Review

So far we’ve only driven the eHybrid plug-in, which is a very fine plug-in hybrid to drive but a very mediocre hot hatchback. So, until the regular petrol versions arrive, we’d suggest you look at the Honda Civic Type R if you want a great hot hatchback, or the Volkswagen Golf GTI if you want something softer-edged but still fun.

We're still waiting for trim details to be released.
