Best RWD car for the money?

Rear Wheel Drive cars are, arguably, the most fun and awesome cars to drive on a regular basis. Although it seems, sadly, that today's cars are moving in a more All-Wheel or Front Wheel drive direction. If you've never had the pleasure to experience what IS rwd I suggest you make the effort to go take a spin in one. I own two rwd cars and love them both. "Oh but in the snow and weather.." you may say, well if you're an experienced driver (or have any common sense) you will be just fine. 

Now on to the main topic...The best RWD car for the money today.
My vote goes to the Hyundai Genesis. The four-cylinder model has a starting price of just $22,000 which will buy you the most basic configuration, equipped with a 210-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. If you're looking for some more power, you'll have to throw down $25,000 for an extra 96 HP (bringing the total to 306-horsepower) in the 3.8-liter, V6 engine model. 
Too much for you? Try buying a used RWD car and (hopefully) you will have just as much fun.



  1. idk... you could get a used 95 camaro for around 4-5k and put money into it to get some beast performance out of it

  2. Thus is why the used RWD comment was made.
    The Genesis is the best NEW RWD car for the money in my opinion, I guess I should have specified new.
    But I definitely agree that older gen Camaros, Firebirds, and Trans Ams are the way to go for cheap performance RWD.
