What an age of affordable performance we now live in! There are so many fantastic cars for hoons on a budget these days, it's hard to know which one to pick.

The Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ/Toyota GT86 is certainly one of our favorites. But the Ford Fiesta ST looks to be a potent contender in that segment as well, even if it does things very differently from the Toyobaru.

So the folks at Evo magazine put this reigning champion and the promising newcomer to the test on a track in order to see which one comes out on top.

I won't spoil things and say which one wins, but I don't think you could be considered a loser for picking either of these cars, or the Fiesta's big brother the Focus ST.

Which would you pick?
