If you are asked to think of an italian dreamcar you usually think of a Ferrari or Lamborghini. Maybe you’re a fan of italian cars so that you consider a Maserati or Alfa Romeo as the car of yor dreams. But I bet that the name DeTomaso wouldn’t be on the list.
One of the biggest concerns about buying a new car is the fear of buying bad quality. A fear of false investment, of being tricked by the industry and of course a fear of having to pay a lot more money than expected after the purchase is already done.

Hot hatchbacks are a the perfect solution for people who are looking for a sportscar experience at a reasonable price tag, or people who want to combine practicality with performance. Altogether they are always a good deal and my personal favorite type of cars. But one thing that not many people know is that the idea isn’t new.
