Can You Have Fun at Under 200 Horsepower?

2015 Fiat 500 Abarth Driving

For a vast majority of us, we will never drive a car that is our own that has over 200 horsepower. There are a few reasons we are going to be left out of the high-powered class of vehicles. First of all, most of us will certainly scoff at the idea of spending the money on a car that offers a high horsepower number because the shear price tag turns us away. Second is the lack of need, what will this additional horsepower be for and where can we drive it, so with practicality in mind it just doesn’t make sense. Third is fuel mileage. Less power typically equates to better fuel mileage, making it an easy choice between the two as we don’t want to be pumping gas 3-4 times a week for our power hungry V8 beast.

Because of all these reasons doesn’t it make sense to have something fun to drive that falls in our range of driving? Certainly many car manufacturers feel that way and offer several models that are both fun to drive and fall in the under 200 horsepower club to give us the fuel mileage (at least most of them) that we desire.
