BMW coupes are widely popular in the US because they offer stunning exterior design and admirable performance. The regular 4 Series is BMW’s best-selling two-door, and the Gran Coupe version is a more spacious, 4-door version of it. The M4 is one of the best BMW coupes available in terms of performance, but it’s exclusively a two-door. The M3 would be the better choice for those concerned about passenger space.
Most trims in this category are full-blown sports cars, but there are a few in-between that are suitable for the small family. An example would be the 2 Series Gran Coupe, but it is worth remembering that the sloped rooflines of these autos typically encroach on rear passenger space. If you’re planning on regularly having occupants in the back, a sedan is the better way to go. Those with a love for athletic station wagons will have to venture abroad or to another brand since the 3 Series Sports Wagon was discontinued.
Most BMW coupe models also cost a great deal to buy, so that is a factor worth thinking if you’re after a vehicle in this segment. Still, BMW coupe cars have high ratings for a reason, so they’re often worth the steep MSRP.
While the coupe range is by no means small, not every edition from the German brand is represented. Popular choices like the 5 Series are only available in standard three-box configuration. Still, you won’t struggle to find a spec to suit your taste, but be sure you carefully consider every aspect of your new BMW coupe before you sign the papers:
The German manufacturer has plenty of these on offer currency, here are some of the best:

You could if you wanted to; just bear in mind that this is no SUV. The Bimmer (or Beamer for those from across the pond) in coupe form is bound to get cramped if you have a family of five to think about. Set your sights on a sporty crossover instead. They are often just as fun when you compare them side by side.
