Picture a coupé and you'll probably come up with something sleek that doesn't have room for a lot of shopping but definitely stands out in the supermarket car park. But while style is an important factor, the best modern coupés offer a lot more besides.

They blend sharp performance and handling with good ride comfort and enough practicality to make them easy to live with And while some are expensive, that doesn't necessarily mean they don't offer good value.

Which models are worth considering, though? Well, here we name our current top 10 – and reveal the coupé that's best avoided.

The Continental GT conjures up rose-tinted images of what driving used to be like, when the super-rich would blast across Europe to get to their second home on the Riviera. And yet it's a thoroughly modern car that makes progress effortless, thanks to a 6.0-litre W12 engine that drives all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The Continental GT is hugely expensive to buy and run, though.

While it's not the sharpest car in its class to drive, the E-Class Coupé is supremely quiet and comfortable. It can be had with a wide range of engines, too, including the popular 220d diesel, which is smooth, quiet and frugal, so an excellent fit for the E-Class.

Whether the 8 Series Gran Coupé looks special enough to justify its high price is subjective, but it certainly strikes a great balance between sportiness and comfort. A beautifully built interior featuring BMW's intuitive iDrive infotainment system adds further to its appeal, plus there's space for four adults.
