Handsome, practical and good fun to drive: the Volkswagen Scirocco has it all. While it isn’t quite as classy inside as some of the other coupés here, its price reflects that, and makes the Scirocco look like very good value. There’s a choice of diesel or petrol engines, and automatic or manual gearboxes, and because the Scirocco was so popular when it was new, there’s a wide range to choose from on the used market. There’s very little, in short, that’s not to like.

3. BMW 4 Series

Best used coupes (and the ones to avoid)

It’s based on the ever-popular 3 Series Saloon, so it’s no wonder the BMW 4 Series is such a great coupé. You get the same classy interior, excellent road manners and cracking petrol and diesel engines, but BMW’s lopped off two of the 3 Series’ doors, and replaced them with a swooping, elegant roofline that’s subtle but sophisticated, and pleases the more you look at it. All of which makes the 4 Series something of a winner.
