1990 Dodge Daytona

This 3-door sporty hatchback takes its cues from its classic name, which originally appeared as part of the 1969 Charger Daytona line.  It is a smoking little car, fast on its feet, but not skimping on a comfortable driving experience.  Plus, it gets decent gas mileage for a sports car, at about 21/28 mpg.

Available in base, ES, and Shelby trims, in normal or turbo engines, the 1990 Daytona is fast.  Depending on your need for speed, you can choose from various 4-cylinder engines, including the 2.2-liter 93-hp or its Turbo I version at 142-hp, the base 2.5-liter 100-hp or its turbocharged version at 152-hp (available only in ES and Shelby trims), or the Turbo II 2.2-liter 174-hp.  New for 1990 is a turbocharged 2.2-liter, 174-hp VNT Turbo IV engine only in the Shelbys and only as a manual.  This engine was dropped not too long after, and so it is a very rare find.  Also new is a a bigger 3.0-liter V6 engine, rated at 141-hp.  ABS is standard on ES and Shelby trims.  

The interior of the Daytona was redesigned in 1990 in cockpit fashion, with the addition of a driver's side airbag, and a new dashboard and steering wheel.  The 1990 Daytona is the last to feature both C/S (Carroll Shelby) Packages, the Performance and Competition.  Offered with base models, these performance packages included rear spoiler, high performance suspension and braking (similar to the Shelby), a Turbo I or II engine, and the appropriate C/S badges.

The car is fast, and that's why drivers like it.  It takes turns well and easily outraces the competition.  Many drivers praise its dependability.  Downsides are a cramped, almost useless backseat, problems with the paint chipping off, and difficulty finding after-market parts.
