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.get the best price
Features include 17in alloy wheels, air-con, BMW’s 6.5in colour screen iDrive infotainment system with DAB radio, sat-nav and Bluetooth, LED headlights, rear parking sensors and automatic lights and wipers.
This is the 134bhp, three-cylinder, 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine from the Mini Cooper. It's not as sparkly in the heavier 2 Series, but still performs well enough if you rev it out and it's by far the cheapest to buy. Also, company car drivers won't have to pay the four per cent benefit-in-kind surcharge, which will make your monthly tax palatable.
