The market is pretty much saturated with compact hot hatchbacks, as almost all major automakers have at least one offering.
But which one is better overall? Unless consumers favor a specific brand, that’s a very tough one indeed to answer, as each car has its strong and weak points.
CarWow has come up with a three-part test that should make some light, only their selection misses out on one of the all-time favorites, the Volkswagen Golf GTI. But that’s okay, because we’re still left with the other five contenders.
The first test included a drag race from a standing start, which saw the Renault Megane RS pull out in no time, but for some reason, couldn’t keep its advantage.
Finally, all five hot hatches were subjected to a brake test from 70 mph (113 km/h), which had a clear winner and a clear loser.
We won’t tell you which car won two of the three tests, as that’s what the following video is for, so you might want to scroll down and hit play.
