Sport rides always have their own appeal. The body curves, the design, the interior cabin, and the power are just several points that make sport car appealing and good looking. Although most people think that all sport rides are expensive, there are several options that are actually pretty affordable – without compromising the feel and performance of the ride itself. Let’s take a look at the list one by one to get clearer ideas.

The auto transmission is also offered, depending on your preference. The steering is responsive with athletic and smooth handle; it feels solid and has strong grip to the street.
Another great thing about this Miata is the spacious interior cabin, even for tall people. It is nice, roomy, and definitely comfy. The interior is quite nice and good, although the company can do some improvements like having USB port installed. The trunk is enough, but not much – able to accommodate several bags; that’s all. But if you truly want a sporty ride with sleek design and very nice power, this one is definitely the one you after – despite some of the flaws.
The greatest thing about this ride – aside from the sporty and good looking design – is the nice handle and control. Who says sport ride is always difficult to tame?

The ride is running on four cylinder engine – which is quite responsive – that deliver great performance when matched up with manual six speed transmission. The manual transmission offers very smooth driving experience, while the optional auto six-speed transmission delivers quick and fast response. With 25 mpg for the city and 34 mpg for the highway, this sport ride is truly good to tackle twisty and bumpy road.
The standard features for this Scion is BeSpoke voice activated audio system – navigation included – and smartphone integration, Bluetooth connectivity, USB port, touch screen 6.1 inch display, and also Pioneer eights speaker audio system. Despite the great performance and sleek design, the interior cabin is not very luxurious and exclusive as it is mostly made of plastics. The trunk isn’t very large either, and the company can use the idea of having foldable rear seat. However, if you truly want a car that enables you to drive in style, this one should be included within your list.
