Auto Trader Verdict:
With its boorish looks and bombastic exhaust note, the RS isn’t one of those hot hatches that slips under the radar. However, that’s no bad thing. Shake off your inhibitions, and you’ll be treating yourself to one of the most engaging and exhilarating hot hatches ever brought to market. Outrageously fast and phenomenally fleet-of-foot, the RS is exceptional in almost every respect. That includes the price, which, given the levels of performance, would seem cheap at twice the money.
