3. Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupé

Mercedes C-Class Coupé

If you prefer comfort to outright handling, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupé could be the car for you. Composed, calming and efficient, it's a comfortable cruiser that will whittle away the miles with ease. The diesel engines are the pick of the range, because of their strong torque figures and exceptional fuel economy, even though they’re a bit noisy when accelerating.

All versions come well equipped, but if you find a Premium model, you get added luxuries such as full electric seats, a panoramic glass roof, ambient interior lighting and keyless entry. Premium Plus cars feature a fancier Burmester stereo and a larger infotainment screen.

2. BMW 4 Series Coupé

BMW 4 Series Coupe

Time has done little to diminish the appeal of the BMW 4 Series; it still looks just as good today as it did in 2013. What’s more, it's a full four-seater and has a decent-sized boot, making it a practical choice.   

It isn't quite as nimble as the smaller 2 Series Coupé, but the 4 Series Coupé is still a nice car to drive along a twisting country lane. Avoid big wheels for a better ride and a little less road noise. Diesel engines can be a touch gruff under acceleration.

We found: 2017 BMW 420d Coupé M Sport auto, 1013 miles, £21,990
