Im soon to sell my 2007 Mustang v6 convertible and i need some advice on helping me choose my next ride.

ive been looking at 08 mustang gt's but im starting to want something with better mpg and maybe a little more room, but still sporty and fun.

i need something quick thats also comfortable for longer distance trips. i really like hatchbacks, just nothing massive.

Looking for:

4+ seats

210+ hp

0-60 under 7 seconds

manual transmission

24+ mpg

good handling

under 100k miles or new

under 20k new/under 15k used

Ive looked into: Mitsubishi Lancer evo 8, Honda civic hatch, Ford focus, Ford Mustang Ecoboost/08 gt, Hyundai Velocitor and open to everything

Looking for pointers and suggestions

Thanks

    You are going to want a VW GTI, preferably a Mk7 (2015-Present)- You should be able to get a 4 door 2015+ GTI close to 15k at this point.

    Alternatively a Honda Civic Si is probably going to be close to your budget too. A Ford Focus ST used should also be in budget.

    Likely about right, there. Those are some rather finite requirements and narrow down your pool quite a bit, particularly with the MT (not that I disagree with it!). Consider, though, that with the requirements you laid out, you're not likely to get substantially better mileage than what you see now from your Mustang.

    GTI is a good suggestion, and 30mpg, to boot.

    Heck, putting aside hatchbacks, you could easily fit a 3-series into your requirements.

    GTI or Civic, I'd avoid the Focus, lots of issues.

    GTI gets my vote also. It has a nice interior and exterior and I'm sure it is fun to drive.
