We British citizens love a hot hatchback, and with the UK being one of the largest markets for manufacturers to tap into, there have been some crackers to choose from over the years.
The best thing about the humble hot hatch selling so well is the sheer number of second hand cars that are available to buy at any given time. So, what is the best hot hatch you can buy when you set a reasonable budget of £10,000?
Using our own formula below we have managed to determine which hot hatches provide the best blend of performance, practicality and running costs. You can't argue with science after all.
Top Speed (MPH) + Power (BHP) + Combined Economy (MPG) + Boot Capacity (Litres) ÷ 0.62 mph Time (Secs) = Hot Hatch Score (HHS)
