Clio Renaultsport 200
- Price: $28,443
- Gas mileage: 28.6 mpg
French manufacturer Renault has connections to Formula 1 racing, so combining performance, style and luxury to create the Clio Renaultsport 200 is right up their alley. Unfortunately, Renault doesn't sell the Clio in the U.S.
The three-door hatchback starts at $28,443. For that price, consumers get a 2-liter, 16-valve, four-cylinder gas engine that pumps out 197 horsepower.
To further advance performance and give the car a sport-oriented style, Renault added 17-inch, five-spoke wheels and a rear diffuser, normally only found on high-end sporting cars, that holds the chassis to the ground.
It gets an economical 28 mpg, which isn't as good as some of the other vehicles on the list. But what it sacrifices in fuel economy, it makes up for in speed.
Renault says it'll go from zero to 62 mph in an impressive 6.9 seconds. And it tops out at 141 mph.
