Some manufacturers like to describe certain cars as ‘four-door couples’ but most people still see a coupe as a traditional two-door sports car that’s specifically designed for two people, even though it may have rear seats. I have decided to compile a list of my favourite coupes in the current market.
First is the Used Peugeot RCZ. It’s not like anything else from the French brand. It’s a great looking coupe and has the handling to match its looks. The RCZ is a real head-turning car with its stylish, futuristic looks, not just this but it’s a really great car to drive, comfortable and relatively cheap to run and competitively priced. The RCZ’s biggest rival is the Audi TT, but it’s cheaper than its premium rival and feels more spacious too. As you expect the back seats are tiny and can’t really fit two adults and it’s a shame that it’s not as prestigious as an Audi TT.
The Used Volkswagen Scirocco is another competitor for the Peugeot RCZ and the Audi TT, although it has a more upright body shape meaning it’s more practical than both. It may not be able to match either on looks, but as a car the beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Volkswagen has developed a name for itself as a builder of great interiors and the Scirocco keeps it intact with a very practical manner. Like the other two cars mentioned the Scirocco continues with the uncomfortable small rear seats and also the boot is quick tricky to access.
The Second Hand Audi TT which has been mentioned earlier is another favourite coupe of mine. The new shape has been around since 2006 and even the second-generation remains a beautiful piece of design and it still drives really well too. The TT isn’t the most practical on the road but few cars can match its blend of prestige, quality and comfort. The TT is also surprisingly cheap to run for this level of performance and driving thrills. The only downfalls with this car are the fact that you see so many of them on the road these days that they’re not as rare as they once were and as mentioned cramped rear seats and boots.
Finally the Used BMW 2 Series Coupe makes the list. The 2 series is based on the 1 series hatchback and gets a slightly restyled front end compared to the hatchback. Although the coupe is only a 4 seater the boot than the hatchback. The coupe has sharper driving dynamics making it more fun to drive, with a selection of engines from the Second Hand BMW 1 series that offer a choice of performance or economy. If I could pick faults with this car it would probably be that it has quite noisy diesel engines and that it only has 4 seats but compared to the other 3 then its definitely more spacious for rear seat passengers.
