Most & Least Fun Cars to Drive
January 9, 2014Some cars are fun to drive and some, well...not so much. Whether it's bad handling, not enough power, or a little bit of both, some cars are just not as fun to drive as others.
Consumer Reports recently came up with their list of cars that are the most fun -- and those that are the least fun -- based on things like handling, steering feel, acceleration and sound.
On the fun list are the likes of the Mini Cooper S, Jaguar XJ, Volkswagen Golf, Porsche Cayenne and BMW X1. Those on the least fun list include the Toyota 4Runner, Jeep Compass, Nissan Versa, and BMW 750Li.
