The M135i is not comparable to these cars.
You are right, not totally fair this comparison but it is also a hatch available in 3 or 5 doors, manual or auto and even rwd or awd and more interestingly it is not that much more expensive than some of those rivals. Since the Audi RS3 can not be bought new anymore, for the moment it is the undisputable king of the hatch world. I just would like to see a more purposeful review putting it against a STI hatch on a track.
