The Mini has electric steering, and is known to have one of the best steering feels in its class. The Toyota GT86 is also praised for the steering, which is also electric.
My F20 has the basic (electric) steering, and I am very pleased with it. I take the car to track days, and I need to feel how much grip there is available. The steering is also rather quick when I need to correct slides.
