What alternatives should I consider to a used Audi RS3 hatchback?
The BMW M140i is a staggeringly good hot hatch. Its performance is blisteringly quick, and its engine sounds great. The infotainment system is great, too, and the driving position ace. Its rear-wheel drive, so its handling is pure old-fashioned fun.
The Honda Civic Type R is quite brilliant, too. It handles brilliantly, yet is surprisingly comfortable and easy to live with. It’s an incredibly well-engineered machine that’s practical and enjoyable to drive.
