Need for Speed Unbound A-class cars

A-class cars include everything from hot hatches like the Ford Focus RS to the lightweight Lotus Exige S and the Rover Range Rover SVR super SUV. But what is the best A-class car in Need for Speed Unbound?
Best A-Class car in Need for Speed Unbound
Factoring performance and handling, the 2010 BMW M3 Coupe is the best A-Class car in Need for Speed Unbound.
By default, it has road traction and neutral handling, striking the perfect balance between Grip and Drift. Its RWD layout also makes it fun to drive and easy to drift.
Because A-class cars are slower than the top tiers, they are better suited to drift setups. Drifting the lower-tier cars as often as possible in races will help you earn more nitrous boost in races and leave other drivers in your dust.
That said, the BMW M3 Coupe is no slouch in the performance department either, with a 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds and a 179-mph top speed. It also costs $84,000, making it a performance bargain.
How to unlock 2010 BMW M3 Coupe in Need for Speed Unbound
