On Sunday night's Top Gear three of the latest 'hot hatches' were tested. Which would you choose?

Re: Top Gear Hot Hatch Test

There's no 'Other' option on this poll. Either choose one or walk home.

Re: Top Gear Hot Hatch Test

On the basis of which I could sell easiest....It would be the Golf.

..Then buy something I really wanted.

I've voted for the Megane, if there was no such thing as an Alfa that's what I would have bought 3 months ago. But once I'd had a test in a 147 the Megane suddenly felt slow, stodgy and incredibly dull. I didn't drive the 225 brake version though, I suspect that might be a bit more lively.

I really don't want none of them ... but if I would have to choose, I would choose that Golf as I don't fancy a much Vauxhall or Renault

Re: Top Gear Hot Hatch Test

I bet Clarkson would walk away from all 3 and get a 147GTA, I know I would - second hand of course - think those 3 are a bit cheaper but you get what you pay for!

Astras performance:cost is quite impressive though

3 Veloce’s..!

Re: Top Gear Hot Hatch Test

Pains me to say it, but it would have to be the Golf, the Megane looks awful at the back and with those silly lights under the bumper crap at the front.
That Astra seemed to redifine the word Understeer!, looked worse than the 147GTA when the switched of the TC

Mind you these Cars make a Twinspark 147 look expensive don't they.

Yes, I saw him walking away from those 3. That was when I started to run... for the GTA.

Not seen Top Gear yet. I'd best get home as the repeat is on in less than 40 minutes!

Nope.Id also go for an Astra VXR sport and tune it up to about 350bhp,add a bigger turbo and a chip etc.Fast car even in standard form though.

The Clio V6 has ceased production.That was a cracker of a car to drive.Alfa Romeo take note.A V6 with RWD is what we all want.

Nah,I'd have it over the others as it looks like good honest fun,whereas the Golf and Megane have rather iffy images.
The Vauxhaull is the only one I wouldn't feel horribly self conscious in when driving.

Especially the MkI was very dangerous when driven on the edge.
