Mazda 6

The Miata isn't the only Mazda that's fun to drive. The company's entire lineup offers enjoyable driving experiences no matter what sort of format you're looking for. The Mazda6 mid-size sedan is a perfect example.

Honda Fit

The Honda Fit has always been a light, tossable car with plenty of practicality. Anyone who sits behind the wheel of one of these and takes it on a back road will be grinning ear-to-ear, whether they're a car person or not.

Alfa Romeo Giulia

The Giulia Quadrifoglio may get all of the attention, but it turns out the the four-cylinder Giulia is fun to drive as well. It still has those good looks and super-quick steering, as well as a good transmission and adequate power.

The BMW 2 Series is the least-expensive BMW you can buy. That makes it a great starting place for buyers who are new to the brand and don't have the budget for a nicer luxury car. But whether they're buying it because it's cheap or because it's cute, it's also fun to drive. After a few months behind the wheel, new owners are going to start to understand why enthusiasts love driving.

<p>The Fiesta ST is a ridiculously fun car to drive, but the great thing about the Ford Fiesta is that it's sporty regardless of what version you buy. We're especially fans of <a href="http://quizcards.info/new-cars/first-drives/reviews/a3980/drives-2014-ford-fiesta-ecoboost/" target="_blank">the 1.0-liter Ecoboost Fiesta</a>. Ford bills it as an economy car, but what a lot of buyers won't realize is that it's both fuel efficient and fun. Before they know it, they'll be hooked. </p>

<p>Compared to the outgoing Civic, <a href="http://quizcards.info/new-cars/first-drives/a26899/2016-honda-civic-first-drive/" target="_blank">the new one is better</a> by leaps and bounds. It's still a Honda, and people are still going to buy it in droves because of the badge on the hood. It will probably still be reliable, but it's also been injected with a dose of fun that we didn't expect. On a winding back road, even mainstream buyer won't be able to resist the new Civic's sporty charms.</p>

The Jeep Wrangler is one of the few cars that everyone loves regardless of how little they care about cars. Most of these buyers have no intentions of tackling the Rubicon, but the Jeep community draws them in. Before they know it, the doors are off, and they're combing through forums late at night, trying to decide which lift kit they need.

<p>Sadly, Mazda has held off on a new version of the Mazdaspeed3, but even without hot-hatch power, <a href="http://quizcards.info/new-cars/first-drives/reviews/a4934/performance-tests-first-drives-2014-mazda-3/" target="_blank">the Mazda3 is a driver's car</a>. It's engaging in a way competitors like the Hyundai Elantra and Toyota Corolla aren't, and it can even hold its own against cars like the Audi A3.</p>

For a compact sedan, the Honda Civic is pretty sporty, but anyone who buys the Mazda3 will find that it's actually even more fun to drive. It has an impressive interior and a great design, but when the roads get curvy, the Mazda3 is more than happy to play. For buyers who previously thought driving was a chore, this is one of the best cars to convince them otherwise.

<p>Much like the Wrangler, <a href="http://quizcards.info/new-cars/first-drives/a26202/first-drive-2015-mini-john-cooper-works-hardtop/" target="_blank">the Mini Cooper</a> is extremely popular with people who normally couldn't care less about cars. It's cute and cool, and you can also get one for a little more than $20k, so it's fairly affordable. The base three-cylinder Mini is sneakily fun to drive, too. Add in the passionate Mini community, and it's hard for new Mini owners not to become enthusiasts.</p>

The Juke's unconventional design took us all by surprise when it when on sale, but it turned out to be more than just a subcompact CUV with a weird design. The Juke is actually a lot of fun to drive, and it has the kind of character that a lot of cars are lacking these days. Buyers might not expect it, but before long it'll feel like something's missing when they drive normal, soulless cars.

<p>Subaru is another company with huge following that draws people in. The WRX is a little too brash to attract a lot of non-enthusiasts, but <a href="http://quizcards.info/car-shows/new-york-auto-show/news/a7658/2015-subaru-outback/" target="_blank">the Outback is the perfect</a> for the job. One day your friend buys an Outback so he can take his dog with him to go hiking, and the next thing you know, he won't shut up about how great Subarus are. Maybe his next car will be a BRZ or a WRX. You never know.</p>

<p>The GTI is the foil to the WRX. It's subtle, quiet, comfortable, unassuming, and could easily pass as a regular commuter car. Unlike a commuter car, though, it's more than willing to hustle when you ask it to. If you need something practical but want something sporty, the GTI offers the best of both worlds.</p>

Volkswagen GTI

It's easy to get sold on the stylish nature of the Golf and the practicality of a four-door hatchback. Pair that extra power you get over the regular Golf and the nice interior, and you have a heck of a nice car for not a lot of money. You also have one of the best performance cars you can buy for less than $30k. Even someone who thought they only wanted it to get from point A to point B is going to have a blast behind the wheel of a GTI.
