BMW Groups is represented by three vehicles. First, the BMW-branded 1 Series and 3 Series Coupe. Second, the front-wheel drive, yet still exciting to drive, MINI Cooper.

    All these cars on AutoWeek are nice and objects of desire of course, but my vote would go to Ford Mustang or Chevrolet Camaro beacuse they are insanely cool.

      Oh my, so many minuses, it’s not like I said BMW sucks or something, some people really are mindless fanatics….

        I have to agree that’s a bit obnoxious. OTOH, while I also agree that the Camaro and Mustang are pretty cool, I just don’t see them as “best”. For overall fit, finish, performance and style I really do believe the 3-series is the best under $50K, but only by a hair. The E90/91/92 is now six years old… the sixth-gen 3-series can’t get here soon enough!

    Love BMW, but that Audi A5 is a good looking car.

    • FreudeKing says:

      What’s so good looking about it? It is so boring and the front end looks like a messed up sad face. Perceived beauty is only skin deep. When we vote for the best, we don’t just vote on looks. The mere fact that this A5 is basically a VW Jetta underneath means that I will never support such cheaters with cheap imitationsling VWs at BMW prices.

  3. FreudeKing says:

    Can someone please tell me how those VW and Volvo hatchbacks got their way into being classified as a Coupe??? The fact that they have two doors does not mean that they are coupes.

    Fiat 500 a coupé what the hell?

  5. Audipage says:

    I would say Audi TT Coupe and more on the TTS Coupe.
