These days, more and more American car buyers are hopping on the SUV and family-sized sedan bandwagon. For many people, larger cars are simply more practical and make more sense for growing families. However, what many of these cars lack is the pure FUN of driving a quality, sporty coupe.

All of the coupes below are excellent, stylish vehicles that are a complete joy to drive. If you’re looking to buy a coupe in the near future, you cannot go wrong with these cars. Read on for our list of the best coupes of 2015.
#5: 2015 Scion FR-S
- MSRP: $25,670
- Fuel Economy: 23 mpg city / 30 mpg highway
- Engine: 4-cylinder, 2.0 liter
The 2015 Scion FR-S is a sporty, quality coupe that starts at a very reasonable price, just over $25,000. Scion is owned by Toyota, so it comes as no surprise that this car is reliable, efficient, and a pleasure to drive. The 2015 FR-S is by no means a powerhouse, as it puts out just 200 horsepower, but the car is agile and accelerates quickly, giving you a sense of speed despite the car’s relatively small engine.
The 2015 FR-S is available with both six-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmissions, allowing you to choose the driving experience you want. While the cabin is fairly small and tight, if you’re not planning on having many passengers, the car is roomy enough to be comfortable. The FR-S also has a hatchback, allowing you to pile plenty of cargo in if you wish, as the seats fold down to provide extra storage room.
If you’re looking for an entry-level coupe that gives you plenty of speed and style at a very reasonable price, the 2015 Scion FR-S is a great option that will provide you with a very fun driving experience.
