What alternatives should I consider to a used BMW 2 Series coupe?
The Audi TT is a cracker of a car, and one of our favourites. It’s smaller than the BMW 2 Series Coupé and is front-wheel drive, so very keen drivers might not find it as balanced in its handling, and the rear seats are more cramped. There’s a range of smooth and eager engines, dart-like handing and it all feels solidly constructed. It also has one of the finest interiors around, with smart materials and a standard digital instrument display.
The Seat Leon SC is effectively a three-door version of the old version of the five-door regular Leon cooking hatchback, but it’s none the worse for that. It’s quick, agile, economical and, most important of all here on the used market, excellent value for money. It’s also spacious inside. The interior doesn’t feel as classy as the Audi’s or the BMW’s, but overall it’s a great car, and fun to drive, too – especially if you choose one of the more sporty variants.
