Best and worst coupes 2018
If you're after a stylish coupé, check out our comprehensive rundown of the best models on the market, as well as the ones to avoid...
The regular Mercedes-Benz S-Class saloon is already one of the finest luxury cars around, so it makes sense that the coupé version should be equally well received. Indeed, thanks to a comfortable and well-appointed interior and driver assistance systems, this S-Class is perfect for travelling from one end of Europe to the other. The 4.7-litre V8 engine you get with the S500 version is impressive, too.
Our pick S500
If the BMW 4 Series earlier in this list doesn't float your boat, then consider its main rival. Based on the successful C-Class saloon, the Coupé is best paired with a diesel engine. Specified with the optional air suspension, it successfully soaks up the worst of UK road imperfections. Its interior is also smartly laid out and the seats are comfortable.
Our pick C 250 AMG Line auto
2. Audi A5
The A5 coupé is based on a former Car of the Year, the A4 saloon, so the fact that it's quite brilliant should come as no surprise. Even amid strong competition from the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupé and BMW 4 Series – both of which also feature on this list – the A5 stands out, thanks to its plush interior and strong engines. It's also rather practical for a coupé, with a usefully large boot.
Our pick 3.0 TDI 218 quattro
