It goes without saying that we are all about cars at Pure Rally. The cars that get us to and from the rallies, the cars we take to the rallies and cars we just love to look at. For this week’s blog, we’ve put together a few of our favourite superminis which would be perfect to rally with. But just remember whether your car is worth £500 or £500,000 it’s all about sharing a passion for driving. It really doesn’t matter what you drive! One of the things our rally drivers love is seeing other people’s cars (did someone say envy...?)
1. The Ford Focus ST
Let’s start with a classic and reliable car. If you’d read our past blog on why Fords make great rally cars then you’ll know all about why we love Fords at our rallies. The Focus ST is known as one of Britain’s best-selling superminis and it’s not hard to see why. With a 2.0 litre engine it’s designed for pure driving performance and is great fun. The ST is one of our favourites as it combines that everyday practicality with simple luxury; a combination that is very hard to find on some forecourts.
2. The Mazda 2 GT Sport
Costs aside, the Mazda 2 GT is a great small car and would be perfect for a rally with us. It is available in 90ps GT OR 115PS GT Sport with 16 inch alloys so it is worth the additional costs that might occur when compared to the likes of the Focus. The responsive handling on this car is also fantastic with its SKYACTIV technology.
3. The Volkswagen Golf R
The Volkswagen Golf R is certainly a popular car and what makes this car so special is its performance. It’s extremely quick and great fun to drive compared to the GTI. Not forgetting the reputation of the VW brand in terms of re-sale value.
4. The Audi A3
The sister car to the Golf R. A classy, robust and all-round quality car. Not forgetting how enjoyable it is to drive with its high-powered engine range. We love the A3 on our rallies. It’s all about a premium driving experience and a little bit of luxury on the road. I mean, who doesn’t love a bit of luxury?
5. The Mercedes Benz A45 AMG
A perfect car for rallying – its four wheel drive and powerful engine makes it great for long distances and it has an impressive straight-line speed. Not forgetting its luxurious interior and exceptional performance time – a definite favourite of ours!
