With Father’s Day celebrated this month, here are two inexpensive automobiles that guarantee dads will be grinning ear to ear.

 

2019 Genesis G70

For the past few years, Genesis has truly claimed its place in the industry as a prestigious luxury brand at highly competitive pricing. The smooth, attractive G70—coming in two different turbocharged engines—provides amazing value, with the Prestige 2.0T starting at $34,900 for all its pampering amenities, including Nappa leather interior, a Surround View monitor, responsive handling, and generous warranty package. The 3.3T edition terrorizes the streets with 365 horses packed under the hood; multiple driving modes seamlessly customize the riding experience. Ultimately, this sedan is highly recommended.

2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring

Finding a manual transmission is becoming more difficult in new automobiles due to the popularity of paddle shifters. Sports car traditionalists seeking a more organic driving experience should consider the Mazda MX-5 Miata Grand Touring complete with a cloth top that converts in seconds. Its reasonable gas mileage averaging 29 miles per gallon, responsive SKYACTIV-G 2.0 engine at 181 horsepower, sleek frame, 17-inch alloy wheels, and trustworthy reliability solidly qualify this roadster as a long-term investment.
