Top 5 Low Budget Sports Cars in India

Wouldn’t we all like to own a sports car and drive around like we’re in a ‘Need for Speed’ movie? Unfortunately, not only are the cars extremely expensive, but most of the roads in India wouldn’t permit us to go over 60 km/hr without having to swerve around a pothole or come to a screeching halt when someone suddenly decides to run across the road to fetch their football/cricket ball. But, if you still are interested in buying and owning a sports car in the country, it would be best to invest in a budget model at first. Fortunately, India has a list of budget-friendly sports cars that can be used as a daily driver.

Mini Cooper Convertible

Although the Mini Cooper was only recently launched in India, and some might not consider it a “sports car”, in reality, it is. Under the hood of the car, there sits either a 1.5L petrol or a 1.5L diesel engine that churns out 134 BHP and 116 BHP respectively. Both engine options can be had with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed automatic transmission. The car reaches a top speed of 228kmph and has an acceleration that goes from 0-100kmph in 7.1 seconds only. Some of the features we can find on the Convertible include air-conditioning and heating, automatic climate control, air quality control, remote trunk opener, cruise control, keyless entry, voice control, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, Bluetooth connectivity, and a premium sound system. In terms of safety, the Convertible comes with parking sensors in the rear, dual airbags, seatbelt warning, door ajar warning, engine immobilizer, traction control, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX Child Seat Mounts, a 360-degree camera, and a crash sensor.
