Why are expensive cars being devalued?

BMW 218i Coupe

Fancy a classic BMW coupe with a beautiful rear-wheel drive balance? Well, with 136 hp from a 1.5-liter three-cylinder, the 218 is not exactly bursting with potency, in other words: If you want to drift, you have to get a lot of momentum. But you can live with the performance (0-100 km / h in 8.8 seconds, 210 km / h top speed) and you can hardly be much nicer for 27,850 euros.

Ford Ranger 2.2 TDCi 4x2

The Ranger is probably not exactly what you would expect from a classic rear-wheel drive car. Thanks to 330 Newton meters of torque, it should at least be enough for hillbilly-like burnouts. Anyone who wants to cruise off-road as well as on the highway with their pick-up should still use the all-wheel drive model. You can also load (up to 750 kilos) and pull (up to 2.2 tons) properly with the two-seater Ranger 4x2 from 27,846 euros.

Nissan Navara NP300 King Cab 4x2

Another pick-up? Yes, yes. But where else do you get a length of 5.22 meters and rear-wheel drive for an ascetic 25,095 euros? Advantage Nissan Navara: With 160 diesel horsepower, it packs 30 extra horses in the truck compared to the cheapest Ford Ranger. Also included: coil springs instead of leaf springs, three tons of trailer load and an incredible amount of chrome.

SsangYong Rodius 2.2 Diesel 2WD

Hey, don't get upset. They wanted a cheap rear-wheel drive and here's one. Drifting tendencies on a sunny, empty alpine pass are not to be expected from the SsangYong Rodius 2.2 Diesel, but for 24,990 euros it stretches to 5.13 meters and has space for up to seven people. In addition, it is a feast for the eyes compared to its famous ugly predecessor.

Fiat 124 Spider

Aaaah, we have finally reached the place where friends of rear-wheel-drive driving fun have their mouths watering. The new Fiat 124 Spider is basically a Mazda MX-5 with more "Amore" in the sheet metal and a somewhat more relaxed chassis setup. Nevertheless, it fits like a glove and scurries through corners with a tail-heavy head that you want to cry for joy. The whole thing from 23,990 Euro.

BMW 116i

If you're reading this, you're probably a rear-wheel drive fan. As such, you absolutely have to buy a BMW 1 Series now. Why? Because the coming 1 series will no longer have one. Yes, it sounds horrible, but BMW's compact is castrated to a front-wheel drive. Whether the 116i, which costs 23,250 euros with its 109 PS three-cylinder, is suitable for a slippery, smoky driving dynamics monster remains to be seen. However, it is currently not possible to enjoy the classic BMW virtues cheaper than with it.

Mazda MX-5 Skyactiv-G 131

In the fourth generation, the mother of all affordable, fun roadsters lures with even less weight, even more driving dynamics and the feeling as if you had sat down somewhere and a couple of Japanese people had quickly blown you over with a car. For the rest, what applies to the Fiat Spider applies. More fun for less money is hardly possible. At 22,990 euros, the basic MX-5 costs a thousand less than its Italian brother.

SsangYong Actyon Sports 2.0 Diesel 2WD

The third cheapest option currently in Germany to own a new car with anarchic rear-wheel drive attributes is… dear… a pick-up from SsangYong with 155 hp diesel. Do not expect much sportiness from the Actyon Sports 2.0 D, but a lot of dough and a general imbalance in the chassis. After all, for their 20,490 euros you get an amazingly large steering wheel, five seats and a payload of almost 700 kilos.

Smart Fortwo Coupé

Rear engine, rear-wheel drive, rough, rattling engine sound. Who doesn't immediately think of a ... um ... Smart? Yes, the city dwarf has everything a real sports car needs. Unfortunately, it only has 61 hp and a wheelbase of 1.87 meters. So it is too weak and short for its stern to break out. Should it happen - for whatever reason - the ESP straddles between them faster than you can say "tree". And that is also very good in view of the smart driving dynamics. However, the rear-wheel drive ensures an epic turning circle of less than seven meters All of this from 10,485 euros.

Renault Twingo Sce 70

Cheers at Renault! The absolute over-saver among the rear-wheel drive jokers is the Twingo Sce 70. It is longer than the Smart and therefore has a better chance of plowing completely sideways through a curve (that's what you buy a Twingo for). Unfortunately it only has 70 hp and very strict stability control. But the rear-engine rear-wheel drive layout also makes the Smart brother super agile and nimble. The charming French is yours from 9,690 euros.
