When you drive, you like to move fast and have always admired the sleek, race-ready look of a sports car. Sports cars typically offer greater performance or horsepower than “normal” cars. They also often have steering and suspension designed for precise maneuvering at high speeds. Car manufacturers take into account the power-to-weight ratio, as well as the center of gravity, to optimize the vehicle’s speed, acceleration, and aerodynamic efficiency. Sports cars tend to have outfitting for racing but are more often used on regular streets and highways.

Sports cars are fun to drive, ride in, and pass by when given the opportunity. However, many high-end versions cost a lot of money. We made our rankings based on a combination of style, speed, and saving. Check out these 8 affordable sports cars that won’t break the bank:

1. Ford Mustang

One of the most iconic sports cars out there, the Ford Mustang sits at the top of its class. Its latest models include a fancy, yet comfortable, interior as well as quick 0-to-60 turnover. The Ford Mustang combines muscle-car style and athletic handling with road-trip-ready smooth driving.

  • Price: $25,845
  • Engine: Turbo 2.3 liter, four-cylinder
  • Transmission: 6-speed manual; 10-speed automatic
  • Horsepower: 310 hp

2. Chevrolet Camaro

The Chevrolet Camaro offers one of the best fuel economies in a sleek, fashionable model. It produces a super agile and smooth ride, especially noticeable on winding roads. The Camaro comes in a light, low-to-the-ground style that feels and is fast.

  • Price: $25,905
  • Engine: Turbo 2.0 liter, four-cylinder
  • Transmission: 6-speed manual; 8-speed automatic
  • Horsepower: 275 hp

3. Nissan 370z

The Nissan 370z delivers classic sports car styling in convertible and coupe models. It provides a well-balanced feel with a sport-tuned suspension system. The two-seater costs more than most others on this list but definitely brings that zippy, sports-car feel.

  • Price: $29,990
  • Engine: 3.7 liter, V6

  • Transmission: 6-speed manual
  • Horsepower: 250 hp

5. Honda Civic Si Coupe

The Honda Civic Si Coupe only comes with a manual transmission option for the traditional sports car feel. “Si” stands for “sport-injected,” meaning it incorporates common sport car features into one of the most recognizable cars in the world. It’s great for coming out of corners with acceleration and brakes expertly.

  • Price: $24,100
  • Engine: 2.0 liter, four-cylinder
  • Transmission: 6-speed manual; 6-speed automatic
  • Horsepower: 155 hp

  • Transmission: 6-speed manual; 6-speed automatic
