European hot hatch shootout

Which sporty small car would you choose from the list in the poll? if any, I think I would choose the 'Seat Leon CupraR' because in my opinion this car has a mixture of good looks and stunning performance characteristics, although all the cars here are powerfull ones, I just think that you really get your moneys worth from the Seat!

i too would have to pick the seat leon cupra r. I'm not a huge hatchback enthusiast, but if i had to choose, i think this one is probably the best combination of looks and performance of the group

I am also goign with the Seat Leon CupraR. I really like how the car looks and it has pretty great performance also. Although I hear it is not teh best handling car on tight turns. Cliffy, why didn't you put an R32 in there?

I was going to put the R32 in there, as well as the Audi A3 with the same engine, I just desided against it in the end because I felt that both of these cars are in a different legue, mainly due to having 6cylinder engines, but also because they are larger cars...although having said that, the Leon aint the smallest hatch in the world

Question any one for a V70 T5R

Well, I know there cop cars and yes a volvo, but the whole point of having a hot hatch is so that you can live with the car. Is there anything else out there that you can fit more of your worldly belongings into and race a 911 off the line?
