If you’re one of those people, then you’ll want a coupe, rather than a convertible. Luckily for you, we have this here guide to what the best coupe in the UK is in 2016.
So, now we’ve gotten that out of the way, let us help you find the best coupe for you in 2016 by whittling down our pick of the best models in the UK market.
Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe
The 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe, simply one of the best coupes on the market in the UK. You really can’t go wrong with the sexy F-TYPE.
Jaguar’s stunning F-TYPE is available in both Coupe and Convertible body styles. We recommend the F-TYPE Coupe as the UK weather isn’t exactly known for its forgiving nature…
Three trim levels are also available for UK customers, which are F-TYPE, F-TYPE S and F-TYPE R. Depending on the version chosen, the Jaguar F-TYPE will come equipped with either a 335bhp 3.0-litre V6 engine (standard), 375bhp 3.0 V6 (F-TYPE S) or beastly 543bhp 5.0-litre V8 (F-TYPE R).
You’ll be able to fling your Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe around everywhere if you opt for one of the AWD models. AWD is feature on F-TYPE S and F-TYPE R models only.
If speed is king for you, then go for the Jaguar F-TYPE R AWD Coupe and you’ll be rewarded with a 3.9 seconds 0-60mph sprint time and an incredible top speed of 186mph.
Still want more? Well the 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe is one of the best-equipped coupes in the UK market this year.
Standard kit includes climate control, sports seats, sat-nav, eight-inch colour touch-screen, Bluetooth, deployable rear spoiler, and a Meridian Sound System with 10 speakers.
Audi TT Coupe
The Audi TT Coupe is a common sight on roads in the UK, simply because customers can’t get enough of the coupe!
This certainly won’t change in 2016 with many buyers still opting for the Audi TT Coupe as their coupe of choice and hailing it as the best model for them, compared to its rivals.
As with the Jaguar F-TYPE before it, the Audi TT is available with both a hard- and soft-top, called the TT Coupe and TT Roadster, respectively. Which model is best for you in 2016 depends on whether you want to experience top-down driving or not.
Also available are two Audi TTS variants, offering more kit and more power – for an extra sum of money, of course.
If you opt for the standard Audi TT Coupe, you will have a good choice of engines. The units available are the 1.8 TFSI and 2.0 TFSI petrol engines, along with a 2.0 TDI ultra diesel powerplant that offers the best fuel economy and lowest emissions.
If you like your quattro, then the Audi TT Coupe with the 2.0 TFSI engine is available with quattro technology.
Looking for pure performance? Then go for an Audi TTS Coupe in 2016 and tick the box for a six-speed S tronic transmission to go with the 306bhp 2.0 TFSI engine with quattro technology. This will give customers in the UK a benchmark sprint time of 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 155mph.
The 2016 Audi TT also has a lot of cool features for UK customers to play with, including Audi drive select with five modes, MMI control panel with MMI Touch, manual air conditioning, leather/Alcantara upholstery, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
It really is easy to see what many customers in the UK think of the Audi TT Coupe as one of the best coupes on the market in 2016.
Look at it. Just look at that sexy hunk of metal. That is the 2016 Ford Mustang, and it is simply one of the best coupes that the UK car market has to offer.
Like the models above, Ford offers the Mustang in two guises: Fastback coupe and open-top Convertible – we’ll be focusing on the aforementioned body style.
The Ford Mustang coupe is a brilliant machine, no question about it. If you want to cut down on your emissions, then the 2.3 EcoBoost version is the model for you, producing just 179g/km of CO2.
However, if like us you prefer power, then go for the Mustang coupe with the 5.0-litre V8 engine that pumps out 410bhp and 530Nm of torque.
This is the best version of the Mustang, in our opinion, with Ford’s coupe being able to sprint down a straight UK road at speeds up to 155mph and go from zero to 62mph in just 4.8 seconds.
It’s not just the power and look that makes us think that the Ford Mustang is one of the best coupes on the UK market in 2016 – it’s also jam-packed with technology.
As standard, the Mustang comes equipped with 19-inch alloy wheels, sports-style front seats, rear-view camera, cruise control, Ford KeyFree system, Ford SYNC 2 with Voice Control and eight-inch TFT colour touch-screen, and dual-zone air conditioning.
If you love the appeal of American muscle cars, then the 2016 Ford Mustang is definitely the best car for you in the UK’s coupe market.
BMW M4 Coupe
The BMW M4 Coupe is a sleek and stylish car that replaced the M3 Coupe and Convertible models in the German automaker’s UK line-up back in 2014.
Many UK customers see the BMW M4 as the best coupe on the market in 2016 thanks to its high level of equipment and the amount of power under the hood.
The BMW M4 Coupe is only available with one engine, but don’t despair as it’s a real powerhouse. At the heart of the coupe lies a 3.0-litre turbocharged petrol unit that pumps out 425bhp and 550Nm of torque.
So UK buyers, that means you’ll be able to complete the benchmark sprint in 4.3 seconds, before hitting a limited top speed of 156mph.
If you’re taking the M4 Coupe on a straight road in 2016, you’d better bring a spare pair of underpants for when you put the pedal to the metal!
The 2016 BMW M4 Coupe also comes very well specced for UK customers. All versions of the coupe include dual-zone air conditioning, 19-inch light alloys, cruise control, leather upholstery, 8.8-inch colour display screen, BMW Professional Multimedia Navigation system, and much more.
It really is easy to see why we think that the 2016 BMW M4 Coupe is one of the best models in its segment in the UK car market. The complete package will just make so much sense to many customers!
Rounding off our list is the sleek VW Scirocco, a coupe that is available in many trim levels but, unlike its rivals, does not offer a convertible body style.
If you’re looking for a well-built and well-equipped coupe in 2016, then the VW Scirocco is definitely one of the best models that you can buy in the UK.
From the standard versions all the way up to the more powerful Scirocco R models, each version of Volkswagen’s coupe comes highly equipped with a host of tech and a strong engine under the bonnet.
Even base VW Scirocco coupes come equipped with 17-inch alloys, multi-function leather steering wheel, touch-screen CD/radio system, air conditioning, and a Multi Device Interface.
Customers in the UK can take advantage of extra kit such as larger alloys, front and rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, sat-nav, and sports seats if they opt for one of the higher trim levels.
If you’re looking for an efficient coupe, then opt for a VW Scirocco with a 2.0 TDI 148bhp engine that features BlueMotion technology. This version of the Scirocco coupe returns average fuel economy of 67.3mpg.
However, if its power and pace you want, then go for the range-topping VW Scirocco R 2.0 TSI 276bhp version, offering a quick 0-62mph time of 5.5 seconds.
It may not be as flashy as some of the other coupes on this list, but going for a 2016 VW Scirocco could be the best choice for UK customers this year.
