Hatchbacks are Hot. No, Really.

Not since the VW Rabbit arrived have hatches generated so much buzz.

Wednesday, August 01, 2012


Back in 1983, the VW Rabbit GTI hit U.S. shores and showed that a small, boxy underdog—with a four-cylinder engine—could run circles around gas-guzzling muscle cars like the Trans-Am. But over the next 30 years Americans just didn't buy into the European "hot hatch." That's about to change. These explosive and stylish next-generation models offer maximum fun in a minimal package.

Audi TT RS

The first luxury entrant in the hot-hatch market, the $57,725 TT RS accelerates faster than Audi's $114,200 R8, so start scouring dealer lots and eBay Motors now for this rare commodity.
