Favourite Hatchback

Just to bring back some life into these forums, what do you think is your favourite hatchback and why ?? Is it the legendary Golf GTi, SVT Focus, Civic Si, A3, Seat Leon (for those who get it), Alfa 147 . . .

Just mention your favourite hatchback as long as its "stock". And by that I mean not modified out of the factory. Factory mods on cars like SVT Focus and M Coupe are considered "stock".

i like the first generation Golf GTI the most because of four reasons: first; my dad owned one and it was really fun to ride in on bumpy roads, second because of it's looks, third; because it essentially invented the sport-hatchback, and forth; of course, because i love volkswagon, and

volkswagon rules!

The only one available to Canadians that I might pick as the best is the Golf R32 (Coming soon!). Other than that, I'd definately have to go with a Seat/MG/Alfa Romeo hot hatch

My choice would be the Honda Civic Type-R with its 2.0 i-vtec engine sprinting from 0-100 kmh in 6.6 secs.

My god, it does not always have to be a Benz, please, use your imagination for once. This by the way to me is a coupe and not a hatchback, the difference being that a coupe compromises on the rear seat head and leg room, while a hatchback does not.

I'd have to go with the Golf R32 ...looks real nice and performs even nicer.

Second choice would be for the Civic SiR another competent car ....just gotta get past its "way too big" headlights.

Later

How about the 206 Gti 180 with 180 bhp & 17" alloy wheels?
It is just fascinating.

Well, I am of an older generation, I like the hatches that were still pure and not compromised by 100's of kilo's extra due to confort stuff and safety measures. AX GTI < 700 kg's, 105-110 BHP
