Video: Honda Civic Type R vs VW Golf R – hot hatch battle

We put two of the world’s best hot hatches to the test; the Honda Civic Type R and the Volkswagen Golf R

The new Honda Civic Type R is one of the world’s best, and most exciting, hot hatchbacks. But, then, so is the Volkswagen Golf R.

The Honda has a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine driving the front wheels. It’s fun, it’s agile, it’s wild to look at and thrilling to drive.

The Volkswagen Golf R gives, we think it’s fair to say, a more mature driving experience. It has four-wheel drive, more understated looks and slips into your life like a favourite pair of slippers.

But which is the best hot hatchback; the better driver’s car? Join Dan Prosser and Matt Prior on some great roads as they find out.
