Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Ford Fiesta ST hatchback?

The Suzuki Swift Sport has made a name for itself as a small bundle of fun. The latest version isn’t quite as successful in that regard as the earlier one, but it’s still a likeable thing, and there are plenty of older cars available. You’ll also get plenty of standard equipment, and it’s a hoot to drive and relatively cheap to run.

The Volkswagen Golf GTI is the go-to hot hatch for many, and deservedly so. It’s fast and capable, yet also refined and easy to drive. The interior is classy and roomier the Fiesta's.
