Top 5 Fun Vehicles to Drive
Are you a driving enthusiast? Does getting behind the wheel of a fasts car stimulate your senses? Given the situation this year, do you want to travel the roads of Quebec in the summer? Are you currently looking for a new vehicle? If you answered yes to any of these questions, we’ve got something that will appeal to you.
Because if you're going to buy a new or used car, it has to be fun to drive.
Here are five vehicles that are sure to give you complete satisfaction. Just take a look at the used cars for sale in Baie-Comeau, La Malbaie, Chicoutimi, Alma and Sept-Îles at your ToutesLesMarques.ca dealerships.
The Mazda MX-5, also known as the Miata, has already passed its thirties. No matter which model year you're interested in, you’re sure to find one thing: Pure delight with every ride. If you go for a 2019 (or newer) model, you’ll find a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder motor under the hood with 181 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque.
If you opt for a model manufactured prior to 2018, the same engine would deliver 155 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque. Even if the more powerful engine delivers more enjoyment, you won’t be disappointed by the less powerful motor, because beyond its raw performance, this speedster’s driving experience is extraordinary. A low centre of gravity, extremely precise steering, sharp handling, and aggressive braking - all the ingredients are there.
If you can afford it, take a little detour to the Porsche Boxster (or 718 Boxster for the more recent versions) will also have an extraordinary hold on your senses. Getting behind the wheel of a Porsche is an experience you should have at least once in your life. Why? Because vehicles from this manufacturer are not only a means of transportation; they are an extension of ourselves.
The connection with the road that you experience in a Boxster is like being fused to the road. It's nothing short of divine. Any doubts? Try one and you'll see.
Toyota 86 or Subaru BRZ
In 2013, two quite stunning cars were launched simultaneously; one from Subaru, the other from Toyota. Both were the result of a unique partnership, and they created quite a stir when they hit the market.
Of course, their spectacular styling had something to do with it, but more importantly, these cars offered something that was becoming increasingly rare in the industry: lots of excitement behind the wheel. With a weight distribution that is close to perfection, driving the Subaru BRZ or the Toyota 86 is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. And we're not talking about a convertible here, so you can make the enjoyment last all year long with good winter tires.
In fact, winter driving in the BRZ will make you forget about the cold. But first, enjoy a summer of driving this affordable and reliable model with its 205-horsepower, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine – it’s Subaru’s protégé.
An important detail - when the model was created at Toyota, it was under the Scion brand name. Before 2017, it was called the FR-S.
How can we leave out the Ford Mustang? Since 1964, Ford has offered a model that is nothing like the others. Available as a coupe or convertible, it can be found with a 4-cylinder, a V8, or even a V6 engine under the hood if you go back a few years. With the Mustang, the driving experience is unique and refreshing. No other model compares.
Surprised to see an SUV on our list? With the Jeep Wrangler, just like with the Ford Mustang, you can live a unique experience through your vehicle. We're not talking about performance or handling here, but rather the adventure offered by a vehicle that can drop its doors and roof to give you more freedom. It’s truly unique!
