‘Murika I wouldn’t consider FWD cars as “sports cars.” AWD is a push in and of itself. I would see a traditional sports car as a RWD with 2 doors passenger doors. Sport and sporty are two different things. r l Lmao this guy is so Canadian is painful to listen! Aboooot! ??? DoctorFeelgoodMD Trump is worse and his 10 word vocabulary is pathetic. Rickers The answer is always Miata Dan Ilika *It’s Dan Ilika I totally get where you’re coming from, but you need to look past traditional definitions — especially in an era where sports cars are becoming anything but traditional. Oliver Wong I mean if you’re going to consider throwing the Civic Si on the list there along with the Focus ST I would consider going with the Hyundai Elantra Sport. Like you mentioned the last Si was just pathetic and the design was horrendous. Felix An Elantra on a sports cars list… you crazy bro. Felix Agreed. Anyone who says a Civic Type R isn’t a sports car, but a Genesis Coupe is… is crazy. Feodor Korchoun Stay mad Hillfag M.A.G.A jcd I find it somewhat amusing what people call a sports car these days. James Dan you’re very wrong, the Civic SI never was a sports car, the Mustang and Camaro are Pony cars / muscle cars now. The Fiesta, Focus and Golf GTI are not sports car, the WRX is a rally sedan. A sports car is front-engine rear-wheel-drive only. James Dan you are very wrong, the Honda Civic SI is a sporty economy car, the Fiesta Focus and Golf GTI are hatchbacks, the Camaro and Mustang are Pony cars / muscle cars and the WRX is a rally sedan. There are only two sports cars on this list, the BRZ and the MX-5. Sports cars by definition are front-engine rear-wheel-drive and two doors, they cannot be front-wheel-drive, 4 door or hatchback. sebastien foster this video is true shit Jonny_Vancouver lol Jonny_Vancouver Good list, thanks. Dan Ilika It looks to me like you’re describing a sports coupe, not necessarily a sports car. Sure, those prerequisites once existed, but the definition has changed so much as cars have evolved. Ryan Warnholtz Unless you’re taller than 6 feet… Not pro Israel Alternative facts? NewGuy I would add to that…a car that wasn’t designed from the ground up to be a sports car isn’t a true sports car. NewGuy I agree but…I think pony cars still count as sports cars. They’re just a different car than the BRZ/86/Miata where the focus is on low weight/handling. By the same token, I’d say that supercars are still sports cars. Cobranut James is correct,. ALL “Sports Cars” are Two door, rear wheel drive and mainly two seaters, but some may offer a 2+2 version. However, they may be mid-engine, and/or AWD. What they NEVER have are back doors or FWD. Cobranut Who called a Genesis a sports car? mac8175 Includes Honda Civic, leaves out Nissan 370Z….. Mick Though it’s technically under 30k it’s only by $3 Mick pfft my RSX_s turbo takes corners insanely. It has 235 tires and is lowered. Skyler Hunt 150 ft pounds that’s dog shit. David Brown 6’1″ I have owned 3 of them. Ryan Warnholtz Well, I’m 6’6, and I don’t fit. Lol

Put the top down and grab a friend. Time to go cruising in the Fiat 124 Spider. This two-seat roadster brings the athletic handling and performance, plus surprisingly good fuel economy. The 124 Spider is ranked No. 4 in sports cars, with all three trims starting under $30K.

The 2016 Scion FR-S is a leading light in the sub-$30k sports car field. The Scion FR-S delivers an unbeatable combination of lightweight design and excellent chassis balance, coupled with a rear-wheel drive layout that makes the most of the low center of gravity afforded by its boxer 4-cylinder engine. Some might complain about the 200 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque produced by its 2.0-liter mill, but this is a car that was built for track day shenanigans, not drag race glory. Our recommendation is to avoid the 6-speed automatic transmission and stick with the 6-speed manual that comes standard with the car in order to get the most enjoyment out of the Scion’s package. In 2015, Scion tweaked the suspension to more closely match the FR-S’ sibling, the Subaru BRZ.

Last year, the Ford Mustang celebrated its 50th anniversary and a ton of changes. No longer purely a muscle coupe, the 2016 Mustang positions itself as a luxury option in the higher trim levels. The base model offers plenty under $30k, though, with a 3.7-liter V6 engine rated at 300 horsepower and 280 ft-lbs of torque. There are plenty of tempting optional features available with the Ford Mustang, and chances are you’ll still come in below our price target.

So without further ado, here’s a list, in no particular order, of some of the best sports cars you can buy for less than $30,000*.

We dig the Charger’s duds. It’s evolved, it’s distinctive ,and it has serious presence. The Pentastar V6 makes 292 horsepower, and that’s good enough to haul the admittedly husky sedan to 60 in 6.5 seconds—just a second off what the 2005 Dodge Charger R/T did 10 years ago with a 350-hp Hemi underhood. That car didn’t have a miraculous 8-speed auto; this one does. Instead of a bargain-basement penalty box, it’s a quick, comfortable, handsome, and unabashedly American sedan for less than $30k.

Listen, it’s super-easy to option a Mini Cooper S well past $30K, but exercise restraint, and you shall be rewarded—with more power, the tossable nature you’re accustomed to, and at long last, an interior that puts usability ahead of retro-cuteness. Oh, the retro lives on, to be sure, but the new Cooper S is a bit more serious in its mission to deliver a viable GTI alternative. It’s fast and fun, but take note—the real secret handshake may not be the S at all. The base 3-cylinder turbo Cooper is a snorty, joyful thing, and it’s cheaper still.

It’s not a sports car, but when you drive it, you may think you’re in one. The Mazda6, ranked No. 3 in midsize cars, puts the fun in family sedan. Mazda also enjoys its status as the winner of the 2017 Best Car Brand.

For around $30,000, you have choices in the iconic Ford Mustang lineup, including a convertible. The Mustang is ranked No. 3 in sports cars. Beyond a variety of engines, America’s auto sweetheart has a well-appointed interior, high safety ratings, and modern safety features.

The Chevrolet Camaro celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. Ranked No. 2 in sports cars, the iconic Camaro offers three models and four engines, all with road-gripping power. This muscle car weighs less than its predecessors, and reviewers give its performance thumbs-up across the board.

Forget for a minute the complaints you’ve heard about Toyota and Subaru’s twin coupes being underpowered and in need of turbocharging, because when it comes to good old fashioned driving fun, these two are hard to beat. The jointly developed Toyo-baru is a throwback to the lightweight, driver-focused sports cars of yore, forgoing mounds of power in favor of a nimble and balanced ride.

The sleek and sporty Scion FR-S has become a favorite driver’s car thanks to world-class handling characteristics, a healthy aftermarket culture, and performance that rivals much more expensive cars. The FR-S (and the nearly identical Subaru BR-Z) brings plenty of fun and speed to the table, getting 200 horsepower from its 2.0 liter, four-cylinder engine paired with six-speed manual or automatic transmissions. For $27,200, drivers get one of the most exciting and underrated cars on the road, and while Scion won’t live beyond 2016, the FR-S will carry on as the Toyota 86.
