1992-1994 Volkswagen Corrado SLC
Volkswagen Corrado SLC

Pros :
- One of the best-handling cars of all time.
- Straight-line performance combined with hatchback practicality.

Cons :
- Boxy styling getting a little old.
- Hard to find one.

The Corrado was only offered from 1990 to 1994, with the VR6-powered SLC introduced only in 1992. It is regarded as one of the best front-wheel-drive cars ever made in terms of handling, and VW hasn't produced anything as intriguing as this car since its demise.

The SLC, offered till '96 in Europe as the 190 hp Corrado VR6, is underrated among performance cars. It can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in six and a half seconds, and reach a top speed of about 140 mph. Handling, thanks largely to the four-wheel independent suspension, is among the best in the world. Such all-round ability makes it a great driver's car. The hatchback-coupe profile gives it the ability to ferry around two passengers in the tight back seat, although not for as long as, say, a non-stop cross-country expedition. The naturally-aspirated VR6 engine has always been regarded as one of Volkswagen's best engines, and this earlier-generation version is no exception.

German engineering is evident in this Volkswagen's build quality and the engine is as reliable as they get, but remember, it is a German car, so repairs can be a little expensive. A well-maintained used example should provide many more years of trouble-free service.
