The turbo Focus ST is a great drivers car for a hatch. I saw a test between the ST and a VW GTi . The ST won in just about every test. They will do 150+ mph ,come with 257 hp ,Recaro seats ,handling springs and shocks/struts .I found one for sale at $26k .That seems pricy for a Focus but not when you get all that performance equipment.   The ST is not your Grandmother's Focus.

I don't see how they could make this list and not include the 2013 Genesis Coupe. 

2.0T - 274 HP, 275 lb-ft torque and starts at $25K
3.8 - 348 HP, 295 lb-ft torque and starts at $29K

Can get a decked-out 3.8 Track (all the bells and whistles) for under $34K.

Every other car listed here is bare-bones, start adding options and the price will climb fast.

And nothing else on this list has a warranty that comes close to the Genesis Coupe except maybe the Kia.

The Genesis Coupe is easily the best bang for your buck. This list is a joke to not even mention it.

Is there any way MSN can figure out how to get the article on one page?

This is a really good list. Some of these cars will have real issues with reliability (Mini, VW) and some will have a problem holding their value (Mitsubishi, Kia), but the ones I've driven are lots of fun. Nice job.

240Z, 260Z, 280Z, .....300ZX!......., 350Z,  and  now 370Z...OK, so it has an "X"  paired with the Z but the 300ZX was a nice  lil sports car in the mid eighties and WAS the Nissan model in the sequence the article omitted.

Having driven the Challenger, Camaro and Mustang, it's hard to imagine anyone opting for the Camaro over the other 2, unless they are a CHEVY person.  The car is nice, but the visibility from the driver's seat is horrendous and severely obstructed.  It's a good looking car, but not safe compared to the Challenger or the Mustang due to the seats/hood.  Looks powerful, but it doesn't matter how fast your car is, if you can't see where you are going.

 

If you haven't driven ALL 3 and compared, you can't compare, if you have, you know it's true.  Now proceed to "thumb down" me because you like the Camaro.

A better list that they usually post here.  Some cars are missing IMHO.  But seriously, a Dodge Challenger, Kia Optima, and a Chevy Camaro?  There are a multitude of cars that are more enjoyable to drive, without the bloat.  The Camaro was one of the worst cars I have ever rented from a driver's perspective.  Not sure why a Camaro seems to make every single list you guys put out.
