Best hot hatchbacks

It’s already an expensive car as it is, coming in at a smidge under £40,000, but adding a wealth of driver aids, performance packs and a rather tasty looking grey paint finish means that you can have a hot hatch that will drain your wallet faster than the A 45’s 4.2-second 0-62mph time. So along with currently having the title of the fastest hot hatch on sale, the A45 can be made one of the most expensive, too.

Our crazy car configurator builds:
