8: Eagle Talon
Why mention the Eagle Talon? Well, this corporate clone of the Mistubishi Eclipse had its own set of unique features that are worth mentioning. First and foremost, the Talon did a great job of giving drivers excitement. With the AWD configuration and the factory turbocharger, this sports car was a lot faster than more expensive models. The subtle styling and the addition of some luxury features made the Talon a compact worth considering.
Even as the Eagle brand was winding down the Talon managed to get a fair amount of love from the automotive press. The car had everything that you’d expect from a sports car for a fraction of the price. Very few sports cars have come close to offering what the Talon was able to offer in its final years.
