Starlet was the third pic I posted, albeit the older model. The Glanza you posted, the JDM version, makes 133 BHP which in itself is impressive for a small car with a 1.3 engine. They can make 300 BHP and beyond with some mods and that is insane when you factor in the power to weight ratio. 

Car number 5 on my list is truely impressive. Nissan Sunny/Pulsar GTi-R. SR20DET engine putting out 227 BHP in standard form through an AWD system. That will match any of the modern stuff VW is putting out

Some of the hatchbacks are really fun to drive, had a brief history of teaching a friend on how to do cops style 180-degree turn in one of the Russian country and end up having fun with his car for hours.

Black 206 was my small cold hatch(not a hot hatch with 1.4 engine). With manual gear and nice suspension it was fun enough for curved mountain roads.

This one also served me well. It was full option very nice car for its time.

My very first car. Always a fun to drive and never let me down. Only the brakes had the tendency of overheating. I wonder who's fault that was :)

Looking cool was it 1.9 or 1.6?
