Top Gear's ultimate hot hatch test...
….featuring the ultimate driver. But which car will prevail?
Posted: 22 May 2013
But it's not like any of these cars aren't up for the fight. Take the Astra. Yes, with its brief bonnet and gorgeously crafted style lines you might think it's now too pretty to be a hot hatch. The 20in wheels (included in the same £995 package as the additional bodykit bits) say otherwise. Just be warned that VXRs on lesser wheels do look rather anaemic.
