An all-wheel-drive system means it has no problem getting its power to the ground.

But it's a great looking car, and more importantly a great driving one.

The RS starts at around $36,000 and doesn't go up from there, so you can get a very well-equipped car for well under $40,000.

It is Ford's hottest hatch ever, and perhaps the hottest hatch on the planet.

With a 350 horsepower, 2.3-liter turbocharged engine it has plenty of power.

Although 19 mpg in the city means it's going to be a little expensive to run.

Plus, it's a hatchback, so no worries about practicality.

And those 19-inch wheels mean ride quality is less than optimal.
