I suppose the Cooper S doesn?t qualify as a hatchback in most peoples books cause its too small... but I?d take one MCS over all 5 of those together any day :D

Tend do walk the 40 meters from my bed to lecture.
I'd take the ST. According to an article I just read about the ST, 3 MPS and the S3, the ST was the best.

That's sort of impressive, at least against the Audi.

Not an easy choice. I love the ST, and the GTI. But I went for the Mazda 3. I've driven the standard, I thought it was a great little car. I totally disagree w/ Hammond - I thought for features, fun, and quality the normal one was head and shoulders better than comprable cheap little cars. I know the GTI is more well rounded - but I think the 3 is a lot better value.

I went with the Civic, although I admit I was thinking of the US version of the Civic which is more of a Coupe than a hatch.

Taking that into consideration I think I would go with the Mazda 3. I test drove one a few years ago and I loved it.

Tough choice. Golf or Type-R :think: I've always preferred European cars so I'll therefore take the Golf.

old Saab 9-3 coup?
Quite frankly I'd be happy with any of them. I couldn't decide.

In the end I just picked the one that was best-looking, since I figure none'd be particularly faster than the others. Honda Civic Type-R.

Though if it was any hatchback at all, I'd be straight onto a Renaultsport Clio 182 Trophy...

From the ones you said, the only one that I forgot was the Renault Megane RS. The others are either cheaper or more expensive.

About the reasonably priced hot hatches, we also forgot the Seat Altea and Leon FR.
