  1. Mazdaspeed 3

The perfect example of an overpowered and brutal front wheel hot hatch is the legendary Mazdaspeed 3. They introduced it in 2007, and it was powered by a 2.3-liter four cylinder delivering 263 HP. And that was considered a crazy number of horsepower to send to the front wheels.

However, despite severe torque steer, the Mazdaspeed 3 was a capable and rapid car. It even brought many customers back to the dealerships. Also, it reintroduced Mazda as one of the prime affordable performance brands on the U.S. market at that time.

In Conclusion

These 20 hot hatches prove you can have power, good looks and affordability, too. Did you find your favorite on this list? Indeed, the car world has embraced the hot hatch and is waiting for the next generation to arrive at car dealerships everywhere.
