AutoWeek challenges all of us to vote on the best sporty coupe under $50,000 in the U.S. The automotive publication places head-to-head some of the most remarkable coupes available for sale in the United States and the poll is announcing to be a close one.
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.
Aud is well represented as well with two vehicles that have been challenging BMW coupes around the world: Audi A5 and TT Coupe. Mercedes throws into the fight its Mercedes-Benz E350 coupe, a vehicle slightly larger than the other contestants.
Other worthy mentions include the Cadillac CTS Coupe, Hyundai Genesis coupe, Infiniti G37 coupe or the Chevrolet Camaro.
In the U.S., the 2012 BMW 3 Series starts at $37,650 for the base 328i Coupe, while the 3.0 liter Twin-Scroll turbocharged 335i Coupe sells for $44,100. While slight more expensive than in 2011, the two vehicles include the automatic transmission at no-charge.
The entry-level coupe, 128i, has a base price of $30,950 while the 135i Coupe begins at $39,050.
From a competitors standpoint, the Audi A5 starts at $36,900 for the 2.0T model.
