Interested in a Fun but Affordable Performance Vehicle

I'm interested in a small performance car. Nothing fancy, but still fun to drive. The Focus RS has huge markups so I am hoping that won't be the case with the Cruze SS.

Interested in any other suggestions of vehicles I could look into.

Cheers

Maybe the upcoming 10th gen Honda Civic Si? The 9th gen has 205 horsepower and 174 lb.-ft. of torque so I assume the next gen will have even more power under that bonnet.

What do you consider affordable? I have no idea what the Cruze SS could be priced at if it does come out.

Well it's going to compete with the new Honda Civic Si, Subaru WRX and Ford Focus ST so I assume the price would be somewhere around those cars.

Maybe 25k-32k?

WIll there be a dealer mark up like some other performance cars get? That would be disappointing.

depends on how good the car is and how many Chevy plans to produce each year. If it's always in shirt supply then the dealerships are most likely going to try and make you pay more.

Depends on your dealership. Sometimes they'll sell at MSRP but most won't because they wan't the extra profit. Hopefully it won't be the case with the Cruze SS but it never hurts to become friendly with your chevy dealership sales guys.

GM seems like it wouldn't make it a limited supply product. I just don't get the feel of a limited edition model with the Cruze SS. GM has many other vehicles that already fill that space.

Unlike the Chevy SS this is a product I can see having much more demand and it's a hatchback so it targets a lot of key areas in serving someone. They're just going to be better off monitoring how things go and to go with what the market wants.

Maybe not limited units but they'll only be able to produce so many per year and people will be rushing to get one hence the price gouging.
