These Great Performers Come With Reasonable Prices

If your budget is unlimited, it’s easy to find a car with loads of horsepower and the ability to launch from zero to highway speed in a few seconds. Most of us, though, need to check the price tag when deciding on which performance car to buy or lease.

We’ve put together a list of 2019 vehicles that give you an excellent blend of performance, handling, and fun-to-drive attitude without emptying your bank account. The list includes not only cheap sports cars, but also several sporty sedans, hatchbacks, electric vehicles, and even a pickup and an SUV. They may not have the fastest top speed or quickest acceleration, but they offer an appealing balance of power and price. Note that our vehicle scores sometimes change as new information becomes available, so the scores on these pages may differ from those you see on the individual review pages.

Now it’s time to put the pedal to the metal and see some of the fastest performers for the buck on the following pages.
