Luxury and sport coupes are an endangered species, but we applaud those buyers who skip SUVs in favor of something a little more personal.
The BMW 4-Series is up for replacement soon, so discounts on the outgoing model should be readily available.
Our choice in this segment is probably the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which blends voluptuous styling with impressive performance in most configurations.
The Infiniti Q60 can be had with plenty of punch, though its interface can be distracting.
Audi updated its svelte A5 coupe for 2020, making it run neck-and-neck with the C-Class for our favor.
Don’t skip over the Ford Mustang.
It may be a little rough around some edges, but it provides convincing world-class performance with a price tag far below its luxury competitors.
