If you’re looking for a car with rear-wheel drive, be prepared to spend north of $25,000 to get one. To be clear, that sum is well under the average transaction price of a new vehicle today. Because of the high demand for expensive trucks and SUVs, that number is up above $35,000. In other words, many RWD cars are indeed relative bargains.
They’ll also provide the kind of traditional performance you find in classic sports cars, along with the modern features you want in any 21st-century ride. For example, despite their pricing, all of these vehicles come standard with Bluetooth connectivity and rearview cameras. Some come standard with manual transmissions, too, but that’s all part of the fun if you’re a serious enthusiast.
