Once a distant dream to many, sports cars have evolved over the years to become increasingly within reach to the masses. They might have a reputation for being expensive, but now that car manufacturers are pushing more affordable alternatives to drivers seeking a bit more thrill than the average saloon, entry-level sports cars have opened a whole new market for the industry.

It’s easy to understand the draw. For one, sports cars are focused on performance, so even an entry-level option ticks plenty of boxes for the discerning driver. Sure there are saloons and even crossovers that could do the same but nothing quite beats the feeling of sitting low to the ground and feeling in total control with vivid handling poise and immersive driver engagement at your fingertips. Besides, you’ll never be late for work again.
