  1. What about a Chevrolet Sonic RS? I'm extremely happy with mine, performs well enough and it's even cheaper than a Fiesta ST! None of these cars are fully blown track cars, very little owners of these cars are regularly going to screw up their cars on a race track on a regular basis. Why then should driving a car like a hooligan around a race track be a deciding factor?

  2. I'm absolutely blown away that these biased little fanboys didn't choose the FR-S as the top car, despite it being the slowest and weakest car of them all. Don't get me wrong, it has amazing handling and control I have no doubt… but that's if you can even get up to speed in it. I mean hell, my Saturn has more torque than the damn thing. In my eyes, GTI should've been up there, but again these guys are biased. doesn't matter though, a Hyundai Genesis coupe (which is within this price range) would shit on every last car in this line up

  3. Im happy with my 2015 base wrx, way better than my o8 wrx hatch as far as handling, quite a bit more understeer in the 08. It is kind of a rough ride and the gearbox is a lil notchy but i still dig it. Of course its funky looking, but i do t have to look at it when im driving it.

  5. So if you want a performance car in this price range you have to look at a manufacturer with a blue oval?

    I'm ok with that.

  6. their reasoning behind the top 3 was really just opinions….i mean complaining that the GTI and the focus (two of the fastest most refined cars in the competition) were too refined?? really?

  7. my only issue with this is that to get a WRX under $30,000 you have to get the base model with no upgrades. And with, say, the Fiesta you can get one fully loaded for $25,000. Not to mention the better fuel economy.
