Best Value Performance Cars

Each year, MOTOR rounds up over a dozen new performance cars under $100K and we call it Bang For Your Bucks, or BFYB for short.

Usually in two categories, $0-$50K and $50K-$100K, two price-range winners are chosen, and then one of those is given the outright title for the year.

A thorough algorithm, mixed with the verdict from our esteemed judges, makes sure only the best value cars come out on top.
