When you’re selecting your next new car, considering novated leasing might just make your decision a whole lot easier. You won’t have to dig too far into your pockets for the initial outlay as you would in a more traditional purchase, and there are more cars on the market than fish in the sea!
For your own car though, you’ll want to get behind the wheel of something special. Racing cars aren’t practical, and luxury cars don’t wear too well in a family situation.
A great compromise, and something that meets in the middle, is a family car that comes with a sweet exhaust note. Check out the three options below for some of the best sounding cars on the market:
1) Ford Focus RS
Not only is the Ford Focus RS one of the coolest looking cars around, it also sounds incredible.
The snarls and crackles that come from the twin pipes at the rear will make your skin erupt in goose bumps. Then, when you put your foot down, you’ll be shot into the back of your chair thanks to the 2.3-litre Ecoboost engine that pumps out a whopping 257 kilowatts of power. That’s a silly amount for a hatchback, but one that any car enthusiast will be jumping at!
The Focus RS also comes in some great colours, including Frozen White and Nitrous Blue, so you’ll have plenty of options when it comes to making it look even more menacing.
A loud exhaust is nothing without great wheels, and the 19-inch designs that Ford went with for this car really tie it all together. You’ll have the best time on a road trip in this amazing sounding machine.
2) Mercedes-Benz AMG A 45
This second car is the Mercedes-Benz AMG A 45 – another really cool hatchback that will make your heart race as soon as you turn the key (or, in this case, press the button).
As with every offering from the geniuses at the AMG tuning house, this car has one of the best sounding, rumbling exhaust notes ever produced. That’s all thanks to the quad-pipe exhaust manifold that tucks very neatly into the rear bumper. While this car was originally designed to be a fuel-efficient and comfort-driven hatchback, AMG turned it into a true predator of the road.
It has understated looks, apart from the enormous optional rear wing and aggressive engine hood. That bonnet hides a 2.0-litre, inline four-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 280 kilowatts of power and an enormous 475 Nm of torque. Once that block is pumping, the whole neighbourhood will know about it.
Music to the ears!
3) Fiat 500 Abarth 695 Biposto
The Fiat 500 is a classic car – originally built for the quiet Italian roads and lack of parking. Fiat’s own tuning house, Abarth, has transformed the first iteration into this absolute beast of a hot hatch: the Fiat 500 Abarth 695 Biposto.
The name doesn’t quite roll off the tongue, but it was never going to be the most beautiful sounding aspect of this machine anyway. That was always set to be the exhaust.
It’s by far the smallest car on this list, weighing in at only 997 kilograms, and has a 1.4-litre turbocharged engine that produces 140 kilowatts of power and 250 Nm of torque. It’ll shoot from 0 to 100 kph in just 5.9 seconds, and it’ll be like a throaty symphony all the way there.
Thanks to a twin-tip titanium exhaust setup designed by Akrapovic, the Abarth 695 is a seriously impressive piece of engineering. You’ll love the look, too – this car screams street appeal!
