What alternatives should I consider to a used BMW M140i hatchback?

The Ford Focus RS has superb handling, strong performance and is amazingly good fun to drive. Countered against that, its ride is firm, its driving position is a little compromised and its steering has a rather limited lock, but such is the fun factor you’ll soon overlook all of those ailments.

The Honda Civic Type R handles brilliantly, goes like a rocket and looks like nothing else. It’s also surprisingly easy to live with, and if its infotainment system is as dreadful as the standard Civic’s that can once again be overlooked when you consider how much fun the rest of it is.
