Which used Hyundai Coupe coupe should I buy?

The 2.7 V6 may use the most fuel of the three engines, but we'd recommend it for the way it adds to the experience - it does 0-62mph in 8.2 seconds, just enough for it to feel swift.

The 2.0-litre strikes a good balance between affordability, running costs and performance. It's only one second slower from rest to 62mph than the V6, although its four cylinders sound nowhere near as appealing.

Only consider the 1.6 if you really cannot afford one of the others, because it's slow and coarse, and its economy advantage disappears if you try to keep up with more powerful sports cars.

All models are well equipped and a mild face-lift in 2005 freshened up the looks, but all Coupes could do with more security kit as standard.

Hyundai dealers love the Coupe for the halo it casts on other models, so there are plenty to be found on their forecourts, while car supermarkets are another happy hunting ground.
