deals of the week

The Toronto Auto Show featured big Canadian reveals this year including the 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera, 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia, 2017 Audi R8, and other high-performance vehicles (see more here on Auto Show deals). While shiny new sports cars attract a lot of attention at auto shows, their high sticker prices often place them far out of reach for the average consumer.

That said, it is a common misconception that performance and affordability are incompatible.

Our deals this week feature cars with acceleration times from 0-100 km/h of less than 6.6 seconds, and cost less than $35,000.
