Horsepower has always been a universal indicator of a car's performance. So, let's find out what are the cars that offers the lowest cost per bhp!
To a car enthusiast, every detail in the specification sheet of a car is important as they all play a part in painting a complete picture of the car in point. To most people, however, information such as 'double wishbones suspension', 'Carbon fibre monocoque' or 'gasoline direct injection' are just technical jargons that serve little purpose. Horsepower, however, is much simpler to understand.

As the term suggests, the origin of this unit of measurement came from the desire to compare the output of an engine to that of horses (which were used to complete tasks such as pulling carriages in the past). So, more horsepower equals to more energy which is surely a plus point! Our aim here is to find the cars that give you your metaphorical horses at the lowest price point, which will no doubt means the best deal (because, clearly, power is the only thing that matters).

Here are the top 20 new cars with the cheapest horsepower.

Interesting list. 

 

Actually, from a depreciation pa/hp, both the Stinger ($47.1) and the Cupra ($47.2) appear to be more "cost effective" than the VRS 245 ($48.1). 

 

Also, good to note that all 3 are cheaper than the previous hp/$ champion Forester XT. 

 

I suppose the i30N will also be on the list once the pricing / OMV is confirmed. 

 

That said, Maxus does stick out like a sore thumb at #4  [rolleyes] ... For alignment with the intents of people who would reference such a list for carbuying decisions, may be useful to filter by hp >200 (to eliminate cars like Cerato, Elantra) and perhaps by weight (to eliminate outliers like the Maxus) ?

If they can factor in BHP/tonne that will be interesting to see how the ranking change.

yes they should filter out those below 200bhp.

If suv, it should be forester or harrier turbo for most value for money

Interesting discussion but should filter out according to category,

 

E.g $/HP for SUV, MPV, Sedan etc.

Agree but from the list we can see easily whats the best in market that suits our need.

For example for suv theres forester and harrier
For sedan/hatch its octavia or stinger
For mpv can consider maxus etc

Please help to do so and also do remind to minus away the parf value from the total cost to show the truth value. For example a XT might show at the higer ranking but if one take into the considersation of their pathetic OMV, it’s ranking may drop as compare with others

Using depreciation pa/hp, you can see the effect. As mentioned, Stinger is cheaper than VRS, Cupra, Forester as XT by that measure. For what it's worth.

Depreciation might be inaccurate cause some cars offer more discount or overtrade and doesnt reflect on depreciation from list price

Fair point and I totally agree.

But that's an issue whether you use total price or the depreciation pa. My point was that the depreciation pa number takes into account scrap value effects.

Its a discount but they let the discount add into your existing trade in car so that you get more cash for downpayment and list price remain high so you can take more loan
At a time it makes you feel you get good bargain cause they take in your car higher
And with more loan car dealer earn more commission from bank

Car loan and housing loan wide difference in calculation. And hence alot of people dont understand why 1.88 or 2.55% makes a huge difference.

 

The overall car price that is bought shoot up. And hence many buy full cash, because the savings is afew thousand dollars.

I tend to agree yet disagree a little.
 
I have a short run with a MK7 GTI. I've even written a review sometime back and all I can say is the MK7 GTI is full of tech and driving aids that it make boost your driving confidence to a level that you think you are a good driver. But after a sweet honeymoon you will realise that you are just a mediocre daily driver like any others cos anyone can drive a GTI. You don't drive the MK7 GTI, it drives you.
 
As for the I30N? Different story. It doesn't nearly display the same amount of tech the GTI offers. With the manual gearbox, it demands the driver out of the drivers to command this steed. I didn't write a review for the I30N cos I felt I wasn't qualified and test drives are too short. I struggled to get used to the sensitivity of the clutch, stalling the car a fair bit with my limited experience in manual cars. But it was an out-of-the-world experience and a reality check on my driving abilities that rocked myself with self doubt and dodge down to a more subdued confidence. IMHO it is a beast by its own standards that no other car of this category, not even the GTI can match..
 
I would have ask my SE to shut up and take my money, but buying a car in SG is not so simple as I couldn't to get consensus from my more rational stakeholder who is done to noisy hot hatches (for now), let alone one that pops and bangs on WOT.
