10 Cheap New Cars With Lots of Horsepower in 2021

More power for your hard-earned money

It’s no secret that car prices are rising. They boast advanced crash constructions, cutting-edge infotainment systems, and fuel-efficient engines.

As a result, inexpensive horsepower has fallen out of favor. However, there are some cars that will get your heart beating without breaking the wallet.

One may think that the “affordable horsepower” club is exclusive for American muscle vehicles, but there are plenty of family sedans and hatchbacks from all over the world that can make the same claim.

U.S. News & World Report has prepared a list of 11 cars that are reasonably priced (usually under $35,000) but have plenty of power. 200 to 250 horsepower is a good quantity for certain compact cars. If we go over our self-imposed budget of $35,000, we’ll make sure to explain why.
