Britain’s oldest car magazine Autocar recently asked its readers to vote for the greatest hot hatchback of all time. The Brits really are the best people to judge hot hatches, as they kinda invented it in the first place! So when they say that the Lancia Delta Integrale is the best of them all ever, it must be quite something! In this survey, Peugeot 205 GTi 1.6 came second followed by Ford Focus RS and Golf GTI Mk1.
Lancia Delta Integrale Is The Greatest Hot Hatch Ever!,
Chas Hallett, editor of Autocar said “It’s no surprise Autocar readers have voted for the Lancia, when launched back in the 80’s it very quickly acquired a large and enthusiastic fan base founded on its rally success. Interestingly, it is the oldest car in the Top 10 – proving age is no barrier to desire.”
“The closeness of the voting didn’t surprise me either,” Hallett went on. “Voting for a greatest hot hatchback is clearly a very personal choice. Even here at Autocar, we can’t agree – which is why we’ve written about so many of them in this week’s magazine!”
