2019 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 that’s not a convertible or a hatchback, coupes are often sports cars or luxury cars, but can also be economy cars like the Honda Civic Coupe. Just to clarify, coupes have TWO DOORS. We at AutoGuide.com don't classify "four-door coupes" or "coupe SUVs" as true coupes. 

Coupes seem to be a dying segment, as they’re not the most practical cars, but there were a bunch of significant updates to some popular coupes this year.

Pros and Cons of Coupes

Pros: Coupes make a strong stylistic statement. As many automakers set up their coupes as the sportier cars in their lineups, many have excellent driving dynamics.

Cons: Coupes are generally far less practical than other types of vehicles with their smaller trunks, less headroom, cramped cabins, and sometimes only two seats. Getting into rear seats, if a coupe even has them, can also be difficult and uncomfortable. As lower-slung cars, ingress and egress can also be more difficult, especially for those with mobility issues or lower back pain. Since most coupes are also sportier, they often require premium fuel.

What’s New in Coupes for 2019?

The highly anticipated Toyota Supra will finally be unveiled. This sports car marks the return of the legendary Supra nameplate. This two-seater is powered by a turbocharged inline-six engine that will output more than 300 horsepower. We have already driven an early prototype of this two-door, and we are initially quite impressed. The Supra feels focused, responsive, and precise. There’s a lot of hype to live up to, so Toyota has its work cut out for it.

The BMW 8 Series has returned after a 20-year break as the German automaker’s new flagship coupe. Large and in charge, this ultra-luxurious two-door model makes a big statement. Powered by a hefty 4.4L twin-turbo V8, the M850 has 530 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. BMW also paid extra attention to the interior of this luxury grand tourer, giving it lots of luxury and cutting-edge technology.

new-generation of Porsche 911 has debuted and although the German automaker hasn’t messed around too much with the iconic sports car’s formula, it has received important updates and refinements all around. The 8th-generation 911 has more power, is more efficient, and gets a bunch of interesting technology like night vision assist, automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control. Prices for the 911 have also gone up considerably.

Aston Martin has been making big moves, refining and modernizing its coupe lineup. The Aston Martin Vantage has been completely overhauled and is aiming to find fans with a younger audience. With a menacing new look and improved driving dynamics, it devours corners with poise and purpose. The Vantage is powered by an AMG-sourced twin-turbo V8 with 503 hp. The DB11 is now also available with the same V8 in addition to a V12. The DBS also got a new Superleggera model, the most performance-focused and muscular model — 715 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque from a 5.2L twin-turbo V12, and it looks gorgeous. The British brand has also debuted its AMR line to battle AMG. The DB11 AMR is faster, nicer to drive and a touch more dramatic. Of course, there’s still the Valkyrie hypercar that’s on the way.

The Dodge Challenger is getting so old, but it hasn’t stopped people’s love for this iconic muscle car. Besides the Demon, the limited edition insane drag strip special, the RedEye has also arrived as the closest thing to a Demon with 797 hp. From there, the Widebody gets the Demon’s fenders and some suspension upgrades.

Keeping with the muscle car theme, the Ford Mustang Bullitt has returned offering drivers more than just nostalgia. The Chevrolet Camaro Turbo is now available as a track-focused 1LE model, giving the most affordable version of the sports car the go-fast goodies. More importantly, the whole Camaro lineup got refreshed for 2019 — although the looks are a bit controversial, there are tangible improvements that should help sharpen performance.

The Honda Civic Coupe was slightly refreshed for 2019 with a physical button knob and a few trim changes. Acura has updated its NSX hybrid supercar for 2019 with refinements that improve performance incrementally.

Bugatti debuted a dramatic new model based on the Chiron called the Divo, which is more performance-oriented, as if that was even possible. Lamborghini's Aventador SVJ debuted and won the Nurburgring lap time record, while the Huracan Evo was revealed with a bunch more power and performance technology.

Other Important Coupes

The Subaru BRZ is mostly unchanged for 2019 with the exception of some special edition models. The Toyota 86, which shares a platform with the BRZ, is also unchanged. Still, though they are aging and not that fast, they are some of the most engaging and affordable coupes you can buy.

The Porsche 718 Cayman is still segment-leading in terms of refinement and engagement, while the Jaguar F-Type Coupe lineup was recently refreshed. While the Jaguar still sounds incredible and looks gorgeous, there is also a new four-cylinder model that is more affordable. The twin-turbo V6 and V8 models are still available. The Audi TT/TTS/TT RS lineup is still available as a refined and quick little coupe with AWD, and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and S-Class Coupe, BMW 2 Series, 4 Series, and BMW 6 Series are still great picks. The Infiniti Q60, Audi R8, Audi A5/S5/RS5, Mercedes-AMG GT, Lexus RC/RC F, and Lexus LC500, continue on for 2019. In ultra luxury land, the Bentley Continental and Rolls-Royce Wraith are opulent and fast. The Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe has been discontinued, but the Spider version is still here.

What’s Coming in Coupes?

The Nissan 370Z is getting really left behind, and we’re expecting a major overhaul soon. Hyundai’s luxury Genesis brand is sure to add a sporty and stylish RWD coupe to its lineup in the near future. Don't be surprised if you see more coupes being discontinued. For the ones that remain, we can expect more hybridization or pure EVs.
