7 most “sensual” and cool cars at an affordable price

Thrill seekers for a little money should look at 7 small sports cars. They offer a large set of emotions and “sensual” attractiveness, and are much cheaper than large Porsche, Corvette or BMW.

1. Mazda Miata
For over 25 years, the Mazda MX-5 Miata has been a model of performance in the automotive world. This is a simple, affordable roadster that offers the driver very comfortable driving. The fourth generation of Miata is easier than its predecessors. Also, the model looks better than in previous years. This fastback with a targa roof was chosen as the Best Car Design of the Year in 2016. If the driver is satisfied with a car without rear seats or without a trunk, then there is no reason why not to buy a Miata.

2. Subaru BRZ
With a resourceful boxer 205-horsepower engine and cool performance for a low price, the Subaru BRZ is one of the coolest cars on the road. But I would like to see him more often on the road.

3. Ford Mustang EcoBoost
Five years ago, the idea of ​​a four-cylinder “muscle car” would have seemed like complete nonsense. But with the advent of the Ford Mustang EcoBoost, everything changed. Combined with a fully independent suspension, the new 4-cylinder turbocharged engine of 310 horsepower and 430 Nm of torque, works even better than the V6. And Mustang EcoBoost looks, as always, very cool.

4. Nissan 370Z
The seven-year-old model 370Z is already starting to show its age, and Nissan dealers have already lowered its price. If you forget for age, the current (and possibly the last) Nissan Z-Mobile offers a fantastic driving experience, sending the power of a 332-horsepower V6 to the rear wheels. In addition, he carries the Z-tradition, offering much more style than its price suggests.

5. Fiat 500 Abarth
Yes, the Fiat 500 is not a car for everyone. And yes, from zero to 100 km / h it accelerates in indecently long, almost seven seconds. This is not the fastest car in this list. But she is very funny for her money. Perhaps this little Fiat is the sexiest of inexpensive cars made in Italy.

6. Chevrolet Camaro LT
Interesting fact: 25 years ago, the best Camaro Z-28, with the largest 5.7-liter V8 engine, developed only 245 horsepower. And today the most economical version, the 4-cylinder turbocharged 2.0-liter engine produces as many as 275 horses. It has a new improved chassis, excellent handling and an attractive muscular body. This Camaro is one of the best sports cars, priced at less than 30 thousand dollars.

7. Volkswagen Golf GTI
A regular Volkswagen Golf is neither sexy nor a sports car. But the legendary GTI ($ 25,000) – almost certainly. Other “almost sports cars” (Subaru WRX, Ford Focus ST, Mitsubishi Evo X, etc.) try to look like racing cars, with their air vents, wings and spoilers. At this time, the performance of the GTI speaks for itself. He does not need to shout loudly, rather thin red strip on the grille, a small body kit, and the reputation of the car with excellent handling. This puts the Golf GTI on a par with cars 10 times more expensive. If this is not sexy, then we do not know what it means.
