7. Scion FR-S
The Subaru-Toyota lovechild liked by so many is an obvious choice. Toyota was so fanatic in finding ways to save weight that it made the wheel wells out of soft plastic.
Both brands understand that they have something special: a car with real potential to re-ignite driving enthusiasm among young buyers.
At $25,255 including delivery, the FR-S doesn’t offer the most power per dollar. Still, a few minutes behind the wheel will make it hard to deny exactly how worthwhile this car is.
The Subaru version comes at a premium, but buyers willing to spend more get perks including sport seats upholstered with leather and Alcantara. Oh, and the WRX wasn’t forgotten, just reserved for a list focused on hooning cars in snowy parking lots.
