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.
