Re: Hot Hatches, NOT sold here =( (FourthGenHatch)

heh, Proton Satrias are actually rebadged, old Mitsubishi Mirage hatchbacks. The Mirage hatchbacks from Japan are pretty nice though... high revving MIVEC four-bangers and a much sweeter suspension than anything we got under a Mirage in the US. Of course, there's that orange "Colt" show car whipped up for the Essen motor show with the Evo drivetrain. The Mirages are a better example of Mitsubishi hot hatch skills than the FTO, which belongs in a class with cars like the Celica and Silvia. Sure it's a hatch, but it's really more of a hatchback coupe than a straight up hatchback.
BTW did you mean 147 GTA instead of 156 GTA?
Some others you missed... the Focus RS, old Escort Cosworth, Mazda Familia GTR, Toyota Corolla FX-GT, Honda CRX SiR, Honda Civic Type-R, Nissan Pulsar VZ-R N1...

Re: Hot Hatches, NOT sold here =( (LuxNova)

This thing almost has a certain VW/Audi look to it. In the headlights grill work anyway.
Fiat Stilo

There was another thread saying that the current Eclipse is the best selling generation and the top seller in its class. I guess not everyone want a car that is fun to drive.

Nope, the license plate says 147 but it's a 156. And I know I didn't get ALL of the hot hatches, I didn't have all night to compile names and pictures for an "ultimate" topic database. That's what other members are for.

The Integra/RSX is a hatch, but not the king.

The license plate says 147 because it is a 147. The 156 is a sedan.

Damnit! You can get these in Mexico (as well as the new Mondeo!) but not here, a few miles north! I'd love to mod up a new Fiesta!
