New Audi A5 Sportback vs BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe

Some may baulk at a coupé having five doors, but if an SUV can be made to handle like a sports car, a BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé can rival an Audi TT. What’s more, a new model is near, so there are deals to be had. The one we found has dropped significantly from its list price when new.

We found: 2016 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe 420d M Sport (professional media pack), 41,858 miles, £15,500

Mazda MX-5

Carefree fun in the sun for a reasonable sum - that’s how we’d describe a used Mazda MX-5. The little 1.5 version is a lightweight marvel, but the 2.0-litre is even better with sportier suspension and a limited-slip differential at the back that improves traction and makes it even better in the bends.

We found: 2016 Mazda MX-5 2.0 Sport Nav, 26,429 miles, £14,000

Used BMW 2 Series Convertible 14-present

Classy convertibles either tend to be huge in size to make up for the space-robbing folding roof, or pokey little things you can’t fit anything in. The BMW 2 Series strikes a fine balance between the two camps, and it has a great range of engines to suit all needs. The boot is useful, too, because the fabric roof needs less room when stowed compared with a folding metal alternative favoured by some of its rivals.

We found: 2018 BMW 218i Sport, 24,000 miles Price £15,000

Ford Galaxy front three quarters

Never mind that this isn’t some super trendy SUV, because at less than half its list price when new, this Ford Galaxy is a stonking bargain. Forget the stigma: the Galaxy is a highly refined family haulier that’s good to drive, and has either space for seven or a monster cargo-carrying when the seats are stowed away.

We found: 2016 Ford Galaxy 2.0 TDCI 180 Titanium X, 39,142 miles Price £13,850
