VW’s hottest GTI yet takes on the class-leading hot Civic to find out which can be more fun around a circuit

Two questions today, then: which car is faster – and which car is more fun?

Or is it the current benchmark big hatch, the Honda Civic Type R, which brings more than 300bhp to the track via its front wheels.
