Review

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. The diesel engines are all great performers and cheap to run (if a little gruff), while the M240i's six-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine is both sonorous and seriously quick.

Trim: Sport

Sport models focus on delivering a more aggressive look inside and out on top of SE’s equipment, getting different 17in alloy wheels, ambient interior lighting, a sports steering wheel and sports seats, among other sporty details. What extra you spend initially, you'll make back with stronger resale values.

Engine: 218d

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.
