The new 204bhp Citroen DS3 Racing battles hot hatch rivals from Renaultsport, Mini, Vauxhall and VW

Citroen DS3 Racing v hot hatch rivals video

The Citroen DS3 Racing is the firm's long awaited return to the hot hatchback class. With its 1.6-litre turbocharged engine producing 204bhp, and lashings of carbonfibre inside and out, it's also Citroen's hottest and most striking assault on the hot hatch establishment yet.

But can it topple key foes in the shape of the Renaultsport Clio 200 Cup and Mini John Cooper Works, as well as alternative choices in the shape of the old-school Vauxhall Corsa VXR and twin-clutch gearbox-equipped Volkswagen Polo GTI?

A group test on the best roads southern Wales has to offer will decide. See evo's Chris Harris drive them and come up with his decision, before reading the full road test, with comprehensive performance figures and a huge picture gallery, in evo 154, on sale Wednesday February 2.
