    • why did you say the ride quality of the cla was bad? its one of the most agile cars in the road, despite the fwd... the amg devours corners at a rate your e wagon would not even dream about.

  • You couldn’t find four door coupes from the past? Remember the Rover P5B 3.5 coupe? It was a four door in the 60s and 70s. Aside from that you’re totally correct, the bmw and the Mercedes four door coupes are both useless and ugly.

  • Even though I drive a BMW X6 Sports Activity "Coupe" - which I would never refer to as a coupe myself even - I had a good laugh! Thanks Hoovie!

  • The 1962 Rover P5B coupe was a 4 door. I could never figure out why it was called a coupe.

  • The Mercedes A class and CLA have more power than the honda accord civic and the toyotas of the category and way better quality according to my personal experience and to to be honest I know the CLA ia the entry level of Mercedes and many say is not even a real mercedes but is way above any jappanese car even lexus in bmw due to their each year lower quality is a shame

  • First of those "coupe" sedans was for me Passat CC. which stands for Comfort coupe if I remember correctly. But they are all just less practical sedans.

  • I think the auto engineers refer to a coupe as a vehicle with less than 32 cu ft in the back seat. In general, if the back seat is cramped, it's a coupe. It has nothing to do with the number of doors.

  • I am crying, I used to be the most DIE HARD BMW FAN in the country! I regret to say: BMW has lost their mind, and their *taste* as well! What the hell BMW????????

  • 0:31 couldn't agree more. BMW reminds me of the new Jetta. I recently talked to workers at the dealership and the consensus was that this was being done to "Americanize" Volkswagen's lineup. I asked is that why you guys are getting rid of manuals???? and they bluntly shook their heads and said yes. So there you have it European vehicles being americanized for American consumers..... many people who will never take their vehicles on a track or the Autobahn and in my personal opinion have some of the most shittiest tastes in the world.

  • Why don't they just call them FASTBACKS? Honestly. I know, a fastback is technically a car with a single downward slope from the back of the roof to the rear bumper, but I'll give them some slack on this one. It's so much more fitting and just sounds better. Damn it, BMW. Coupe actually means something.

  • Grüße aus Deutschland. Danke, dass es einmal jemand klar ausspricht: Design, Bezeichnungen der Motoren, Beliebigkeit an jeder Ecke! Ich wünsche mir da die 80er und bestenfalls frühen 90er zurück, als ein 230E ein 2,3l Aggregat hatte und ein 525i von einem 2,5l 6Zylinder betrieben wurde und als E34 auch noch top aussah! Aber anscheinend "will es der Markt so"... no more words - my next car is much likely to be a used Model S - the not coupe sports limousine... (until sometime in the next 20years, there might be a resurrection of German engineering in the shape of a cleanly designed and handy electric quattro or 3series... dreaming on...)

  • I am a huge bmw fan and own a 2018 1 series myself. However I think that the current designer, is clearly addicted to crack cocaine. I know that most people don’t care, but the change to fwd goes against everything the 1 and 2 series stood for in the first place. I’m just gonna keep my 18’ rwd 1 series.

  • You are very right Tyler, but to be honest many of the new cars specially Mercs and Bimmers look so much alike that its hard to distinguish between a c-class, e-class, s-class. Its more like the same car just a bigger size! They should just name them small, medium, large, x-large...right!

  • uhhh no Coupe sounds so much sportier and nicer than being refered to as a "sedan" which most think of their parents daily grocery getter when the name is brought up. If they were to be honest.. its bcz it sounds way cooler. And you have to cater to your dumbass consumers sooo you have to entice them.

  • when they kinda split up the m2 and m4.. i never got the naming scheme exactly. It was sooo stupid. the m2 has 4 doors and some have 2 doors i guess and m4 is a 2 door coupe... like wtf?back in the day the numbers and everything made sense. you knew a 325 was a 3 series 2.5 liter car. and yes some of the names were a bit off or rounded up like the 750li being a 7 series but only 445hp or whatever... but they really started to fuck things up in recent years. Mercedes too and yes audi as well. Merceedes i recall split up their suv/wagons and whatever and came up with new naming scheme once again, but they all barely make sense. Its truly annoying. Perhaps at least base it off the doors for these cars. all the 2 doors and expand on the name depending whats offered and m4 4 doors. keep the m3 as the suped up performance variant and m5 going one level beyond the m3. This would make more sense to me tbh

  • coupé = chopped off You can chop off the roofline of a 4-door car. I think it's pointless, stupid, and ugly but the logic still holds. Just like not all 2-doors are coupes.
