    New generation of hatches: What would you have?

    Well I did one for the previous generation (Leon MK1, Focus RS, etc.) so how about a poll for this generation:

    Again, I'll leave the astra out as most will probably pick that anyway. What's the best of the rest?

    Focus ST


    VW R32


    Audi S3


    Leon Cupra R (not out yet, but should look like this)


    Civic Type R


    Megane 225
    Nova Merit: 2000-2003 // Irmschered Astra SRi: 2003-2005 // Leon Cupra R: 2005 - 2006 // Linea Rossa Convertible Turbo: 2006-2008 // BMW 840Ci: 2008 - 2012

    Not driven any but my dad is getting a new R32 so I've gone for that. Looks like it's going to be lovely.

    Let's see....
    Ford - No, cos it's a Ford.
    Golf - Lovely, looks the part and from a good stable too.
    Audi - I'm loving that new shape, so far a toss up between this and the Golf
    Seat - too many doors for me! lol
    Honda - what an ugly mofo! Wouldnt be seen dead in it! Regardless of the whole V-Tech thing....
    Renault - PMSL! Nah, it's French, I've already owned FAR too many French cars!

    Gotta be the Goof I think, looks more purposeful and less company car like than the Audi - Not that I'd turn either down!

    seen my first R32 in a 3 door the other day and it looked miles better than the dull 5 door one in my local VW dealers

    also it was in the better blue colour as the 5 door one i seen was a dark blue and made it look like an every day golf

    not sure about this,
    not the st cos i know they no that fast now and its a ford so thats a no no,
    the type r is one ugly mother ********, so no again,
    the megane 225 is just as ugly so no to that too,
    so it leaves the audi, golf and leon!

    it would have to be a choice between the golf and the audi i think but at this point i'm not sure which.
    Astra GTE 16v C20LET, Astra TD, Corsa C, Corsa Combo TD.

    New shape A3 then, the S3 is just a better specced A3.

    Can't really say as I've driven none of them but from what I've seen/read - R32. They look so much nicer in the metal than in the pics I've seen and they have that V6 noise that makes me dribble.
