes A35

Attractive entry level performance car and the most affordable AMG to date. Geared toward the younger generation of hot hatch enthusiasts.

#3 Audi RS3

Audi are no longer the prim and proper marque with this sassy speed machine. Power sent to all four wheels producing an exciting drive.

#4 Honda Civic Type R

Described by the makers as ‘absolute power, raw and soul stirring’ – with its 2.0-litre VTEC TURBO engine its a force to be reckoned with.

#5 Hyundai I30 N

Hyundai’s debut in the hot hatch market place is an unexpected entry in our top ten. This is attracting both young and older drivers alike.

#6 Ford Fiesta ST

Fast and Furious and now jam packed with additional features which deliver optimal handling whether you’re driving on the motorway or enjoying a day on the track.

#7 VW Golf GTI

Still a firm favourite and hot hatch legend – still packs a punch and challenges the new comers with its effortless style, attraction and driveability.

#8 Seat Leon Cupra

Cheap and Cheerful!! Excuse me … this is pacey, powerful and practical, with a very attractive price tag. One to consider if wings and spoilers aren’t your thing.

#9 Renault Megane RS 280

Forty years of passion for motorsports have been built into the RS 280. Oozing performance and efficiency for  adrenaline fans.

#10 BMW M2 Competition

Creeping in at number ten, this newbie from BMW gives a thrilling ride for those of us who like living on the edge.
