Actually the ones you listed aren't really hot hatch. Just normal regular hatchbacks. Hot hatches are usually 6s century sprint or so.. like Golf R, Scirocco R kinda performance or at least GTI standard.

 

Nevertheless, other hatchbacks that fall into your criteria:

 

*Mercedes Benz A180/200

*Audi A1 Sportback

*Hyundai Veloster Turbo

Volvo has a hot hatch??? [confused]  [confused]  [confused] .

 

Maybe i'm too out of touch, my impression of Volvo is more for comfort, safety & stability.

For $140k, forget these warm hatches and get a used 2014/2015 Mk7 GTi. Dilemma solved immediately.

I like jcw but it too expensive so settled for a cooper s. the exhaust sound is not as aggressive as jcw.
