Top Gear's ultimate hot hatch test...
….featuring the ultimate driver. But which car will prevail?
Posted: 22 May 2013
RenaultSport knows its audience. Has done for years. This experience means no hot hatch drives better - it's a blast from start to finish, a hardcore charger that's refined enough to live with. And has yellow seatbelts. Then there's the Focus: such value (easy on the spec), such everyday ability, so good-natured. But the ST's secret, the reason it wins this test, is about fun. It's not as naturally talented as the Megane, but it's the best at getting the party started. And that's what matters.
