Fast diesels or fast hatches? Both check the box for family man practicality and bachelor status bro levels. But which one gets your juices going?

While being possibly as far away as possible in the automotive market I think the two share more in common than most people initially think. At least in the audience they appeal to. Maybe growing up surrounded by STIs and big power Cummins' skewed my view, but whenever I found myself mentally building the perfect daily driver I rarely look elsewhere.

Which one does it for you though? Do you prefer massive torque or tight cornering? Smoke shows or sticky launches? Loud cars or louder trucks? Boost or even more boost?
