Which modern hot hatch is the truest to what the hot hatch is and why is it the Abarth?
>What is a "Hot Hatch"?
A Hot Hatch is a manufacturer produced, performance oriented variant of a standard hatchback, designed for improved handling, increased top speed, acceleration and generally enhance the driving experience.
>Are all Hot Hatches FWD?
No. Whilst most Hot Hatches are FWD, some are AWD or even RWD.
>Isn't FWD shit?
No. Just because you can't get the arse out by stamping on the accelerator doesn't mean you can't have fun.
>Aren't Hot Hatches just for Europoors?
No; with the launch of the Fiesta and Focus ST to joining the MS3 and Abarth in the US, it seems like the Hot Hatch is beginning to take off on the other side of the Atlantic, but Europoors definitely have more choice.
>Is the Fiesta ST actually good?
The Fiesta ST is one of the best small hot hatches on offer at the minute; so yeah they're pretty good.

I'm considering buying an BMW diesel instead of a petrol one.
From what I understood, diesels are more fuel efficient, have no spark plugs you'd have to maintain and are ecologically better (Kek as if I'd give a shit about that), while petrol cars have faster acceleration and get along better with cold.
Did I get that right? Are there other reasons pro and con and are there special things only applying to BMWs?
Pic related is an E34 525tds, I'm also having a closer look at the E38 725tds and am interested in E36 diesel models aswell, are they worth it? Are they maybe underpowered?
