AutoGuide Under $30,000 Performance Car Shootout

Day One: Street Test


Mike Schlee | Aug 25 2014, 9:26 AM

Sporty cars are not dead. Rumors of their demise are premature. Thrill-packed machinery litters the automotive landscape, available to suit nearly every budget.
When it comes to motoring fun, one of the most intriguing segments is the under $30,000 price bracket, where several enticing choices can be found in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Want a traditional rear-wheel drive coupe or convertible? There is iconic Mazda MX-5 and the Scion FR-S. Looking for a sport compact coupe? Honda will gladly sell you the freshly updated Civic Si. What about a hot hatch? Well, there is an all-new 2015 Volkswagen GTI and a pair of recently introduced Fords, the Focus ST and the Fiesta ST. Or maybe an all-wheel drive street legal rally sedan is more your flavor? Good news, 2015 sees the introduction of a brand-new Subaru WRX. Or how about something completely different, like the Nissan Juke NISMO RS?
But Which One is More Fun?

All of these cars offer a different take on the old ‘fun-to-drive’ adage. But which one is the best? To find out, we assembled all eight cars to perform an epic track and street shootout. Emphasis would be put on how fun they are to drive, how engaging the driving experience is and how quick they are at the track. Superfluous things like audio systems, interior materials and gee-whiz technology wouldn’t factor into the scoring at all, but a small concession would be made to price, fuel economy, comfort and practicality. Most people shopping in this price range are... [Read More]

Ford Fiesta ST is track star, road ruffian

If you drive often on race tracks, you'll love Ford's pocket rocket, the Fiesta ST high-performance hatchback.

If your driving is more normal, you're likely to hate it. The ride is so hard you wonder if somebody forgot the springs or shock absorbers.

Judging from the stablemate Focus ST, a bit bigger car, it's clear Ford knows how to make an excellent-handling car that also rides comfortably.

Ford says the hard ride is the result of deliberately pushing Fiesta ST further toward the very sporty axis than is the case with Focus ST. That includes tires with significantly shorter — and thus stiffer — sidewalls that don't flex as much to help absorb bumps.

We understand the intent, but think Ford went too far for most people, including even those who like firm suspensions and tight handling.

Emphasizing its uncompromising personality, ST comes only as a hatchback and only with a manual transmission. You want an automatic or a four-door sedan, you settle for some other version of Fiesta.

ST is Ford's global designation for Sport Technology, meaning the excellent-handling, more-powerful performance versions of its cars.

The U.S. Fiesta ST is derived from the European version and is aimed at the malcontents who whine, "Why don't car companies bring those cool European cars to the U.S.? We never get the good stuff."

The Fiesta ST made its debut overseas in 2005, went through the requisite updates and re-dos, and only showed up in the U.S. a year ago as a 2014 model. The 2015s that are going on sale now are unchanged.

The ST's bragging points are what Ford calls the "sport-tuned" suspension, upgraded brakes and a more powerful engine. It also has the cool styling that Ford's been able to execute well on small cars, a challenge. Reasonable people disagree on matters of taste, so you might not like how it looks.

We had a chance to test the Fiesta ST extensively during the $30,000 Cheap Speed Challenge we did with Cars.com and MotorWeek and published in late July. It's... [Read More]

Which cars lead to grin-inducing satisfaction


Last updated: August 2014

Fun to drive is a subjective measure—an elusive quality that can mean different things to different people. From our experience, a car can have a very powerful engine and accelerate quickly, but without handling agility, it's not much fun. For us, fun is a combination of factors such as handling response, sound, and the nature of the power delivery that lead to grin-inducing satisfaction. To come up with our list of the most fun cars to drive, we first took a slice according to our scores for handling, steering feel, and body control. Then we looked at acceleration, but found most cars today have plenty of power. Finally, we took a secret ballot to give our testers a chance to capture those elusive subjective qualities, including sounds. Below, we present our picks for the cars that are the most and least fun to drive.

Category Most fun Least fun

Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ,
