2014 Top picks / Sports car under $40,000

By Benjamin Cyr

Here are the Best Picks for 2014 if you are looking for a Sports Car under $40,000.

Sports car (under $40 000) :


Winner: Ford Fiesta ST

Seriously, I don't think it is possible to have more fun on the road for $25,000. This little car is just a joy to drive and to throw in corners, both on the road or on the track. It might not be the fastest on a straight line but the smile of the driver tells a lot about the communication that exists between the car and the pilot. As a bonus, this car is a hatchback so it is still very practical.
 
Second  Place: Ford Focus ST

Dynamic, comfortable, well equipped, a blast to drive on the road or on the track and has nice looks. The Focus ST is as fast as a MazdaSpeed3 but offers the refinement of a GTI, almost. It is just sad for this car that the smaller Fiesta ST is now available, and cheaper.

Third Place: Volkswagen GTI

Even if the current generation of the GTI will soon be replaced, it is still very entertaining and refined. The handling is one of the best. The 2.0T is still a good engine but it is now lacking some power when compared with the top dogs.
