What we are looking for

  • Think of coupés and you’ll probably picture head-turning, sleekly designed cars that probably can’t fit a lot of shopping in the boot but will definitely stand out in the supermarket car park. Yes, style is as important a factor as any in this class, but to be a What Car? award winner, the car has to offer a lot more besides.
  • The best coupés blend style with substance, offering sharp performance and handling with good ride comfort and enough practicality to make them easy to live with. Some might seem expensive, but the best ones show themselves to be great-value packages, even if the list price seems a little excessive at first glance.
