Two of the hottest compact performance cars available today are Hyundai's Kona N and Toyota's GR Corolla, and we've pitted them against one another in our latest comparison test. One is a high-riding urban runabout and the other an econo hatch, but the modifications made to them should put some much pricier performance cars on notice.

The Acura Integra Type S goes on sale in June and Acura has provided pricing information. The car is quite a bit more expensive than its corporate cousin, the Honda Civic Type R, but it comes with additional premium touches and slightly more horsepower.

Subaru has been spotted testing what appears to be a hotter version of the WRX. While the automaker has ruled out an STI version of its compact performance sedan, we may see a tamer version along the lines of Subaru's “tuned by STI” line.

You'll find these stories and more in today's car news, right here at Motor Authority.
