When you think of cars most one first envisions speed and how fast you can get going. There are individuals who don’t care about speed and the excessive power that is hidden under the hood of their vehicle.
Below are 10 cars that we would consider the tortoise to the Hare.
10. Lexus CT 200h Premium
This Lexus stands out not for its sleek lines and stylish exterior, but for the 11 seconds it takes to go from 0-60 MPH. This high end hybrid looks good but won’t be speeding past you off the line.

While this small beauty is nice to look at, fashionable and is affordable, it does take a full 11 seconds to go from 0-60 MPH to hit full acceleration.
