Volkswagen Coupe Reviews

The term 'coupe car' is increasingly used interchangeably with 'sedan car. However, coupes generally two door cars which have a permanent, hard roof - possibly the best-known coupe is the 1932 Ford Coupe. Several types of coupe cars are produced by Volkswagen.

Volkswagen is a German owned company which has been in business in 1937. Volkswagen owns or is associated with several other car makes, including Skoda, Audi, Seat, Lambourghini and Bugatti. The most famous coupe that Volkswagen have produced is the VW Beetle, one of the most instantly recognisable and classic small cars, made cool through its associations with the sixties, surfing and hippies. Volkswagen continues to produce 2-door couples to this day, and recent models include the Passat, Scirocco and new VW Beetle.

The Scirocco is a 2 door coupe, which comes with a 2 litre engine as standard. It's a sporty vehicle, and was released in 2010 in the UK, to critical acclaim. A version is being produced for the US market, and will be shipped in 2012. It is expected to cost somewhere in the region of $35,000.

The Volkswagen Passat CC is marketed as a coupe, although features 5 doors. It has a 1.8 litre engine as standard, although models with 2.0 and 3.6 litre engines are also available. It is a classy car with many luxury fittings, and is intended as a competitor to similar models offered by Mercedes and other high-end car manufacturers. It features a revolutionary new lane guiding system - the car will not allow you to stray outside your lane unless you are simultaneously indicating. The Volkswagen Passat CC - the "CC" stands for "Concept Car" - also includes a satellite navigation system and a sun roof. The Passat CC is priced from $20,000 upwards, with models with enhanced engines costing more.

If you want retro coupe charm with all singing, all dancing 21st century features, then consider the new Volkswagen Beetle. It comes with Bluetooth technology, and a standard 2.5 litre engine, for around $20,000. You can buy a model with upgrades, including a sun roof, an enhanced sound system, a turbo booster and navigation aids, from between$22,000 to $28,000.

Other Volkswagen cars which come as 2 door models are the Volkswagen Golf and Volkswagen GTI, although these are also classified as sedan cars.

Second hand Volkswagen coupes are very popular. Older 2 door cars include some models of the Volkswagen Golf and Polo. If you're looking for a classic 1960s or 1970s Volkswagen coupe, then you should be able to pick one up for anything between $8,000 and $25,000, depending on the condition of the car and whether or not you have set your sights on a car that's particularly sought after by classic car collectors.

Volkswagen is currently producing a new electric coupe, the E-Up. Production began in December 2011, and the first E-Ups will be delivered during 2012. These Volkswagen coupes are small cars, mainly aimed at environmentally conscious city dwellers. They are expected to cost around $12,000.

Large, sporty coupes are also produced by Toyota and Mercedes, while Vauxhall, Renault and Ford produce smaller 2 door coupes.
