The trimSee full equipment
The Competizione is a serious bit of kit with 17in Corsa alloy wheels, 4-piston Brembo brake calipers, drilled and ventilated brake discs, all-round Koni dampers, a Record Monza exhaust, Sabelt racing seats, leather and Alcantara interior highlights and rear parking sensors.

The top of the range is the Competizione model, which features a 178bhp version of the 1.4 T-Jet engine. The 0-62mph sprint takes just 6.7sec, and while it can feel like you're waiting for the turbo to kick in at times, the engine pulls strongly once it's into its stride.
The Up GTI is the best budget hot hatch you can buy
The Suzuki Swift Sport is well equipped and fun to drive, but...
Impressive point-to-point pace, confidence inspiring dynamics...
Enjoyable hot hatch but pricey and not in the Honda...
