Best and worst coupes 2019
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...
Coupés are all about image and style; they're designed to look great and get heads turning as you drive by. Not long ago, such cars were often very expensive to buy and run, but more and more affordable coupés have come onto the market in recent years.
Coupés can also be practical and efficient to run, but the main focus is always on appearance. Here, we give our recommendations on the best coupés to buy right now and the ones to avoid at all costs.
10. Jaguar F-Type
There's no doubt that the F-Type is a stunner, and if you pick one with the peppy 3.0-litre V6 engine, it'll be highly entertaining. It's not the best coupé to drive, though, and neither the manual nor automatic gearboxes are as slick as those of rivals.
The Continental GT conjures up rose-tinted images of what driving used to be like, when the roads were empty and the super-rich would blast across Europe to get to their second home on the Riviera. And yet this car was actually the first truly modern Bentley.
With a 6.0-litre W12 engine that drives all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox, the Continental GT is massively and effortlessly fast. Unfortunately, it's also hugely expensive to buy and run.
8. BMW 4 Series
Few coupés can match the all-round abilities of BMW's 4 Series. This is a car that looks great, is perfectly practical and has room for four inside. It may feature many of the same interior fixtures and fittings as the smaller 3 Series, but that's hardly a bad thing, and you also get the option of BMW's excellent iDrive infotainment and navigation set-up.
