What defines coupe vehicles

  • They have two doors - some might get confused between coupes, convertibles and fastbacks, but always remember: if you see two doors and a solid, non-reclinable roof, then its a coupe. 
  • Swooping styling - due to fewer entry points to the cabin, these vehicles usually have a smoother body style that is both attractive and aggressive. 
  • Dynamics - these motors have attractive design traits, but most of them drive pleasantly too. Coupes traditionally signify sporty driving and handling, with autos like the Toyota 86, for instance, and BMW M4 embodying these.
  • Small trunk and cargo room -  due to the lack of back seats and rear doors, these machines don’t have as much overall cargo capacity as a regular sedan or hatchback would. 

Top Coupe Cars of 2020

  • Toyota Supra - The Toyota Supra has possibly been the most anticipated new coupe in years, but when it made its debut at the 2019 Detroit auto show, some die-hard fans were thrown into a tailspin. Why? Because it would be based on the hairdresser’s second favorite after the Miata - the BMW Z4. If you can get over this fact, then you’re left with an extremely well balanced and entertaining ride. 
  • Porsche Cayman - Porsche’s excellent range of Caymans continuously sets the bar when it comes to compact, fun, thrilling driving, and for the money, it is one of the best coupe cars in the US. 
  • BMW 8 Series Coupe - This GT cruiser  We would go so far as to say that it is one of the top coupe cars out there, and has received glowing ratings from the public and motoring journalists alike.
  • Ford Mustang - The ‘Stang is one of the best coupes in history and is popular in the USA. Almost everyone knows someone who has owned one as a first car, which just shows how prolific these automobiles are, and 2021 should be another great year for the icon. 
  • Mercedes-Benz C-class - The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has to be one of the top coupes in its class. This German manufacturer tends to hit the nail on the head when it comes to designing beautiful two-doors, and the capable and comfortable C-Class is no different.

FAQs About Coupes

What is the best affordable coupe?

If you’re after a stylish coupe that won’t break the bank yet still provides reliable excitement, then we would recommend taking a gander at the Toyota 86. This basic rear-wheel-driven car is one of the best vehicles of its sort and offers endless driving entertainment but won’t get you into serious trouble thanks to a modest power output of only 205 hp. 86 models list all the basic elements of having a good time. 

What 2020 coupe should I avoid? 

Coupes don’t always have to have pin-point precision and mind-bending performance, but one should feel a slight sense of occasion when getting behind the wheel. Unfortunately, the Lexus RC fails to deliver on either. With vague steering, an uninspiring powertrain, and high cost, your best bet would be to look at another model.
