Our Top 3 Hot Four-Wheel Drive Cars For Under £5,000

At the Big Car Buyer, we are always looking to buy used vehicles. Sports and prestige cars are what we love to buy. Cars generally get cheaper as time goes on depending on what the appreciation is on the brand of the vehicle. We’ve looked at inexpensive rear-wheel-drive cars and looked at what you can purchase with just £5,000.

Take a look at our top 3 choices;

Audi S3

The Audi S3 might not be quite the Porsche standard but can easily keep up with your fast sports cars. The earlier model produced 210bhp from a 20-valve turbocharged engine, then later rose to 221bhp. The 0-62mph takes an average of 6.8 seconds in the less powerful versions or even a fast 6.6 seconds for the later cars. 

Subaru Impreza WRX

The Subaru Impreza is the bad boy of them all and this list wouldn’t be complete without it. The second-generation Impreza WRX STI costing below £3000 would be our choice. You could spend a little more and get the facelift version which also had a slight increase in power from its boxer-four – 221bhp up from 215bhp.

VW Golf MkIV R32

The Volkswagen Golf has been around for decades and Golf R32 is the flagship of the Golf MkIV range. The R32 MkIV edition was a stunning vehicle, and as prices are around £5k border. The R32 is timed at 6.4 seconds to 60mph, and while the R32 doesn’t deliver the same thump in the back as a turbocharged equivalent you’ll struggle to find an engine with so much character in any hot hatchback.
