Best used hot hatch?

I’m in Portugal, on the island of Madeira, renting a new Audi A3 and I have to say, it’s great. Granted a diesel but the feel, size, steering are really exceptional. It’s a 6 speed manual and just a great car to carve these awesome island roads. Makes me want to add a hot hatch to my stable. Any recommendations? Golf R? R32? focus RS? What do you recommend? Just having a blast with the A3. Used budget $25k

Definitely Golf R is fun. My brother just traded his 2015 S3 in for a 2018 S3. The Focus RS is also great but I think the interior is a bit of a letdown.

Golf R, or GTI if the R is out of the budget.

I’m curious to try the new veloster or i30n. Lots of glowing reviews on that car.

GTI all the way. They're pretty cheap when new too.

Do you have a year or mileage requirement? Look at a 2015 Mercedes GLA45 AMG.

BMW i3. Cheap as chips for a used one, RWD, rear-motor, carbon fiber tub/body. Oh, and it's a BMW.....

For 25k, youre not gonna be able to get an RS. For fun get a fiesta or focus st for around 15k, for less fun but better daily driving get a gti, R or 128/135 bmw hatch for closer to 25k.
