Good value discreet hot hatch which nobody knows about

I wanted a 5 door with around 180 bhp to replace original Seat leon 20V turbo,and without big wheels and hard ride. The 1.6 Turbo in the old model astra has not sold well , I think because few people know it existed, it is too discreet for the boy racers, and the insurance groups are unjustifiably high compared with the 1.8, but it fitted my needs. 16 inch wheels, same performance as Leon,38/39 mpg regularly,decent seats, properly spaced pedals,and good value at less than 10k at year old 7k miles. No problems thus far.
