What's the best performance car for less than $30k? Comparing the 2015 Subaru WRX, the 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost, the 2015 Volkswagen GTI, and the 2015 Scion FRS (Subaru BRZ). All of these cars can be purchased with six-speed manual transmissions with engines producing 200+ horsepower and all under $30,000. So which is the best option to choose?
