Suzuki Swift Sport Hybrid test drive

Hybrid or not, the Suzuki Swift Sport remains huge fun to drive. But a hefty price hike means it's not as easy to recommend as it once was.

Abarth 595

The Abarth 595 is a car you buy with heart rather than head, with practical shortcomings and a high price, but it's great fun to drive.

Abarth 595 Esseesse test drive

As something to give you a bit of a laugh, the Abarth 595 Esseesse is a compelling thing. If we’re honest though, it’s a bit rubbish as a serious hot hatch.

Honda Civic Type R

The Honda Civic Type R has received outstanding media reviews and it's currently the top-ranked hot hatch on our Expert Rating index.

Cupra Ateca

The Cupra Ateca has received generally good media reviews, which have praised its impressive performance and unique proposition in the marketplace.

Audi A1 S line Competition test drive

The go-faster Audi A1 S line Competition is an appealing hot-hatch prospect – if you can stomach the £25,000 price tag.

Mini Clubman John Cooper Works test drive

The Mini Clubman John Cooper Works is a unique proposition — a small family car with estate-like looks, genuine character and hot hatch performance.

Renault Mégane RS

The Renault Mégane RS has received very good media reviews, with the 300hp models generally receiving better ratings than the 280hp model.

Mercedes-AMG A 35

Mercedes-AMG A35 test drive

The Mercedes-AMG A35 is a fantastic bit of kit. It looks smart, has an excellent interior, and has the performance to take on the best hot hatches.
