Hot Hatch ECU Tuning

Hot hatchbacks have been around since the ’80s with cars such as Ford’s XR2, XR3i & RS Escorts, Peugeot’s 205,Vauxhall’s Astra & Nova GTE’s and VW’s Polo’s & Golf GTi etc with hobbies being formed and fond memories being made by enthusiastic owners modifying and tweaking their vehicles trying to tempt that last bit of performance to show itself. Hot Hatches have generally been based on the smaller and lighter family oriented models with the addition of having uprated engines, sporty exhausts, lowered and uprated suspension, beefed up brakes, sports styling, nicer alloy wheels and wider tyres to help transfer that added power to the road. Fast forward 30+ years and Hot Hatchbacks are generally better and extremely popular among young drivers because they are fun to drive. Nowadays there’s more manufacturers selling Hot Hatch versions of their range and there’s a huge choice for buyers to consider, with updated models from Seat, Skoda, Honda, Renault, Peugeot, Vauxhall, VW, BMW, Suzuki, and of course not forgetting those iconic Fords. 

One thing that hasn’t changed over time though is that owners are still as enthusiastic as ever to enhance the performance of their ride. One the best solutions to add extra torque & power,  along with better throttle response and driveability of your Hot Hatch is to have your vehicle tuned with a performance remap from Essex-Remaps.

Below is a just sample of modern Hot Hatches that we can tune for Enhanced Performance, with prices from just £199.99 including an independently underwritten insurance backed guarantee for your peace of mind.
