Cars That Offer Most Horsepower for the Money
May 31, 2012
Each week, TrueCar
compiles a list of the best car deals within different segments.
This week, they wanted to find out which cars offer the most horsepower at the lowest price. They found domestic brands offer the best bang-for-your-buck when it comes to pure horsepower.
The 2012 Dodge Avenger SE came in first place, with an average cost of only $61 per horsepower. For comparison, the Toyota Camry - America's best-selling car, costs $118 per horsepower. That's almost twice as expensive as the Avenger.
Here are the top 5 cars that give you the most horsepower-per-dollar.
