10 Speedy Six-Cylinder Cars From a Variety of Price Ranges

Rapid acceleration was once associated with big V8s and, to a degree, it still is. However, cars with fewer than eight cylinders can also be amazingly quick. Here, we look for cars with six-cylinder engines that deliver the kind of thrust that can become addictive.

The fastest six-cylinder cars are expensive. Prices start at $64,000 and can exceed $190,000. These will not be daily drivers for the average family.

Fortunately, there are six-cylinder cars that deliver rapid acceleration and cost less than $50,000. Two of the following vehicles have a sticker price of less than $30,000.

The first five vehicles that follow can be considered performance sixes for the masses. The next five are six-cylinder rockets for buyers with deep pockets.

Turbocharging, supercharging, and even a hybrid drivetrain are represented in these two groups, but cars with eight pistons are not. If you think this limit on cylinders will adversely affect performance, think again.
