2021 Coupes

Everyone knows that two doors are cooler than four, so when you need a ride that makes a statement, there’s no doubt that you’ll be looking at the newest coupes on the market. Any two-door will do, and although the choices these days are mostly limited to just luxury coupes and sports cars, there are a few exceptions. Just to clarify, coupes have TWO DOORS. We at AutoGuide.com don't classify "four-door coupes" or "coupe SUVs" as true coupes. We are also focusing on coupes that are both practical and sporty, and not just full-fledge sports cars.

As mentioned, coupes may be a dying segment, shunned for their lack of practicality, but there were a bunch of significant updates to some popular coupes this year. 

Pros and Cons of Coupes

Pros

  • Styling
  • Usually performance orientated
  • Personality

Cons:

  • Less practical
  • Rear seat entry
  • Large doors in parking lots

Hatchback Coupes

A bit of a grey area in the coupe world are two-door hatchbacks. These cars don't usually have the same sleek styling as their trunk-laden counterparts, as they're just hatchbacks that are slightly shorter and missing a set of rear doors. Still, they are coupes, just slightly more practical ones. Sadly though, this market is nearly extinct.  Currently, there are only three models available, and one only qualifies on a technicality. First up, there is the godfather of the small two-door coupe - the MINI Hardtop 2-Door. All-new for 2023, the 2-door MINI can be had as a thrifty commuter car or a full-fledge hot hatch in John Cooper Works trim. There's also an all-electric MINI Cooper SE version of the hatchback.

If you're looking for something a bit more premium, there is the Audi TT. More of a fastback than a hatchback, this little two-door can be as the TT, TT-S, or the wild TT-RS. The latter of which comes equipped with a 394 hp turbocharged five-cylinder engine.  The other player in this field is the Hyundai Veloster which has been reduced to just the high-perfromance N trim level. It is technically a three-door as there is an extra door on the passenger's side of the car to help entry into the rear seats. But from the driver's side it looks like a two-door hatchback at least. 

What’s New in Coupes for 2022?

BMW 2 Series Coupe

2022 BMW M240i Coupe Review BMW's smallest coupe is all-new this year and is available in two versions, the 230i and the M240i xDrive. The 230i is a rear-wheel drive coupe that features a 255 hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The M240i xDrive is all-wheel drive and has a turbocharged six-cylinder engine that makes 382 hp, which is a lot of power for a little coupe.  Both models are only available with an eight-speed automatic transmission. There is no M2 model of this new generation as of yet and Canadian buyers should also take note that the 230i is not offered in the great white north.

BMW M4

The other big news in the coupe segment for 2022 is also from BMW. Last year the 4-series was all-new and this year the high-performance M4 joins the lineup. For the first time ever, a BMW M3/M4 can be had with available all-wheel drive in the M4 Competition xDrive Coupe. Power comes from a turbocharged six-cylinder engine that makes 473 hp in the regular M4. Opt for the competition coupe and power increases to 503 hp. Buyers looking for a manual transmission will want to the get the rear-wheel drive M4 as the xDrive is automatic-only.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Mercedes-Benz is one of the few manufacturers left to offer a mid-size luxury coupe. Being a larger car, the obvious benefit of the E-Class coupe is that it offers more passenger space than the compact luxury coupes listed on this page. It can be had with a choice of turbocharged six-cylinder engines.
