Dodge Dart Rallye
Well basically it's basically an Alfa Romeo Giulietta with a Dodge skin over top. It has some unique lines that are close to being to radical for me to like, however it works. That and having the same engine as the Fiat 500 Abarth engine, it also makes a nice sound. Another plus with the Dodge Dart is it's easily found with a manual transmission, which is what you really want anyways!
I've been a fan of the Volvo S60 for a while, ever since my friend who owns an older model S60 R showed me his. The newer S60 gets even prettier, it gets a pretty cool looking front end, that looks pretty aggressive. The new new S60 isn't quite there for me, however since the one I like is still at the showrooms, Im choosing it! The only thing wrong with this S60 is they ditched the option for a manual transmission, which is no good. However I could get the drop-dead beautiful Polestar S60 with a manual, however that goes out of my price range...
Volvo C30 R-Design
The reason I'm putting the C30 ahead of the S60 is more or less because it is more affordable than the S60. The story on how I began to like the C30 is a bit different. It's actually because of Gran Turismo 5 on the PlayStation 3. I bought the car brand new in the game and fully customized it and added a the front spoiler and side skirts, and added a rear spoiler to it, then put some nice wheels on it. I found it absolutely beautiful looking. It was also awesome to race with. Now in real life it (unless I had more money) it wouldn't be as nice as it was in GT5, however I still find it pretty nice looking and not only that it is also a bit more spacious being that it's a hatchback.
Fiat 500 Abarth
This one is pretty much a no-brainer. It's Italian, it's fast, it's sporty, it's well equipped, it only has a manual transmission, it can come in red and black, same with the interior, the steering wheel looks awesome, I mean the list goes on. It may only have a 1.4 Litre L4 engine, however it's turbo charged, and Fiat has found a way to make it sound awesome, even the exhaust sounds awesome for a 4 cylinder. And yeah, did I mention the interior? Red and back leather seating with colour contrasting stitching, a flat bottom design steering wheel. And yes, it only comes in a 5-Speed manual transmission, which is awesome. More car companies need to think like Fiat. Seriously. And it starts at $22,000! I mean it's a steal! Sorta... well I mean you get the idea.
Alfa Romeo Giulietta
Well, what can I say? If you know me, you know I'm an Alfa Romeo nut. So of course you'll find an Alfa at the number one spot. It's the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, which will hopefully (that's right Chrysler, sell it as an Alfa, NOT a Dodge or something) coming soon the US. It has the unique Alfa exterior styling of course, and it has the same on the inside. It comes in a manual transmission, and it sounds good, and it's fast! Get the one with the 1750 TBi engine, which is a 4-cylinder engine with 232 hp, and will get you from 0-60 in 6.8 second, that's a fast little car. And once again it's a hatch, so it's also very usable with the rest of your life!
