Underrated Cars You Should Test Drive
Some cars are not given the praise and attention that their qualities merit. Here are the top cars that I think are most underrated. So, when you’ve read more about them, why not take one for a test drive?
If you want a small sporty car, make sure you don’t rule out the Volvo C30. It gets nowhere near as much love as the Mini Cooper S or the Golf GTI, but this Volvo is better than all of those rivals. It gives you a lot of power on the road, and it is so much fun to drive. And that’s not something you necessarily expect from the Volvo brand. And, of course, the car is very safe, as all Volvo cars are. It’s a car that gives you the best of both worlds in that regard.
Most people simply ignored the Scion xB when it was originally released. And other people hated the design. The car was quite successful with older people, but other than that, it was a failure. And that’s a shame because it is actually a really good car that deserves a lot more attention than it gets. The shape of the car is boxy, but this can work to its advantage on the road. Even if the design doesn’t appeal to everyone. It’s a car that’s reliable and really easy to drive, so give it a try.
Many people don’t think about Kia when they are choosing a car to buy next. But that’s a big mistake Kia has made many high-quality cars, and the Kia Rio is one of them. It’s a supermini for grownups. It has the size and space you want, and it’s very stylish too. When you combine those factors with the fact that the car is pretty cheap to buy and inexpensive to run, it’s hard to see why it’s not more popular. It’s one you definitely shouldn’t rule out.
It’s not often talked about as one of the great city cars, but there are few that could better the Chevrolet Spark when it comes to city driving. Everyone who owns one knows this, yet not enough people realise how good they are at navigating the city. They are small and easy to manoeuvre, making them very simple to park. You’ll have no trouble getting around narrow streets and maintaining full control amid all that city centre traffic. Give it a test drive to find out for yourself.
This Mazda is a great sporty crossover that offers drivers everything they could possibly want from this kind of car. It has plenty of space in the back and you’ll be surprised at just how fun a car it is to drive when you get it on the road. Honda and Toyota might be dominating the market for cars like this, but don’t buy a car from them until you’ve considered the Mazda CX-5. The bigger version with the 2.5-liter engine is the one you should opt for if you’re thinking about buying a CX-5.
