2. Volkswagen Golf:
The Golf is one of our favorite cars and one of the most famous of hatchbacks. With a stout structure, the ride always feels solid and controlled. Its supple chassis and responsive steering make it a true pleasure to drive. A 170-hp 1.8-liter turbo four pairs with a standard five-speed manual; a six-speed automatic is optional. This car can accelerate from 0-100km/h in less than 5 seconds.
