3. Civic Type R:
This may be a bit of a stretch since the next hot hatch isn’t on sale in the US, but dang it’s going to be a beast. There’s no official word on when Honda will bring the Civic Type R over, but it’s a car that’s worth waiting for. Unlike other modern Hondas, the Type R is engineered to be fun on and off the track. The hot hatch can even beat proper sports cars around a track, which is no easy feat. The Type R’s turbocharged 2.0-liter puts out 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Unlike the other aforementioned hatchbacks, the Type R puts its power down through the front wheels. Trust us, this thing will be a monster and it’s worth waiting for.
