Two Cars at the Opposite Ends for Consumers

The Bugatti

The Kia Rio

Buying a car involved so many things to everyone- style, economy, comfort, speed, getting the most for your money, color etc. Any car or motorcycle will get you there, from point A to B to C in decent comfort. You can only go so fast on any road before getting pulled over- that is usually not more than 80 mph.

The Bugatti Veyron is an awesome looking car with a quad turbocharged 8.0 liter DOHC, 64 valve, seven speed, all wheel drive car. It has 1200 hp at 6,400 rpm and gets 11\14 MPG. It moves to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds and cruises at 210 mph while its top speed is 254 mph. The cost is a cool $2.5 million.

The Kia Rio is America's lowest priced car at $13,600. Even spending $17,700, will up the ante to a SX model with a 1.6 liter engine, six speed, alloy wheels, a 138 hp engine giving you a 28\34 MPG with plenty of pick up. The Kia will provide you with 13 cubic feet of cargo, the Bugatti 3-4 cu.ft.

For most readers, the Kia will be the more practicable value in daily driving, while the Bugatti is exotic and while they may want to own one, they know it would be impracticable in daily life. Making the use of its awesome speed would seldom occur, parking it anywhere would be worrisome because of theft, or those who look at it. It is like any expensive sport car, you worry about it when you are not there. The Bugatti is a for the very rich who have nothing more to do with $2.5 million. When they tire of it, another problem is selling it. You just cannot put an ad in the paper. Car repairs for it are another problem.

It seems owning this type of car creates more problems than they are worth. Owning the Kia is is quite the opposite, just like the price difference.

Good hub and very interesting comparison. I love the Bugatti but alas it will have to be the Rio for me. Even if I could afford the Bugatti...I would be afraid of getting it scratched so would probably keep it permanently in the garage. Awful expensive ornament!!

Exactly my point, even with many less expensive cars, you have this issue.
