The best equivalent I find is "canon" because it is not especially sexual and is of the same 'language politeness level'. I mean that it's not particularly slang but you wouldn't hear it in any formal context. It is an adjective : Scarlet Johanson est canon. Or a noun, by the way Smoking hot could be : Keira Knightley est un super canon. I ...

"Bandante", "Baisable" are disrepectfull for women. You can't (and shoudln't) say it to her face without taking a slap. It's related to fuck (baisable = fuckable). The slang the most use by my generation (18-30 yo) is "Bonne". It still keep a bit of disrespect but you can use it among friends without being the redneck of the group. "Bonne" comes from "bonne ...

Canon comes to mind, although probably more used by 30+ y/o generations than younger people. Cette fille / ce mec est carrément canon In "today's" language, hot would be somewhere between charmant/e/ (cute-ish, not rude but may convey sexual / flirty allusion) and bonne (used for women only, more disrespectful, can be viewed as sexist). I can't think ...

The nearest I can think of is bandant(e): Elle est si bandante que je la mettrais bien dans mon lit ce soir. No direct relationship to heat in bandante, but a direct reference to the male organ in erection. Baisable is another possibility (from baiser ("fuck") ).

Le terme (L')achat précoce est peut-être plutôt pour réserver un produit ou service en avance pour assurer de l’avoir quand on veut, mais on peut aussi en profiter pour avoir les tarifs plus abordables.
