What is a hot hatchback?

If you’ve never heard of the term hot hatch then chances are you’re not from the UK. A hatchback is a small car, sometimes called a supermini, which I characterized by a ‘hatch’ instead of a boot and an overall smallish chassis. Hatchbacks gained popularity in the UK due to their lower cost to purchase and increased economy from a smaller engine…however, many manufacturers always create a special edition for their hatchbacks with a supped up engine and a body kit. These special editions grew in popularity and began being affectionally known as ‘hot’ hatchbacks. In following infographic developed by team "All Car Leasing" there are best 10 of these listed - do they ring any bells?
  • Reliant Scimitar GTE
  • Lancia Delta HF Integrale
  • Renault 5 Turbo
  • MG Metro
  • Peugeot 205 GTi
  • Ford Fiesta XR2 MKII
  • Ford Escort RS Cosworth
  • Renault Clio Williams
  • Citroen Saxo VTS
  • Renault Clio V6 Renaultsport
Before EU regulations became stricter and before global warming became the huge issue it is today the above hatches ruled the roads and were a thrill to drive but just how many have survived the test of time. Let’s find out!
