The Best Coupes of 2015

By on July 2, 2015

#4: 2015 Subaru BRZ

With specs that very closely resemble the Scion FR-S, the Subaru BRZ is another exciting, affordable coupe from a trustworthy automaker. The 2015 Subaru BRZ is slightly more expensive than the Scion FR-S, with a starting MSRP of just over $26,000. For this reasonable price, you’ll be getting an agile, sporty coupe that looks and drives like a more expensive vehicle.

The 2015 Subaru BRZ also gives you the choice between a manual and automatic transmission, so if you don’t mind driving stick, you can save some extra money on this car. The BRZ also features a flat 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine that puts out 200 horsepower, and it accelerates decently well, doing zero to sixty in just about six seconds. The BRZ also features excellent steering and control, with a quality chassis that provides strength and balance.

The only issues with the BRZ relate to space, as the cabin is not very roomy, and the trunk is not large enough to accommodate a lot of cargo. However, for the relatively low price of the Subaru BRZ, this is just picking nits. The 2015 Subaru BRZ gives you great bang for your buck, and is one of the best coupes you can buy in this price range. Definitely check this car out if you’re considering a coupe.

Specs:

  • MSRP: $26,490
  • Fuel Economy: 22 mpg city / 30 mpg highway

#3: 2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata

Specs:

  • MSRP: $24,790
  • Fuel Economy: 27 mpg city / 34 mpg highway
  • Engine: 4-cylinder, 2.0 liter

The Mazda Miata has a well-established reputation as one of the best affordable coupes, making drivers very happy since the car’s inception in 1989. The Miata was designed to be a sports car without a huge price tag, and it has succeeded wildly, giving drivers on a budget the feeling of a luxury sports coupe without having to spend thousands upon thousands of dollars.

Despite the Miata having earned a reputation for excellence over its lifetime, Mazda continues to fine tune the car to even higher standards. The 2015 MX-5 Miata is, like all of its predecessors, one of the best coupes you can buy for under $30,000. This car is a joy to drive; it’s sporty, agile, and accelerates more quickly than any of its similarly-priced competitors.

The 2015 MX-5 Miata is available in many different forms, too. You can opt for a convertible, you can choose a manual or automatic transmission, and you can add on great extras. The Miata is available with a leather shifter, Bluetooth connectivity, and power door locks, which are features that you won’t usually find in coupes at this price range. There’s a reason the Mazda MX-5 Miata continues to be a consumer favorite after all these years – it’s an excellent car at an excellent price. Definitely consider a Miata for your next coupe.
