Have fun in style with a coupe!
If performance, fun, and style are important to you then it's likely that a two-door coupe would be something of a dream. Whether it's a modern take on a classic muscle car, a sleek two-door variant of a sedan, or a purpose-designed sports coupe, there are plenty of options. Some coupes accommodate two people but many offer seating for up to five, making them an excellent choice if you don't want to have to leave family or friends behind when you're having fun.
To help you find your two-door dream machine, take a look at this list of the 10 best coupe cars, based on CarMax vehicle and sales data from September 1, 2019 through February 29, 2020.

Although the Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger are available with smaller engine options, it's the V8 options that might appeal to you most. If you can't choose which of your buddies to cruise the streets with, they've all got rear seats too.
If a two-seat coupe is your dream, the Chevrolet Corvette and Nissan 370Z offer two contrasting choices. In the 2019 Stingray targa spec, the Corvette's 6.2L V8 delivers 460 hp, while the 3.7L V6 in the 370Z offers 332 hp (2017-2019 models).
If you want a fun drive and fancy premium looks combined with everyday practicality, how about the Honda Civic, Audi A5, or BMW 428? All three are powered by 2.0L four-cylinder engines (all available model years), with the Audi and BMW also turbocharged for increased performance. While the BMW 428 hasn't been available since 2016, the comparable BMW 430 arrived in 2018. These all present great options if you're looking for a spirited drive to work, or while running errands.
