If you're into hot hatches, you might want to tune into this weekend's Top Gear episode, the first of the season 20. In it, the guys will try to answer one very important question: Which is the best car from the new roster of hot superminis?
We're talking about the Clio IV RS, the Ford Fiesta ST and the Peugeot 208 GTi. All three have 1.6-liter engines with turbochargers and send their power to the front wheels. All three are based on superminis and all three could take up to 5 adults in a pinch.

The Clio is technically the fastest in a straight line with 0 to 100 km/h in 6.7 seconds. That's because it has a double-clutch gearbox and launch control.

The Guys at Top gear will surely say they like the Ford Fiesta ST more because it's cheaper and it has a manual gearbox, while also being more engaging than the Peugeot. Our answer to that is: yes, it's cheaper… in Britain!

Double-clutch gearbox, complicated electronics, lots of interior extras and some seriously cool bodywork – of course the Clio RS is more expensive.
