One of the quickest and most comfortable cars you can quite easily pick up for less than 10k is the Ford TX5 Turbo/Mazda 626 Turbo (or the two-door Mazda MX-6 Turbo derivative). For all the time you're sitting in traffic or toddling along at the speed limit (and, let's face it, we can't be on full boost all the time!) the TX5/626/MX-6 keeps you comfortable with its supportive seats, tasteful trim, electric glass and all the usuals. As far as we can determine, most came equipped with a power glass sunroof as well - all very pleasant stuff.

Image

And performance? Well, the 12-valve, SOHC, 2.2-litre turbo engine is set up as a bit of a stump puller - it comes on boost quite early and winds out to a relatively mild 108kW at just 4300 rpm. Note that output falls to just 100kW when running on normal ULP. Standard 0 - 100 km/h is in the low 8s in manual form when running PULP. Perhaps due to the early and rapid increase in boost - and therefore torque - the TX5/626 can wheelspin and torque steer, but it shouldn't overly surprise anyone that is currently driving a FWD day-to-day.
If you want a comfortable, quick daily driver the 2.2 TX5/626/MX-6 is hard to pass with prices starting at just $5000. Not many owners have bothered to up the power output, but there's no reason you can't get good gains from the usual turbocar mods - just make sure you put on a grippy set of tyres otherwise you'll get nowhere fast!


all tx5s like mine are made in japan the sister isthe 626 and mx6 2 door
they also made a AWD version
