The Top Three Budget Performance Cars

A large percentage of motorists dream of owning a performance car and enjoying the thrilling driving experience, yet, many never look into purchasing one as they believe that it will be too expensive. Whilst it is true that performance cars can come with a hefty price-tag, there are still budget models on the market which offer a super experience behind the wheel at a fraction of the cost.

Here are the 3 best budget performance automobiles to consider:

1. Ford Fiesta ST

The highly anticipated Fiesta ST has taken the world by storm and has been universally praised by critics. Some claim it is the greatest hatchback of all time and this is due to the fact that it scores highly in all areas. It provides an exhilarating driving experience, terrific handling, cool styling, and it is fantastic value for money. Due to its small dimensions, the Fiesta is practical too and will appeal to many different types of motorists.

The Fiesta is capable of top speeds of 139 mph and achieves a 0-62 mph sprint time in 6.9 seconds. This may not be the quickest, but it packs quite a punch, and you could also easily upgrade to 212 bhp. This cuts the sprint time by half a second and provides more torque in the mid-range.

2. Porsche Boxster

The hugely popular Boxster is a cheap way to own a Porsche. Despite its low price-tag, the Boxster has the famous good looks and a driving experience to match. It is now in its third generation with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine for a blistering performance and 0-62 mph speed of just 5.1 seconds. Whilst this will appeal to many, those on a tight budget may want to look for older generations which can be an absolute steal. Places like Unbeatablecar will be a good place to start.

3. Renault sport Clio 200

Sometimes, good things come in small packages and this is certainly true of the Renault sport Clio 200. This very affordable performance car provides a thrilling driving experience with unbreakable grip, responsive handling and a front-wheel-drive chassis. The newest generation is capable of 0-62 mph in just 6.7 seconds. Its small size ensures that it is a practical car with all the fun attributes of a high-performance vehicle.

It is one of the best hot hatches on the market and a great choice for any motorist who has a need for speed but still requires the practicality of a compact car.

You do not need to break the bank to drive a performance vehicle and the above are the three best budget options.
