3. BMW M135i
£402 deposit, £2486 per month, 48 months, 8000 miles per year
Okay, so this may have four-wheel drive and a turbocharged four-pot, not the rear-wheel drive and stunning straight six of the old M140i, but it’s still great fun to drive and decently quick. You’ll enjoy a strong engine, a great driving position and a nicely balanced chassis.

4. Honda Civic Type R
£436 deposit, £2616 per month, 24 months, 8000 miles per year
The long-time king of the class, the Civic Type R absolutely nails the hot hatch brief. It is fast, handles brilliantly and yet is surprisingly comfortable and easy to live with. It’s sweetly balanced right up to its very high cornering limits. Spacious, too.
