Turbocharged cars are the best of both worlds, and perfect for any type of driver. They are fast, with an exhilarating performance, and they have a high gas efficiency that cannot be competed. Combined, they become super cars that people can’t live without. Since turbocharged cars are becoming more and more popular in the modern world, it’s hard to decide which the best are. That’s why this list was created. Here are the top 5 turbocharged cars for this technological filled world.
You can’t start a list off and not include a classic. The turbocharged Jetfire was one of the first turbocharged vehicles on the planet, released at the early year of 1962. The best part about this car is just how ahead of its time it was To make sure the turbocharged engine didn’t explode when it was fired up, they replaced regular gasoline with a mixture of water and alcohol — using water is common nowadays, but back then it was unheard of
2.) 2000 Audi S4
The 2.7 Liter Twin Turbo (bi-turbo) Audi S4 has to be on any top turbo list. It offered an All-Wheel Drive, 6 speed manual transmission with a deceptively fast 5.5 second 0-60 speed. Not bad for a 4 door sedan. Back when this car came out it was considered one of the fastest sedans on the market.
The most interesting thing about this little turbocharged vehicle is the fact that it doesn’t have a muffler —Dodge never installed one on it! With a combined MPG of only 22 this car is only 3 on the list, but the fact that it has one of the best performances on the road really made up for it Even brand new it was only worth $19,000, now worth only about $6,000, so it was surely a bang for your buck kind of turbocharged car.
Mercedes-Benz, a manufacturer truly known for its fantastic turbocharged cars, offered up the 2013 A45 AMG as one of the greatest turbocharged cars ever on the market. At a whopping $64,000, it’s more for drivers very serious about their turbocharged engines, but the glorious performance definitely makes it worth it unfortunately, the A45 never made it to the US, which is why it’s only 4 on the list.
Finally, the 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX makes it onto the list. Since 1992 Subaru has been coming out with amazing turbocharged cars, so there’s no way it cannot be mentioned. With a whopping 36 MPG on the highway and 27 in the city, along with a bright performance and a smooth drive, the Subaru Impreza is one of the most impressive turbocharged cars to date. There are of course more turbocharged cars than just the five listed. In fact, with all that they have to offer, turbocharged cars are becoming more popular than regular vehicles. As such the competitive prices will continue to rise (along with the gas mileage, fortunately), so it’s good to get a turbocharged car now before the price skyrocket on them.
