2014 Coupe Buyers Guide

Share this Article

Performance oriented cars aren’t always coupes, and coupes aren’t always performance oriented. Still, two-door cars exude a certain personality that implies sportiness, even if the implication holds less water than a sieve.

Choosing a coupe is like buying a bright outfit. People are going to look at you, but it isn’t always practical. If fashion and fun both mean more to you, then a “coop-ay” as the Brits call them, might be your best bet.

What's New in Coupes?

For 2014 Honda has update the Civic Coupe, much like the manufacturer did last last year with the Civic sedan. The Si model also receives a mild power bump this year with power now reaching 205 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque.

Kia is also offering a new version of its Forte Koup with a choice between either a 2.0-liter four cylinder with 173 hp and 154 lb-ft of torque or a hotter 1.6-liter turbocharged mill with 201 hp and 195 lb-ft. The more powerful engine is aimed at the enthusiast market with a six-speed manual transmission available.

Lexus has introduced an all-new 450 hp V8 powered rear-wheel drive coupe called the RC-F. Aiming to take on the likes of the BMW M4, Audi RS5 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe AMG.

BMW has replaced all 3 Series coupes with the similarly sized 4 Series coupe. Available as a coupe or convertible, 4 Series models are available with a turbocharged four-cylinder or a six-cylinder turbo.

There is another new BMW Coupe this year, the 2 Series. Replacing the 1 Series, the 2 Series is available with a turbocharged four-cylinder and a 300 hp turbocharged six-cylinder much like the larger 4 Series.

While on the topic of coupe, Cadillac has also unveiled a two-door version of the company's compact ATS sedan. The coupe is available with the turbocharged four-cylinder engine or a 3.6 liter V6. Offering choice for consumers, the ATS Coupe will offer  rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, as well as a manual and automatic transmission.

What’s Coming in Coupes?

Mercedes-Benz will once again again offer a S-Class Coupe that will of course be available in S 65 AMG trim. Audi is ready to debut a thrid generation TT coupe later this year.

The retro looking Nissan IDX coupes have apparently been green-lighted for production and should appear soon.
