1999 Citroen Saxo VTR 1.6 8v petrol
The Saxo VTR is the definitive hot hatch
The rear brake discs had to be replaced after a few thousand miles due to very bad "scoring", but that is the only problem I have had.
People who have reviewed the Saxo VTR say it is tinny, noisy, uncomfortable and not very well built, they have a point. But they seem to forget that the people who are going to buy this car don't care about a few creature comforts, we are bothered about the fantastic handling and an engine that loves to rev. The Saxo VTR is the best hot hatch in its league and indeed a lot better than some higher priced models I could mention.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Suppose you have driven all the cars you have mentioned? and of course you would no which cars are better than which just by driving them. and as a matter of fact according to statistics, the VTR is quicker than a couple of cars you listed, which I am not going to mention to avoid further argument.

O and, what are you chatting when you say the engine cuts out above 6000? Have you ever actually owned a VTR?
