VW Up GTI. 113bhp, and from reviews of the preproduction prototype, a very well rounded car. It’s as quick as I’d need it to be, nicely equipped and neat looking. Reliability is my only real concern, but we’ll so how they fare once they’re in owners hands. The normal Up seems just fine reliability wise.

It’s out early 2018 and since I plan to keep the Twingo until it becomes high mileage enough that it’s costly to keep going, it should be past the questionable first year of production before I look at buying one. Finally someone making a proper little hot hatch that isn’t a Swift Sport (which I also like just not as much as this). Or the 500 which I don’t personally want to own, as cool as they look and sound.
