ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

If you're interested in a sporty new car, you may have discovered that most new performance vehicles can be pretty expensive. After all, it's rarely cheap to combine high-performance powertrains, sleek styling and high-tech features in one vehicle. Fortunately, there's a solution for drivers on a budget: Consider a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle instead of a new one. Certified pre-owned vehicles boast lower prices than new cars but still tout the peace of mind that comes with a manufacturer-backed warranty. To show you what we mean, we've rounded up seven excellent certified pre-owned coupes for drivers on a budget.

Audi A5

The Audi A5 is one of our favorite coupes, largely due to its handsome styling, well-appointed interior, available all-wheel drive and adequate performance. Our only problem is pricing, as the A5 starts around $41,500 with shipping -- and that's before you add desirable options like Bluetooth audio, mobile Wi-Fi, parking sensors and a backup camera. The solution? Consider a certified pre-owned A5, as there are more than 130 available on Autotrader for $40,000 or less -- and many for around $30,000. Not only will you get a handsome coupe with brand-new styling, but you'll also get the brand's impressive certified pre-owned warranty that lasts for 6 years or 100,000 miles from the car's original sale date.

BMW 1 Series

Although the BMW 1 Series Coupe is no longer on sale, there are still more than 110 certified pre-owned examples listed on Autotrader -- and their average list price is just $26,100, which is a great deal for a nearly new BMW. It's an especially great deal when you consider the 1 Series' many benefits, which include excellent styling, a well-built interior and a choice between two perky powertrains: a 230-horsepower 6-cylinder in the 128i and a 300-hp 6-cylinder in the more muscular 135i. Regardless of which one you choose, you'll get BMW's excellent certified pre-owned warranty, which lasts for 6 years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date.

Chevrolet Camaro

Although base-level versions of the Chevrolet Camaro aren't especially expensive to buy -- the coupe starts at just $24,700 with shipping -- you'll have to spend a lot more if you want the latest gadgets and features. You'll also have to spend a lot more if you want the car's powerful 426-hp V8, which is optional. But you can save money by going with a certified pre-owned model, which is available on Autotrader for an average price of just $22,200 (for a V6) or $29,900 (for a V8-powered Camaro SS). The icing on the cake is that you'll get Chevy's certified pre-owned warranty, which offers bumper-to-bumper coverage for up to 12 months and 12,000 miles and powertrain protection for 5 years or 100,000 total miles.

Honda Accord Coupe

If you're interested in practicality and ease of ownership from your coupe instead of all-out performance, you may want to consider a Honda Accord Coupe. While new pricing isn't especially expensive (the Accord Coupe starts around $24,700 with options), certified pre-owned coupes are available on Autotrader for an average price of just $19,700 -- a figure that includes many high-end EX and muscular V6-powered models, which cost much more to buy new. Best of all, each certified pre-owned Accord Coupe comes with the brand's excellent warranty, which boasts powertrain coverage for up to 7 years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date.

Hyundai Genesis Coupe

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a handsome 2-door 4-seater with rear-wheel drive and two potent engine options: a turbocharged 4-cylinder and a muscular V6. While a new Genesis Coupe can be a bit pricy at around $27,500 before options, the current model has been on sale for a while -- and that means there are deals to be had on used versions. For example, the average certified pre-owned Genesis Coupe on Autotrader is listed at just $18,800 with shipping. Not only is that a good deal, but it comes with Hyundai's excellent certified pre-owned warranty, which offers 5 years or 60,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage and 10 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain protection from the original sale date. Our only advice: If you're especially interested in performance, you'll want your Genesis Coupe to be a 2013 model or later, as both engines got a big hp bump that year.

Infiniti G37

Now called the Q60, the former Infiniti G37 Coupe is pricy as a new vehicle, with a starting MSRP of nearly $42,000 with shipping. But drivers who don't need the new name can choose a certified pre-owned model and save a lot of money, as a CPO G37 Coupe is available on Autotrader for an average price of around $28,500. You'll get the same powerful 330-hp V6 as the new model, along with the same styling -- and you'll also get Infiniti's comprehensive certified warranty, which lasts for up to 6 years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Although you might think of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class as a sedan, there are currently more than 300 different certified pre-owned C-Class coupes listed for sale on Autotrader. While some newer models can be pricy, choose a 2013-or-older C250 Coupe, and you'll be rewarded with a handsome, well-designed car that boasts a peppy 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and a reasonable average asking price of around $35,000. You'll also get Mercedes' certified pre-owned warranty, which lasts for 1 year and offers unlimited mileage -- though drivers can extend it further for an additional fee.
