#10 2015 Lexus RC 350 F Sport– $42,790

2015 Lexus RC 350 F Sport

If you are looking for a power packed performance with a color that screams attention, then this is the car for you. Chock-full of new features and horsepower, the Lexus F series has done pretty well with its newest addition.

Vehicle type:

  • 4 seater
  • Front engine
  • Rear-wheel drive
  • 2-door coupe

 

Engine type:

  • aluminum heads and block
  • DOHC 24-valve V-6
  • port and direct fuel injection

 

Dimensions:

  • Wheelbase: 107.5 inches
  • Length: 184.8 inches
  • Width: 72.4 in Height: 54.9 in
  • Passenger/cargo volume: 82.0/10.4 cu ft
  • Curb weight: 3894 lb

 

Displacement:

  • Power: 306 hp @ 6400 rpm
  • Torque: 277 lb-ft @ 4800 rpm

 

Fuel Economy:

  • EPA city/highway: 19/28 mpg
  • C/D observed: 19 mpg

 

Transmission:

8-speed automatic with manual shifting mode

 

Benefits:

Although the car makes heads turn wherever you go, this can be considered a good thing if you like the attention. The Lexus F Sport has an extremely sleek look that houses a wonderful V-6 engine with a 306 horsepower. Although the suspension is soft, it grips to the road very easily which makes for a smooth and powerful ride. The car is very quiet even at high powers which are another big plus. It also operates mainly on forward thrust.

Setbacks:

One big problem is the suspension’s unwillingness to harness that power. With an awkward tilt, the suspension does not push the car to the limits it can reach with its shyness to catch on to the engine’s power. The suspension can give much more than it is actually designed to. While the Lexus trackpad has a lot of potential and it explores the maps and directions pretty easily, the touch itself is hard to use. With very awkward point placements it can be hard to get onto the one you actually need.

#9 BMW 328i xDrive Sports Wagon – $47,775

BMW 328i xDrive Sports Wagon

Just when it seems like everybody was beginning to choose sedans over hatchbacks, BMW bought back the trend in a spectacular fashion with this car. Newly designed and rechristened as a ‘sports wagon’, this particular BMW outweighs their sedans by a large amount whilst keeping the drive almost identical and is a great sports car under $50000. With an easy 5 passenger placement, here are the specifications of this sports wagon.

Specifications:

Vehicle Type:

  • front-engine
  • 4-wheel-drive
  • 5-passenger
  • 5-door wagon

 

Displacement:

  • 122 cu in, 1997 cc
  • Power: 240 hp @ 6000 rpm
  • Torque: 255 lb-ft @ 1250 rpm

 

Transmission:

8-speed automatic with manual shifting mode

 

Engine type:

  • intercooled DOHC 16-valve inline-4
  • Turbocharged
  • aluminum head and block
  • direct fuel injection

 

Fuel:

  • city/highway driving: 22/33 mpg
  • observed: 25 mpg

 

Dimension:

  • Wheelbase: 110.6 in
  • Length: 182.2 in
  • Width: 71.3 in Height: 56.5 in
  • Curb weight: 3800 lb

Benefits:

With a turbocharhed, 2 litre four cylinder engine, the entire journey is always smooth and nimble. With an ample front and rare space, the rear trunk is a good 18 cubic feet. Another good feature of this sports wagon is the rear window’s ability to open separately. This makes storing things much quicker too.

With almost all the qualities for the BMW X1 series, you can get the BMW 328i X series for a much lesser price. Putting the car into sports mode in the beginning makes it easier to shift the gears and drive more nimbly too.

Setbacks:

The weight of the sports wagon is far more than any of the sedans from BMW. The weight ratio also increases from 50.4 on the rear axle (sedan) to 51.7 on the sports wagon. This can reduce the speed of the sports wagon as well. The adjustable suspension has a default mode of Comfort so you might have to deal with a lot of front and back motion when you need to shift it if you are not keen on changing the mode to Sport. You will also have to give up on the manual/rear drive and the six-cylinder option as well.

#8 BMW M235i– $44,025

BMW M235i

Direct replacements for the 1-series, the BMW M235i series were BMW’s attempt to comeback and seize the sedan market. Although the design of the car was not very well-received, this car has paved the way for the future M-series that are now available in the market. With the classic MotoSport designation, it is not in the highest form of sports cars. However, the stability and the sturdiness of the car make up for its flaw in design perfectly and make it one of the top cars under 50k.

Unlike the 1-series, the space and the length of the car is also longer which makes it sleeker and all the unnecessary designs are removed.

 

Setbacks:

Without a proper classification in the M series, you do not have any other option of changing the engine as well.

Fuel:

EPA city/highway driving: 23/27 mpg

Benefits:

The reason for the car to be so beastly is the massive upgrade it got from the Audi TT in the form of its own cylinder head, high pressure fuel injections systems, pistons and the turbocharger. With a computerized gear shifting i.e dual-clutch, six speed transmission, you do not have to worry about any sudden changes that are required. It also has a 292 horsepower and the thrust you will receive is incredible.

 

Setbacks:

With a torque of 280, you will have to be able to wait for it to kick in at 1900 rpms instead of 1600 rpm. It also takes much longer to run out at 5300 rpm instead of 4400 rpm. Although the computerized transmission is great, it doesn’t give the user a chance to use a manual gearbox at all. If you are set on the Audi TT’s design, the novelty of it is not available in the TTS anymore.
