Fun to drive first :

What is the « #FuntoDrive Board » ? It’s a ranking where all the modern cars we have tested are rated according to the fun to drive experience and only to the fun to drive experience.

Each car reviewed will be added to the board after the publication of the article. Scores are from 0 to 100 and sometimes more, so we will see where we would be driven.

Let the fun begin!


#1 – 2018 Jaguar F-Type SVR

#FunToDrive cars score :  96/100

With the F-Type SVR Jaguar created an incredible car probably one of its best! First of all stunning to look at and luckily it’s also brilliant to drive. The clear family link with the E-Type is a great thing for every classic Jaguar lover. Above all, the V8 of the feline is magnificent, and it sounds amazing. To sum up, this is the Jaguar we’ve been waiting for ages!

#2 – 2018 Ford Mustang GT

#FunToDrive cars score :  93/100

This car is a real surprise for us. It’s not a dragster car but an incredibly polyvalent car. Actually, it’s the essence of fun to drive. It’s powerful, makes a great sound, it has a manual gearbox and it’s affordable. What else can you ask for? Who would have thought one day read that from us? It is a miracle! Why not 100/100? Perfection is hard to reach.

#3 – 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C

#FunToDrive cars score :  92/100

Nothing is perfect but this Alfa Romeo is close to perfection. Not because you can use and enjoy it every day but because it has all you can expect from a fun to drive little Italian sport car: a soul.

#4 – 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio

#FunToDrive cars score :  90/100

It’s definitely a fun car, however there is only two useful modes : Normal mode to avoid buying a gas station and Race mode to have a lot of fun. Any others modes are totally useless because quiet, gas guzzling, assisted, therefore frustrating. (Yes yes, perhaps All weather mode too if you have unbelievably bad weather condition). But considering the main modes, this car is uncompromising and we appreciate it. If you are a kinesiologist in charge to drop off kids at school in time, that’s the perfect car for you. You will be the fastest and coolest dad ever, and your kids will have the most muscular neck of the playground.

#4 – 2018 Maserati Ghibli S Q4

#FunToDrive cars score :  89/100

Beautiful cars and especially sedans will always have something magical, no offense to SUV fans. A great engine, a light weight body, a low center of gravity and a luxury touch: that’s the recipe of an awesome berline. Maserati Ghibli S Q4 has a strong soul thanks to a bewitching V6 (even if not naturally-aspirated). The best place is behind the steering wheel. First, from this point of view you can’t see it’s ugly trunk. Second, you can drive and appreciate all the comfortable and dynamism of this family diva. Only damper, some finishing touches are not at the level but all is forgiven when we hear its divine exhaust sound. It was a big pleasure like a delizioso and comforting pasta dish.

#5 – 2018 Renault Clio R.S. 18

#FuntoDrive cars score :   85/100

Because it is a very versatile little rocket but it needs to be challenged to be really fun. You live in a big city? You want to blend in? You want to burn rubber without burning your savings? And take revenge on your driving-school? Answered yes to one of the above : it is the car you need.

#6 – 2018 Volvo XC40 T5

Volvo XC40

#FunToDrive cars score :  72/100

This small SUV surprised us on the road with a good comportment. It’s also good looking and affordable, so what more can we ask for? A funnier car with a more expressive engine perhaps thanks to the Polestar touch would be awesome. Thanks for asking.

#7 – 2018 Volvo XC60 T8

#FuntoDrive cars score :   70/100

Why? Because of the hybrid power delivery which makes the car responsive at any rpm thanks to the electric assistance. What else? The pneumatic suspensions are transforming the car and this is a must to have.

#8 – 2018 Mercedes-Benz E400

#FunToDrive cars score :  69/100

Luxury and sedan is always a good match. In this SUV time it feels good to see a big sedan. A good engine, and a lot of confort is the recipe of the E400. Nothing wrong about it, it’s a good (family) car. It could have a bit more of character and this would makes it one of the best car. Thanks the lords, because AMG exists and they make an E63. Even better? Choose the E63 AMG coupe.

#9 – 2018 Dodge Challenger GT

#FuntoDrive cars score :   67/100

The orange suits it so well and the 70’s look of the car is awesome. Also its polyvalence is pretty impressive. Why not 75 or 80? Mainly, it lacks power and it cannot do donuts because of the 4 wheel drive.

#10 – 2017 Peugeot 208 GTI

#FuntoDrive cars score :   62/100

Yes the 208 GTI is a good car but not really a fun car. It’s not enough expressive for the driver but also for the passengers. Please make a new car more beautiful, extrem, noisy and communicative. Let’s free the lion and make a wow car again!

#10 – 2019 Toyota RAV4 4WD

#FuntoDrive cars score :   62/100

New Toyota RAV4 4WD is a surprising car. At home in town and in the woods, you can easily drive kids at school and go to the mountain for fishing all the day. It’s a playful and balanced car with an amazing turning angle and a terrific adventurer look. I would even go so far as to say the Toyota RAV4 all-wheel drive is fun to drive, but only off-road. Well, the only problem for the RAV4 is highway and country section to go out into the wilderness. In this case, you see all its faults as weight, blurry front axle and noisy hybrid engine, a bit like an oldschool RAV4 XA10 at the time.

#12 – 2018 Volvo XC90 T6

#FunToDrive cars score :  60/100

Because it’s a good SUV but it misses a little craziness. As we mention in our review buying this car is a reasonable choice more than a heart choice. However it’s still beautiful, confortable… to sum up it’s a Volvo!

#13 – 2019 Dodge Ram 1500 Sport

#FunToDrive cars score :  50/100

In this SUVs time even the trucks start to change and become more premium. A good V8, and more and more confort is the recipe of the RAM1500. It could have a more of character to make it a real beast. It surprises us with its outstanding capabilities but it’s not really fun to drive as it’s big and heavy.

#14 – 2019 Fiat 500X

#FunToDrive cars score :  46/100

Not really, it’s a daily small family car but it has good potential! It looks like a wild mini SUV so give it the what he and we want. Please make a fun version of the cool Fiat 500X.
