Valentine’s Day is a chance for all those old romantics to share a little love with their special someone. But do you want to get up close and personal with your soul mate on every day of the year, and not just February the 14th? Then a fantastic coupe might be ideal for you.
Whether you’re a new couple who want to hit the road together to find romantic adventures, or a couple who have been together longer and just want a space to be close to one another, a coupe could be the type of car you need to add a little spark to your romance. Here are our top coupes for couples this Valentine’s Day.
You could make a case for any of the BMW’s models in coupe form, but we’ve gone for the BMW 2 Series. Why? Well it’s not quite as big as the 3 or 4 Series, so it’s a bit more snug for the romantics. It’s also a lot more affordable than the other models in the series, so you’ll have some more money to spend on your other half.
If you want something sporty to impress your date, then the Mazda MX-5 is an excellent choice. It’s a lot of fun to drive, thanks to the sporty handling and its lightweight build means you can really feel it when you throw yourself into a corner. One to impress a thrill-seeker.
An altogether classier affair, albeit a lot more expensive, the Bentley Continental GT is a coupe for those who love the high life. It’s one of the most beautiful cars on the market, with that distinctive front grille and headlight combination. It’s a great example of beauty and the beast. Beauty with its stunning interior. Beast with the beefy engine beneath the bonnet.
One of the classic coupes on the market now, despite being a few iterations deep now, the Audi TT is a car that’s great for mixing business and pleasure. Of course you get the German efficiency and attention to detail that makes Audi’s such good cars to drive. Two is definitely company in this coupe, as the rear seats are not going to fit anyone except the very small or very nimble. So choose your date wisely!
It’s been almost sixty years since the Jaguar E-Type was first launched, one of the most beautiful and distinctive cars in British history. The F-Type is far more recent and, despite being a place in the alphabet different in name, it continues Jaguar’s approach to all-round beautiful cars. From the sleek curves to the immaculate interior, just make sure you give as much attention to your Valentine as you do to this beauty.
We finish with another beautiful German coupe, this time from Mercedes. The S-Class Coupe is just an exquisitely built car. Whether you go for the V8 or V12 engine, you’ll be getting plenty of power beneath the hood. Inside, you have all the features and fixtures that make driving a joy. Cruising along in the S-Class will make you love driving again, never mind your significant other.
