2018 Volkswagen GTI

$24,995
One of the cheapest cars on our list today



Coming in with a sale price of only $24,995.

It is capable of going from 0-60 mph in 5.8 seconds due to its turbocharged 2.0L 4 cylinder motor that creates just over 200 horsepower.

2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata

$28,315
One of those sports cars that has always been a little slow, but when they revived the Miata, they also gave it a kick under the hood.



Now, it features a 2.0L 4-cylinder that creates 155 horsepower, which is a decent amount of power for such a small car.

2017 Kia Optima SX Turbo

$29,940
We know that Kia is not known for speed or high prices, but the SX Turbo has more power than your average Kia.



It comes with a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder that gives 245 horsepower to the wheels, which is nothing to sneeze at.

2008 Dodge Charger SRT8

$47,445
It takes us back to the most powerful cars in their price class. It has the same Hemi V8 as the SRT 392



but the Charger has a little extra weight and two extra doors.

This 4 door Dodge is capable of going from 0-60 mph in only 4.4 seconds, which is pretty impressive for such a heavy car.

2011 Mercedes SLK

$44,000
It comes with a turbo 4-cylinder that gives the SLK 201 horsepower.



While that may not be a lot, the SLK is very small and lightweight and can utilize all of that power.

Scion FRS

Currently known as the Toyota 86, the Scion FR-S has been wildly popular ever since it came out, with its very sporty design and affordable price.



It is easy to see why these are getting so much buzz.

These cars all come with a 2.0L 4-cylinder that pushes 200 horsepower, which is just enough power to allow it to go from 0-60 mph in only 6.4 seconds.

2019 Volvo S60 R-Design

$44,000.
The R-Design has a mighty turbocharged 3.0L V6 that gives it a staggering 325 horsepower.



Volvo has really been re-inventing their image lately. Maybe they got tired of everyone saying their cars were so slow, which they were. But now, the new S60 R-Design has changed all of that.

2008 Subaru Forester XT

$29,195
The Subaru Forester is a top-rated family-friendly SUV that is also perfect for the weekend warrior.



The Forester XT is just for those who want that little bit of extra power, and it comes with a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder that creates 250 horsepower that allows it to go from 0-60 mph in only 6.3 seconds.

2014 Chevy SS

$45,745,
It is a pretty exciting car. It is basically a Chevy Malibu with a supercharged 6.2L V8 that cranks out 415 horsepower.



With that much power and enough room for the family, the SS is the family car for those of us that would not be caught dead in a minivan, or it can just be a sporty sedan that can hold its own on the road.

2021 Jaguar F-Pace

$50,000.
It is precisely what you would expect from a Jaguar SUV.



The F-Pace also comes with all the luxuries Jaguar is known for and can go from 0-60 mph in only 5.4 seconds.

It has a 3.0L V6 that cranks out 340 horsepower, which is very impressive for a crossover, especially such a roomy one. The F-Pace also has a sleek design that only Jaguar can pull off.
