Best used coupes for less than £20,000

The market for new coupés is shrinking, but that's okay because there are loads of excellent used examples you can save thousands on. Here’s our top ten list...

1. Audi TT

It's hard to remember a time when the Audi TT hasn't won an award, and with prices of year-old ones dipping under £20,000, it's likely to continue to do so since it was our used coupé of the year. No other rival manages to tick as many boxes as the TT, especially not for this little money. 

While you can get some spectacularly quick examples (the fire-spitting 394bhp TT RS is an obvious candidate) our budget puts you in a much more sensible 1.8-litre turbo petrol, which is fine because it's a sweet engine with plenty of performance. And you don't have to go for a highly specced one either because every version is well-equipped; even high-end stuff like Audi's Virtual Cockpit, which replaces traditional dials with a configurable 12.3in screen, comes as standard.

Plus, the TT deals with twists and turns with ease, provides a pleasant ride and also has progressively weighted steering that makes it easy to place the car on the road. For all these reasons listed we argue that for the moment, a used Audi TT makes for an excellent second-hand purchase.
