[Solved] So I'm looking for a car


Topic starter

I'm looking for a car that has at least semi-decent gas mileage, is affordable, and is decently sporty... any suggestions?

Can you give us some more details: budget?, how old? 2 door or 4 door? How long do you plan to keep/ how many miles would you hope it lasts for?

Toyota Rav4 2009-2012 v6 or toyota camry 2007-2011 v6. They are fast, so that is the sport part. They also get about 23mpg combined. The camry v6 is going to be way more affordable than the rav4 v6, so I am leaning towards camry. But, you didn't give us much info, so that's the best I got for you.


We need more data to be of real help, but look at Toyota’s and Honda’s in the size and price range that work for you.

And if you want more specific input, be as specific as you can about what your objectives are: $$ budget, mpg efficiency, whEther just personal or family use, etc.


More info needed, your answer could be a Honda Civic or a Mazda 3, if going older it could be a Toyota Solara but stick to Toyota Honda or maybe newer Mazdas for the sportiness.


Depends on what you plan on using it for and how long you want it to last. If you plan to use it as an everyday car and drive it 20k+ miles a year, my first recommendation would be a Honda Civic. If sportiness is your top priority, try the Mazda Miata. If you want AWD, try the Subaru WRX. 


Mazda Miata, Subaru BRZ/Toyota 86/Scion FRS, Honda Civic Si, Hyundai Veloster N


If you don't need more than 2-person seating and do not need to haul a lot of stuff the answer to that is almost invariably Mazda Miata.
