Best and worst coupes 2021
Tempted by the idea of a stylish coupé? Then check out our comprehensive rundown of the best models on the market – and find out which one we'd avoid...
4. Aston Martin DB11
The DB11 is an altogether sportier choice than the S-Class, offering steering feel and body control that belies its size, particularly if you go for the V8 version. Alternatively, you can sit back, ensconced in the ocean of handcrafted natural hides and wools that adorn the interior, and enjoy the delights of a traditional grand tourer.
3. Audi A5 Coupé
This A5 coupé is based on a former What Car? 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 BMW 4 Series and Mercedes C-Class Coupé, the A5 stands out, thanks to its plush interior and strong engines. It's also rather practical for a two-door coupé, with a usefully large boot.
2. Mercedes CLA
Climb into the CLA, and you'll be impressed at how lavish it feels, both in terms of pizazz and technology. Meanwhile, the 221bhp turbo petrol engine in the 250 version delivers stonking performance, and the keen pricing and rock-solid resale values ensure it even appeals to your sensible side.
