Peugeot 208 GTI
Price: £18,895 on-the-road.
A front wheel drive Peugeot has come above a rear wheel drive Toyota. Who'd have thought it, huh?
Hot hatches for more than twenty years have been true drivers cars. Rear wheel drive nuts might argue otherwise but unless you're tracking your car or drifting, a front wheel drive hatch will corner just as fast and will go harder in a straight line.
The Peugeot 208 GTI is the second best new hot hatch money can buy today. It will complete a 0 - 62 mph dash in just 6.8 seconds thanks to its excellent 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine that develops 197 bhp and 203 lb /ft of torque, and it handles extremely well, with the cornering ability of a house fly.
