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 this regard as the earlier one, but it’s still a likeable thing, and there are plenty of older cars still available. You’ll also get plenty of standard equipment, and of course it’s still a hoot to drive and relatively cheap to run.

The Volkswagen Golf GTI is the go-to hot hatch for many, and deservedly. It’s fast and capable, yet also refined and easy to drive. It’s also got a roomy (being bigger than the Fiesta) and classy interior.
