A Fun Car Doesn’t Have to Come With a High Price Tag

The BMW 3 Series is one of the highest-rated luxury small cars in U.S. News & World Report’s rankings. And for good reason. It has nimble handling, strong fuel economy, and comes with a decent price tag of just over $33,000.

The 3 Series comes standard with a 180-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine. But if a strong performance at an attractive price is important to you, there are other cars that can deliver what you’re looking for less than the cost of a 3 Series.

The cars listed here offer strong engine choices, sharp handling, and great performance scores based on U.S. News & World Report's research.
