Not everyone wants five doors and not everyone needs a practical hatchback. So for those buying with a little more heart than head there’s the coupé way: the BMW 2 Series Coupé to be precise, claiming to offer a premium experience to go with those rakish looks.
Like the Convertible version of the 2 Series, the Coupé is based on the 1 Series hatchback and benefits from the same range of punchy but efficient engines. There’s a range of three and four-cylinder petrols and diesels, with the mighty six-cylinder petrol M240i further up the price list. If that’s not enough, there’s the even more powerful and focused M2, which you can read about in full by clicking here.
Battling the 2 Series Coupé for sales is the Mercedes-Benz CLA, which looks the part and is called a coupé but actually has four doors. Meanwhile, more expensive versions of the 2 Series also compete with cars including the Audi A5 Coupé.
Let our review guide you through how the 2 Series Coupé drives, what it’s like inside and how much it costs to buy and run before you sign on the dotted line. And when you're ready for that last step, head to our New Car Buyer page for all the latest and greatest deals.
