Italian panache, great performance, wonderful V6 engine
There are cheaper and more reliable choices, no diesel option, cramped rear seats
Coupés are all about style - something the GTV has in abundance. Despite being around since 1996 it still looks fantastic inside and out, helped by a mid-life facelift. You'll have to make sacrifices in the practicality department since the rear seats are only fit for luggage, and it's not cheap to run either with thirsty petrol engines. However it's enjoyable to drive and quick too - if you want a bit of Italian soul then the GTV could be the answer.
