Exhileration — Drive this car long distance. Every mile is fun with its entertainment system and superior handling. Turbo it to make it even more of a Subaru like life. The car gets great economy and can be a fun family day car as well.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The sleek styling, great fuel economy, sports car and fun long distance

Cons: Unrealistic back seats

Love It! — Makes an old guy feel young again! I was most impressed with incredible highway fuel mileage. I averaged over 40 mpg on a 500 mile trip. Goes like stink when you want it to, gives Prius mileage when you want it to.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Awesome handling, incredible fuel mileage

Cons: Back seat  usable only for children and probably only one, but that isn't what I bought it for.

What Handling Should Be — The 2013 Subaru BRZ is the embodiment of what handling in cars should be. This car has the looks and handling to be a track monster. Though it could use a little more power at high altitude, it is going to be a future track car for sure.

Pros: Amazing handling, amazing styling.

Cons: Lacks a little bit of power due to altitude and naturally aspirated

The Tin Can — I call her the Tin Can because of the silver color, but this car is anything but flimsy. On the contrary, she always feels solid and planted and only steps out when you ask her to (not difficult on 215 size Prius tires). With 'only' 200hp from the 2.0 flat 4, acceleration is hardly breathtaking but as low to the ground and as light as she is (2792lbs as equipped) you feel like you're strapped to a rocket. I sprang for the limited for the keyless entry and Alcantara seats and am very glad I did.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love the styling, the front seats are to die for, more than fun- driving it is an experience.

Cons: The rear seats are completely pointless, only takes 93 octane, nav system/stereo system somewhat difficult to operate.

The Best Handling Car You Can Buy For Less Than 70k — Great car. I love the looks, the ride and handling. It is the best handling car I have ever owned and I haven't even started modding it yet! I think the seats are the best as well and the average MPG is 32.7 so far.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Looks fantastic

Cons: The only thing I don't like is the lack of an armrest.

Best Sports Car Under $30k — Best handling new car at sub $30k price point with a hard top and 4 seats. Expected reliability is good and cost of maintenance is low considering Subaru/Toyota parts. Drives very well on back roads and race tracks yet handles bumps and rough roads surprisingly well. Steering feel and feedback is top notch given the combination of very low center of gravity and light weight. Front seats are comfortable and provide good support especially on the sides. Visibility and seating position are both excellent. Steering wheel has telescoping adjustment and seats are low. Larger/heavier adults may find it hard to enter/exit. Power is lacking when passing on highways but plenty for city driving and accelerating out of turns. Rear seats are small and headroom low and legroom very small but still usable by petite adults and small children. I am able to fit 2 to 4 year olds in Recaro ProSport child seats.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Great handling, easy to drive, lots of fun without having to go fast.

Cons: Low on power compared to other sports cars.  Lack of lumbar support.
