With each passing year, the sedan sector of the car market is becoming more and more competitive. Automakers must cultivate innovative ways to help distinguish their sedan from the rest of the crowd. Here are the best performance-oriented sedans on the market.
Honda Accord Sport
Many people view the Honda Accord as just another boring commuter car. The 2013 Honda Accord Sport has been engineered to change that perception. The sporty sedan uses a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine to keep the driver entertained. The Accord Sport also has an upgraded performance exhaust that lets out an aggressive growl when under throttle. Performance enthusiasts will love the 6-speed manual gearbox that amps up the fun factor.
For years, the BMW 3-Series sedan has been the cream of the crop in the performance sedan segment. The 2013 328i continues the tradition of delivering driving excitement. The 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine revs out 240 horsepower. Some drivers proclaim that the engine actually puts out even more power than the window sticker suggest. The best aspect of the 328i is its outstanding road handling ability. The only gripe that some owners have is that the steering wheel does not give enough feedback to the driver.
Chrysler 300 SRT8
If you prefer a larger vehicle, then you should give the 300 SRT8 a lot of consideration. The 6.4-liter, Hemi V8 engine roars with excitement. It pumps out a head-jerking 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. Its sports-tuned suspension makes the sedan handle like a much smaller car. The exterior design of the car is also more refined than the previous generation. On the inside, aspiring owners will be treated to an impressive list of high-tech amenities.
Cadillac ATS 3.6
Cadillac has developed one of the most engaging sports sedans on the market. Although there are other available engine choices, the V6 engine is the most potent. The heart of the 2013 ATS is its razor-sharp chassis. The ATS handles curvy roads like a true sports car. The automatic transmission has also been tuned to give the driver a sportier driving dynamic. Add the optional track package if you intend on taking it to a road course.
