I have driven most of these cars and I can assure you that when they are in their best engine conditions, they are quick off the ground than other cars we have on sale in the market.

Fastest Accelerating Used Cars in Nigeria

1. Honda Civic 2005 - 2009

The Honda Civic from 2005 to 2009 was the car I used in learning how to drive and I thought that was how all cars accelerated till I started driving other cars.


The swifty Honda Civic at the front

The Civic uses either a 1.8 litre or 2.0-litre engine and they either come in a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic transmission with smaller steering than other cars.

I am sure its the VTEC engine of this car combined with its lightweight that makes it accelerate very fast and it is so fun to drive as long as the engine is in a good condition.

If you are looking for a cheap fun and fast car to drive, the price of a used 2005 - 2009 Honda Civic in Nigeria will make you happy.

2. Subaru Legacy

A lot of people will tell you not to buy a Subaru and it is out of sheer bandwagon mentality. It is not like they have driven Subaru cars and it failed to perform or was unreliable, the brand is just scarce and it makes people scared of buying.


Nigerian mechanics will tell you not to buy this car but my advice is go for it

The Subaru Legacy is an all-wheel-drive car that you will enjoy driving so much especially if you buy the GT version that comes with a turbocharger.

The Subaru Legacy with its all-wheel-drive technology makes it sprint quickly even when the road conditions are bad like we encounter a lot in Nigeria.

The base version uses a powerful 2.5 litre 4 cylinder engine that delivers a decent level of performance.

3. Hyundai Veloster

The Hyundai Veloster is a 2 door sports Coupe by Hyundai since 2011 that employed a DCT transmission to make it shift faster and this gave the Veloster a place in the fast accelerating car list.

4. BMW 335i 2009-2012

The BMW 335i for sale is the perfect definition of a sleeper car. A sleeper car is a car that looks very normal but drives like a proper sports cars.

The E90 BMW 335i uses a 6 cylinder engine and a turbocharger that makes it sprint from 0 to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds and as a BMW, it has a superior steering ability aka handling and impressive ride stability at high speeds.


The lowkey fast BMW car

This is a car that all your friends would mistake for a Ferrari once you start driving on the road. it comes in a 6-Speed manual or 6 Speed-automatic transmission.

A lot of people will tell you that BMW has a lot of issues which is why I always advise that buyers should be ready for a premium car maintenance culture if you are about to own a car like the BMW 335i, which is why people are scared to buy BMW cars in Nigeria.

5. Nissan 350Z

I owned a 2006 Nissan 350Z for 2 months and it was like the best period of my life in that year because of how fast it accelerates.

The car, however, is a 2 door and 2 seat sports coupe that is expected to be fast but I have driven other 2 door sports coupe and they don't move fast like the 350Z.


One of the best 2 door cars Nissan has ever built

It comes in either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission and paired to a 3.5-litre V6 engine that is also found on the Infiniti G35 Coupe.
This car also looks very unique though I had a problem with the rear visibility.

If you are looking for a fast accelerating 2 door sports car that is cheap, the Nissan 350Z should be your first pick.
