More thrills around the same price of a Porsche Macan R4, if you don’t want an SUV

This one grabs attention everywhere it goes, thanks to that neverending hood and roadster stance. Its 5.1 second 0-100kmph time comes from a 3-litre, 6-cylinder TwinPower Turbo petrol engine that makes 306 horses and 400Nm—guaranteed pinned to the seat acceleration! Downside? There’s room for only two people here and you’ll have to be careful going over speed bumps. At `78.88 lakh (ex-showroom, Chennai). Details: bmw.in

Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG
Who doesn’t like a cute little sedan with enough performance packed in to give mean-looking sportscars a run for their money? It looks pretty much like a regular CLA, but gets a 1991cc, turbo-charged, 4-cylinder petrol engine that is handbuilt by AMG. Now imagine 381 horses and 475Nm powering a car that’s as light as 1,650 kilos. Thanks to that, this four-seater tops 100kmph in 4.2 seconds. At `69.71 lakh (ex-showroom, Chennai).

Audi S5 Sportback
Here’s another sleeper—a regular-looking Audi neatly camouflaging mind-numbing performance under a Sportback body. Powering the S5 is a 3-litre, turbo-charged petrol engine making 329 horses and 440Nm which translates to a 0-100kmph time of 5.1 seconds. Then there’s that 7-speed DSG transmission that is slick and fast, and of course, the threatening roar that is unmistakably of a V6. Sleepers don’t get any better. At 67.72 lakh (ex-showroom, Chennai). Details: audi.in
