How suitable is a performance car for me?

Performance cars, their purpose is in the name. Power, speed, and aggression are at the heart of all performance cars, leading them to be some of the best cars to drive. However, performance cars are more usable on a day-to-day basis than many would expect, because usually, they're muscled-up versions of everyday cars such as hatchbacks, superminis, and SUVs.

They're often more expensive to buy and run than their tame counterparts, but if you're focused on driver enjoyment and fierce styling, then they may be the perfect fit.

Performance cars such as the Vauxhall Astra VXR are popular as they blend the great all-round traits of a hatchback with enhanced dynamics to forge a potent package. Other options include the likes of the Audi S3 and Audi RS 5, offering lighting-fast acceleration as well as a premium finish.
