Doesn't look too bad. Now all BMW needs to do is slap that hideous 5 m^2 grille on the front.
Silhouette looks nice... if it is ugly or not, depends how big is a jaw.
Without that grille.... looking from the Silhouette.... could be anything.... nothing distinctive or clearly BMW about it ☹️
Hey ,I've got an idea how about a little kink in the rear window just ahead of the c pillar , sounds good yeah ? Then youd know exactly what it was and no need for a huge fugly attention seeking grille . Just an idea like...
That’s only the Trophy R. Standard Trophy with 300bhp is definitely a hot hatch and should be on the list. 5 doors, back seats etc. Civic is the best but looks horrendous
Include UP GTI, but no Swift Sport?
In my unprofessional opinion the VW UP GTi is not a hot hatch.
Should the Renault even be on the list?
As far as I know a hot hatchback is a car which can be fun and practical.
How practical is a hatchback with two seats?
And a roll cage in their place.....
And a price tag which could buy you two of the other cars on the list (or more if you go for the extra carbon bits not included with the standard car)........
The Civic wins hands down, it’s faster on the track than the rest excluding the not a hatchback Renault, has a group winning boot size, has all the trick electronics you’d expect from a car in this group, a mechanical diff, just about zero torque steer and is an excellent road car to boot.
Top speed proven of 169-70 mph to if you can find somewhere to max it out.
Ok it has fake vents, not cool, but it actually stands out in a crowd which to most hot hatch drivers is the reason they buy a hot hatch.
If you want to remain invisible then don’t buy a hot hatch, from the original grand daddy of hot hatches Golf GTi or Lotus Talbot Sunbeam to today’s cars hot hatches should be visible and able to deliver what they show.
The civic has its haters and it’s lovers.
There’s one thing you can’t argue about though and that’s it’s ability to shame cars a lot more expensive on a track.
Myself I love the ott looks.
But then again I’ve owned cars with styling that shouts look at me all my life.
Imprezas, XR4i, Delta HF turbo, Opel manta GTE fastback, MK1 escort Mexico lookalike in Daytona yellow.....and more.
And an FK2 civic and now a FK8 civic Type R.
The looks of the car may be controversial but your not buying a bland box if you buy one.
If your someone who thinks the Mitsubishi EVO and the Impreza STi were fine looking cars your probably going to enjoy this one too.
If your tastes run to Q cars that hide away in a crowd then don’t buy it.
It’s that simple.
It just looks awful. Messy overall and no overall cohesion to the styling.
I’m sure it’s awesome but it hurts my eyes

Maserati's back with a bang - we've scooped the new mid-engined supercar that's due to be shown this summer and hit showrooms before the end of the year. Check out the full details of new Supersportiva ↘️ ... See moreSee less
Apparently it was supposed to be an Alfa Romeo model
Looks like a used Ferrari.
For some reason i recognized it was a Maserati without even reading the post.
Oh it looks like a... it looks like a....it looks like the artists impression that it is ....
Hence ‘generic Italian’...
The one you’ve waited for Squire Black
Looks suspiciously like a Alfa
Mohamed Tarek Ferrari awi fe nafsaha
Rear quarter off a 4C and the front off a Fezza - another parts bin special?
This looks like a smaller Rimac Concept One
Nicely done. I’m afraid badge engineering is the way forward to save some of these great names. Total waste of money to build something unique as it would be unaffordable for buyers or sold at a company-killing loss. It’s why we can expect a Ferrari SUV to look like a Maserati Levante or Alfa Stelvio. There will be differences in spec and performance but Maserati, Alfa Ferrari, Lancia, Fiat, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Peugeot, Citroen, Vauxhall, and Opel models could all be developed on common platforms to create competitively priced quality cars in just about every conceivable market and begin to compete with the likes of VW. Embrace the fact that they are all related and enjoy the return of Maserati to the sports car sector.
Was this meant to be the new Dino?
Nice Ferrari bro !
Definitely looks like an Alfa 4C with Maser badges. But imagine a proper V8 in something as tiny (albeit ridiculously wide) as the 4C, especially since the 4C has a mere 1,7 litre engine!
So Fiat-Chrysler Corp.decided to rebadge a Ferrari as a Masserati?🤔🤔
Ferrari 360 Modena circa 1999?
Similar intake as F430
i nearly thought it's a Ferrari until i saw the word maserati
It looks like if 488 and 8c had a kid with a mix of 12c in there
If Ferrari had sex with a McLaren using a Alpha Romeo lube.
Introducing Jaguar Land Rover's new Project Vector: a skunkworks team has built its vision for the autonomous, electric urban transport of tomorrow. A far cry from today's JLR saloons, coupes and SUVs - do you think the direction of travel is correct? ... See moreSee less
It won't be autonomous unless running in a very defined area. The great lie is that there will be autonomous cars running on ordinary roads when there is no such thing as artificial intelligence, only machine intelligence. In other words a glorified database. Seems a pointless direction for JLR but not Tata.
I think it's going to be the way we go if we are to sustain living on this planet! I just hope JLR can charge into giving that direction of travel and so benefit from it's stance.
Dont see why it can’t be used as a campus vehicle/ taxi for business parks, industrial estates, universities, parks, city centres, exhibition complexes, festivals, country estates etc... It’s just what Uber has been wanting all along.
I'll change to an autonomous car on the very same day world rally championship against human drivers is won by one of those.
Well if it's as reliable as their main models I wouldnt go near one .
For getting about in a city, short journeys and for those who dislike driving. All good.
I'm sorry. Would you please rephrase the question?
If I think back on almost every recent journey in London, Brighton and elsewhere - driving and being driven, I really doubt if autonomous vehicles could ever cope with the sheer randomness and unpredictability of other drivers, pedestrians, cyclists and so on. So no.
Software will never be able to cover the 6th sense you need for driving.
No. There is no such thing as workable AI, only machine intelligence and if you want to risk your life in a car driven by a database, good luck. However good these systems get, they can deal with situations in their program. They can't work out solutions to new problems. Humans can. That's why we have cars and apes are still hanging off trees!
Definitely not in a leaf. And still waiting for Rosie from the jettisons to become reality. 🤦♂️
I predict people will be driven by someone in a different country via 5G, because its cheaper than the massive computing power you need to be viable.
