If you’ve got $60,000 to spend on a hot hatch, you really need to have these two at the very top of your list.
They are the 2018 BMW M140i and the 2018 Volkswagen Golf R.

After you add an automatic gearbox to the Golf R for $2500, that figure creeps up to $55,990 (plus on-road costs) and after you add the Driver Assistance Package, to match the M140i, for an additional $1300, the price is $57,290 – just $2700 short of the M140i.
