How suitable is a sports or performance car for me?

Sports and performance cars have long been a desirable option in the world of motoring thanks to their spirited nature and sleek, eye-catching style.

Whilst they're still more expensive to run than the likes of hatchbacks and superminis, the development of powertrain technology means sports and performance cars are now both fast and fairly efficient, making them a suitable partner for day-to-day life for those that have the need for speed.

To make things easier, we've split our reviews into two sections, so it's easier for you to find what you're looking for:

Sports cars are often purpose-built with sharp road dynamics in mind, having a low-ride height and a 2-seat setup more often than not. Performance cars are usually enhanced versions of already-popular models, and can come in all shapes and sizes, making them suitable for a wide range of lifestyles.
