2013 BMW M135i vs 2017 Golf GTI Performance Mk7.5 - which one deserves the term Hot Hatch in modern days?

2013 BMW M135i vs 2017 Golf GTI Performance Mk7.5 - which one deserves the term Hot Hatch in modern days?

Back in 1975 the Golf GTI defined the all-new Hot Hatch class and (in modern words) also the sleeper class. 40 years later the Golf VII gets ready to defend the throne.

And there is the contender: 2013 Chris Harris named the BMW M135 “the bargain of the century” and “some kind of a baby supercar”. That should translate into Ultimate Hot Hatch - isnt’t it?
