2010 VW GTI: Which Hot Hatch Would You Buy?
August 18, 2010
Alright, pretend you're ready to buy a new hot hatchback. Maybe you have a spouse/partner with another car, but either way your hot hatch is going to be your daily driver. Your choices (pre-selected by me), each with a listed base price, are:
Volkswagen GTI (two-door; four-door is about $600 more) -- $23,690
Mazdaspeed 3 -- $23,340
Mini Cooper S -- $22,300
Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback Ralliart -- $27,590
Subaru Impreza WRX -- $25,495
Which one would you buy?
