Fun hatchback or estate

I currently have a Renaultsport Clio 200, but unfortunately I will have to sell due to my new company's policy of insisting on cars with a minimum of four doors. I have a bike so a boot is mandatory, but wanted to replace the car with a five-door hatchback or an estate, but ideally something which is and fun. I had thought of an A4 Avant 1.8 TFSI Quattro or a Golf GTI five-door, but didn't want to spend so much as my second car is a 911 (weekend use only!), which is already an indulgence. I note the Audi has such strong residuals, so I will probably not be able to get a good deal on a nearly new one.
