Affordable must mean something different on your planet. Good list overall though.
No WRX, no Type R, no Si, no Focus RS? All true drivers cars and all good values for under $45 K. The RS will outhandle most of your list _-as will the Type R. And the new Si is so good, and such a great value I bought one- after test driving an RS and WRX. Adaptive dampers. steering, and throttle, limited slip to eliminate torque steer, .97 g on a skidpad,
the perfect amount of seat bolstering, performance gauges galore, turbo charging with strong mid range torque, and one of the best lightweight chassis out there for under $25k and still no love from you. And the Type R is so good they sold for well over list. But go ahead and recommended the 'affordable' TTRS and Cayman, lol. Great cars no doubt. But still.
Alright so i'm gonna make a list for new cars under 30k (affordable for most people)
For small and light rwd cars (note these are all close) - first miata, second brz/86, third fiat 124 spyder.
For as much power as you can for the money - first (tied) mustang and camaro, third (tied) challenger/charger, honorable mention (barely under 30k, but hasnt changed in a while so used is a good option) 370z.
For best hatchbacks (these are also really close) - first (barely under 30k ) GTI, second 2019 veloster, third civic si (honorable mention but they are discontinuing it) fiesta/focus st.
For people who like tiny cars that can sky rocket in price but are fun to drive - first and only the mini Cooper.
If you need awd (getting pretty old but is still fun) - wrx
Most fun if you need room or are on a pretty tight budget - the Honda fit
Sorry for long post lol
AFFORDABLE?! Exactly what is your definition of affordable? In what planet does a Corvette and a Porsche are affordable... for only $58k? Dear AutoGuide.com... affordable is more like a car that you can get for $30k or closer to that number. Also the BMW at the beginning looks like a sedan plus there is no affordability in BMW.
Maybe Autoguide should have put the cars on the list in categories to show how they are affordable. Like affordable everyday sports car and affordable luxury sports car. The Alfa Romeo and Porshe are affordable, but only when compared to the sportscars their luxury competition brands offer.
Toyota 86, WTF. That's NOT a sports car, and at 26K USD it's not cheap or good value. It's a RWD Prius and only looks slightly better. In the US you guys have so many good value sports cars it's quite strange you would even put the 86 or the Miata on any list!
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder - to me it looks plain rediculous, but not quite as rediculous as a Prius. It's performance specs and outright power are a joke. 26K USD Hahahahaha, it'd be good value as a shopping trolley for half that price.
If you are going to put a Cayman in there for $57k then your #1 car is the BMW M2 and you can send the M240i packing with an honorable mention. The Exterior styling of the M2 completely blows the M240i out of the water. Similar performance... YES ... similar looks ... NO!
Lol to all the people mention that they didn't add any hot hatchbacks to the list. Maybe it's because they're not SPORTSCARS.... The only car they're missing in this list is the Lotus Elise and Honda Civic Si Coupe
Guys, wtf? You have a 65k Audi and a Cayman that starts at 58k on the list. Hint: That ain't affordable. Focus ST is in the low 20's. Golf R is 40k, and that one's pushing affordability, but the GTI is in the 20's. Shameless content for the sake of content. You can do better. You need to do better.
Brz /86 , miata , mustang 2.3T， 350z are pretty affordable, but wtf is the rest? Anything more than 50k would not be considered affordable to majority of the people in the world. Less than 30k=cheap, 30k~50k=affordable, 50k~100k=attainable, 100k~150k= expensive, 150k+=Dream car
I don't consider anything over $50k "affordable" when you end up with a mortgage-sized payment. In the $20k range, the Miata/BRZ-FRS reigns, but you can make a GTI/Focus ST go much quicker and have much more convenience for the same money so I rather have those. In the 30s the 370Z is a good choice, but most people go with the Camaro/Mustang since you get a lot more engine performance and don't lose much in the handling department. In the 40s the 1LE Camaro is king, nothing touches it and remains the performance bargain of the decade, and $10k later you have the C7 Corvette Z51 which looks and handling are epic.
When average wage is around $30-40k before taxes, and rent is $15-20k per year including utilities, cars are not affordable. Sports cars and affordable shouldn't be in the same sentence. Affordable is <$15k for the majority of Americans. Think Nissan Versa, Chevy Spark, Hyundai Accent, etc...The only cars on this list that are affordable are USED. 370Z is 10 years old now. You can easily get a 2008 model which almost NOBODY can tell isn't a 2018, for a third of the price.
