Picking among three of the most compelling hot hatchbacks in the segment can get a little tricky, even for well-heeled individuals who know their way around these cars. Fortunately, the fine folks over at Carfection are here to give us a little helping hand. In this episode, they lined up an American pocket rocket in the form of the Ford Fiesta ST, a French performance savant disguised as the Renault Clio RS 220 Trophy, and a retro-styled British maven that we’ve come to know as the Mini John Cooper Works. The objective? See which of these three hot hatches are worth your time, and more importantly, your money.
