Top Gear's ultimate hot hatch test...
….featuring the ultimate driver. But which car will prevail?
Posted: 22 May 2013
Of course, you don't actually buy the 22k Focus, because you want some tasty bits. So what we have here, once trim levels have been selected, option packs added, satnav, Bluetooth and bigger wheel boxes ticked, is actually a £28,315 Focus. It's also the only car here that costs less than 30 grand. Wonder at the £30,095 Astra! Marvel at the £30,415 Megane! Be unsurprised at the £31,795 Golf-that's-not-an-R!
