Power is great. Like really great. But sometimes it can throw an entire car out of balance. What car would be better with less power?
For this, we just have to look at our recent test of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. With 707 horsepower, it's just bonkers. Bonkers.
But our man Damon who tested the Hellcat said that he had way more fun in the V6 Challenger than the Hellcat on track, because the Hellcat was nearly unusable. On the street, lower power, like the 1.0 liter Fiesta, lets you ring it out without actually breaking any laws at all. Because it isn't fast enough to break any laws. Can you imagine a Fiesta 1.0 with the suspension, appearance, and character of the Fiesta ST? Call it something like the Fiesta ST Jr. and you'd have a winner on your hands.
What say you? What can could become better with less power?
