Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The entry point to the 2 Series Coupé range undercuts the Audi TT and the most expensive versions push into Audi A5 territory; generally, the 2 Series Coupé adds just over a couple of thousand pounds to the price of an equivalent 1 Series.

For us, the pick of the range is the 218i Sport if you want the best compromise between costs and performance — it's by far the cheapest to buy. It's claimed to manage just under 40mpg on the official combined WLTP fuel economy cycle, too. Its CO2 emissions are higher than the 218d, but company car users won't have to pay for the 4 per cent diesel Benefit-in-Kind surcharge. 

Overview

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.

  • Spacious in the front seats
  • Decent boot for a coupé
  • Diesels offer strong performace with cheap running costs
  • Tight rear passenger space
  • Gruff-sounding diesels
  • Essential safety kit an option
