Looks like the 2010 Paris Motor Show will be seeing plenty of debuts to kick off the auto show circuit this year.

A couple of contenders will include the all-new Ford Focus ST and Opel's GTC hatch. Both are fantastic, new vehicles for the manufacturers and continue showing where the industry is headed in terms of design. The only real question that remains is "will the US get a taste of the Opel in form of another Buick or GM product?"

Regardless of the answer, we want to know:

Who's it going to be? The Focus ST or Opel GTC hatch and WHY?

With both the Ford Focus ST and Opel GTC set to debut in Paris, the hot hatch world is astir. If you're in a "global" market and interested in going fast on the cheap, these are looking to be two serious contenders.

The big difference here is shaping to be extra output in a traditionally showy hot-hatch package, or a sleek and sophisticated ride with potentially less power. But first, a joke: what would a diesel Ford Focus ST be called? Think about it...
