7. BMW M2
If you're looking for a sports coupé that's also surprisingly practical, the BMW M2 should definitely be on your shortlist. An enhanced version of the already rapid M240i, it has a 365bhp 3.0-litre straight-six petrol engine under the bonnet and is the kind of car that you’ll be looking for excuses to drive.
Target Price from £44,430
One of the more affordable options on this list, the latest TT Roadster dives into bends, grips hard and suffers from barely any body lean. There's a wide range of engines to choose from, too, and as long as you need only two seats, it's surprisingly practical.
Target Price from £27,681
5. Mazda MX-5
On an even tighter budget? No problem, because the latest Mazda MX-5 offers an outstanding ride and handling balance at an even smaller price. True, the engine needs to be revved hard, but that's all part of the fun.
Target Price from £18,007
