BuzzFeed’s new “Worth It” series asks whether certain products or services are worth the money, in a nutshell. Whether it be cars, watches, tattoos or suits, they find out which products are really worth spending money on. In this new video from Worth It, they ask which car is the most “worth it” — the Toyota Prius for $25,000, the BMW M4 Competition Package for $100,000 or the Lamborghini Aventador for $500,000.
First up is the Prius, which is a car whose name can make car enthusiasts nauseous. For around $25,000, you can get a decently equipped Prius, with its weird looks, hybrid powertrain and impressive efficiency. It has all of the modern tech anyone could ask for, gets over 50 mpg regularly, has impressive passenger space and is even decently quick for a hybrid. The downside? It’s a Prius.
Next up, they go to our friends at Century West BMW to take a look at a Daytona Violent BMW M4 Competition Package kitted out with M Performance parts. This specific M4 wears a sticker price of $100,000 but they can be had for about a 3 Series cheaper than that. The folks at Century West really like to spec some wild M cars. For that money, you get 444 hp from a 3.0 liter twin-turbocharged I6 engine, a carbon fiber roof and a 0-60 mph time of under four seconds. If you’re into performance cars, the M4 Comp Pack is an good value, as it combines impressive performance, great everyday usability and the ability to take track abuse on the weekends. It’s a very versatile performance car.
Lastly, they test a Lamborghini Aventador at a shocking $503,000. They weren’t allowed to drive it, for obvious reason, but they did take rides in it and were really impressive with its performance, style, presence and aspirational qualities. They do end up driving a Lamborghini Huracan on a track at a performance driving program, though, and find it thrilling.
In the end, they ask which car is most worth it and the two hosts both end up choosing the Prius. It’s so much cheaper than the other two and still offers a ton of car. Though, if you’re into performance cars, there’s no way you’d buy a Prius. I’ll throw a fourth option into the mix that beats everything, BuzzFeed — Mazda MX-5.
