The hot hatch is a genre that, in the early 1990s, very nearly went for a Burton. Victims of their own success and desirability, these speedy shopping trolleys were almost hunted to extinction by thieves and insurance companies, leaving us with watered-down wet lettuces like the Clio RSi, the god-awful Fiesta Si and the 306 XSi.

The 306 GTi-6 was one of the cars that brought the hot hatch back from the brink. "It's fanciful and unrealistic to keep looking for the 205 GTi's successor, but the 306 GTi-6 is as near as anyone has got so far," said Autocar back in late 1996, and in some senses it was right.


I'm telling you now, I wouldn't even rise to it with a snobby post these days (I'm about to contradict myself here), but 3-ish years ago, when I was off my Ford's and bumming my first french machine (306 gti-6 don't you know) I would of stuck my nose up high and looked down upon all of thee in DISGUST! :wack:

Thankfully I'm not as much as a prick as I was then (up for discussion!) but thought it was worth a post up for comment if anyone gives a damn.

Now where is my high horse smiley...

The point of the fiesta si was to be insurable but still keeping sporty after the xr2i and rs turbo pushed insurance right up. I think it did it perfect, cheapest pleasing 1.6 to insure.

SOTW is basically the best cars you can get for under £1k.

To note, the Peugeot GTi-6 and the Ford Puma have both been SOTW twice. :thumbsup:
