Are you in for some speed? Than go check some other post on our website cause this is not about speed! On the contrary! Today we are ditching the fast lane, turning our heads from all those Lamborghinis, and going into the sweet slow and steady cars.

Most cars these days are zippier than ever, even the once-notorious sloth, the Prius, can scoot! But hey, some folks just prefer a more relaxed ride.  This list is for those who wonder, "What's the slowest car you can actually buy?" based on real-world tests, not manufacturer bragging rights.

Slowest Accelerating Cars

So, who takes the crown (or, maybe the turtle trophy) for slowest new car in 2024? The mighty... Mitsubishi Mirage! Clocking in at a leisurely 12.8 seconds to reach 60 mph, this little guy is all about the scenic route.

Slowest Accelerating Cars

Rounding out the list are a bunch of everyday cars that might surprise you. Don't worry, none are so slow they'll cause a traffic jam (probably), but they prioritize fuel efficiency or practicality over neck-snapping acceleration.
