The best hatch ever is surely the Megane R26R but its not on your list  


31 January 2018
How can the Clio 200 Cup (Mk3), Megane R26R or Honda Civic Type-r (ep3) not even be on the list! Obviously it's entirely opinion based but what a load of rubbish your list is, not to mention the order of merit. Shame on you!

    The Insignia GSi is Vauxhall's new performance flagship. Can this diesel estate version offer both pace and practicality?
  • Honda Civic Type R
    First Drive
    19 February 2018
    It’s a warm welcome to this steaming hot hatch. But is it too fiery for Britain’s roads?
  • Aston Martin DB11 Volante
    The DB11 Volante chassis' torsional rigidity is 22kN/deg, down from 34kN/deg on the coupe – but substantially more than the 14.7kN/deg of the DB9 Volante

    The DB11 Volante is the first convertible variant of Aston Martin's new model generation. How does it compare to the likes of the new Ferrari Portofino?
