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.

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.

What owners say...

 It's not a practical car, however all the instruments are easy to reach.

 Not a lot, though you could fit a dumpy level and staff in the boot if that is any help.

 can get the children in the rear, which I could not with an Audi TT. fast and rel;atively small. Practicality is not the driver for this purchase.
