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.

get the best price

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.

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.
