PostHeaderIcon Compact Hatchback Battle Royal – Finding The Best In A Six-Model Slugfest

Here’s the scenario – you want a car, but it has to be the right car. It’s gotta be practical and comfortable, but it can’t be a complete snooze-fest behind the wheel either. You don’t want a crossover, and a sedan isn’t gonna cut it. What you want is a hatchback, something with a little zest and personality, but something that won’t break the bank. Thankfully, there are plenty of options out there, but which to choose? To help you decide, we’ve gathered six of the top contenders and put them head-to-head in the following comparison article. Let’s get ready to rumble.

To keep it all apples-to-apples, each of the entries in our comparison comes packaged in a five-door body style, gets standard FWD, and is instilled with at least a hint of sportiness. Each is also tagged with an MSRP around the $20,000 mark. With criteria like that, we decided to include the Ford Focus ST, Honda Civic Hatchback, Hyundai Elantra GT, Mazda 3 Hatchback, Mini Cooper Hardtop Four-Door, and Volkswagen Golf GTI.

While all six of these hatchbacks are solid choices in their own right, the question remains – which is the best? Read on for our take.

PostHeaderIcon Next Volkswagen Golf GTI Could Deliver 300 HP

The Volkswagen Golf lineup is set for realignment at the top end of the performance spectrum, with new eighth-generation fast Golfs on the way, including a 300-horsepower Golf GTI, 350-horsepower Golf R and a new Golf RS variant with 400 horsepower. The next GTI will retain front-wheel-drive, while all-wheel-drive will be saved for the R and RS. We’ll likely get a preview of this new hierarchy when a production version of the 400-horsepower Golf R400, based on the current Golf, debuts later this year.

According to Automobile Magazine, the eighth-generation Golf is expected to arrive in 2019 and will be an evolution of the current car. It will be built on Volkswagen’s new MQB architecture (internally called MQB evo), with improvements focused primarily on drivetrain and electronics. The next Golf should be lighter too, with the new GTI weighing between 50 and 100 pounds less than current one.

The GTI’s new engine will be more or less the same EA888 2.0-liter four-cylinder from the current Golf R and mated to either a six-speed manual or optional dual-clutch automatic transmission. Other options will include bigger brakes, adaptive dampers and an electronic limited-slip differential (which it definitely needed to manage all that power going to the front wheels).

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen Golf GTI Dark Shine

A new one-off show car concept from Volkswagen has just dropped cover, and it boasts a sensational two-tone paint scheme, an ear-bleed-inducing 3,500-watt stereo system, and nearly 180 extra horsepower. It’s called the GTI Dark Shine, and it was put together over the course of nine months by a group of 17- to 25-year-olds taking part in a VW training program. Making its world debut at the 34th annual Worthersee enthusiast car show in southern Austria, the results speak for themselves.

“By working on the Worthersee GTI project, our apprentices learn about the complexity of automobile production,” says Dr. Stefan Kreher, Head of Volkswagen Vocational Training. “The project offers especially talented young people an opportunity to learn from experienced colleagues from the entire company at an early stage.”

The 13-member team worked with experts throughout the build, but planned and executed almost every step of the process on their own. An estimated 150,000 gearheads were in attendance at Worthersee, giving the young group a sizable audience to showcase their skills.

Read on to see what they did.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen GTI Supersport Vision Gran Turismo

Volkswagen has unleashed a new GTI ripe for digital hot lapping, and it’s got over 500 horsepower, AWD traction, oodles of carbon fiber, and enough wing to shame a jet fighter. It’s called the GTI Supersport, and it’s part of the Gran Turismo Vision project. For those of you who may be unaware, Vision is an invitation to every major automaker to produce the ultimate sports car for the GT6 gaming environment. As you can imagine, such carte-blanche freedom has spawned some truly insane creations, and now, this VW will join the party.

PlayStation 3 owners can download the car now to give it a couch test drive. VW says “The designers and engineers picked up on the legendary GTI DNA from a visual and technical standpoint,” adding, “… the unmistakably charismatic looks of the new ‘GTI Supersport Vision Gran Turismo’ in the digital rear-view mirror are likely to make the other contenders more than a little nervous.”

It all sounds good. But is this Vision worth your precious gaming time? Read on to find out.
