If you're in the market for a Coupé it's well worth looking at the Audi TT Coupé, but the BMW 2 Series Coupé is cheaper, stylish and has substance, too, including its relatively practical and smart-looking interior.

Trim: M Sport
M Sport trim only ups the ante over Sport by getting 18in wheels, an M Sport braking system, sports suspension, half cloth, half Alcantara seats and an upgraded stereo.

This 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel is a pleasure to drive, with 0-62mph in 8.3sec (automatic version), good mid-range pull and low running costs — over 50mpg on the WLTP combined cycle and relatively low CO2 emissions. If you're considering one over the petrol versions and you're a company car driver, don't forget to factor in the four per cent diesel benefit-in-kind surcharge, though.
