Getting an affordable car under the $5,000 mark doesn't mean settling for a boring car. There are plenty of sporty coupes on the used market that have become excellent values thanks to depreciation. An affordable used coupe is a great way to get a fun set of wheels on a tight budget.

Here are eight good used coupes you can find on Autotrader for less than $5,000 in 2019.

2003-2007 Infiniti G35

2003-2007 Infiniti G35

The Infiniti G35 is a well-rounded luxury coupe that's a stellar value on the used market. It has a nice, upscale cabin with impressive technology for the mid-2000s and an aesthetic that's aging nicely. The G35 does an excellent job at what the Infiniti brand is shooting for, combining luxury and performance in one attractive package. The powerful V6 under the hood will make sure you never get bored from behind the wheel. Find an Infiniti G35 for sale

2003-2007 Honda Accord

2003-2007 Honda Accord

If you're looking for reliability and practicality, but want the sporty styling of a coupe, the Honda Accord coupe is a great choice. It gives you everything that people love about the Accord like good fuel economy and great overall value with a body that's a little more interesting than the more conservative sedan. If you can find one, we recommend the available V6 engine with a manual transmission for a low-key enthusiast car on a budget. Find a Honda Accord for sale

2005-2010 Scion tC

2005-2010 Scion tC

Another practical car in a sporty package is the Scion tC. The tC, like all Scions, was aimed at a youth market when it was new meaning it was big on value with a lot of standard tech features at a low starting price. Adding to the practicality of the front-wheel-drive tC is a roomy cargo area under its rear lift gate. If you want Toyota value and reliability in a car that looks a little cooler than something like a Corolla, the Scion tC is a good choice. Find a Scion tC for sale

2000-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

2000-2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

If you like the idea of a reliable Chevrolet disguised as a muscle car, the final generation of the Monte Carlo might be up your alley. It was basically a coupe version of the Impala, which means it gets respectable fuel economy and a roomy interior, even in the back seat. We think its NASCAR-inspired styling is aging nicely and if you find an 06-07 V8-powered SS model, it has the performance to back up its look. Find a Chevrolet Monte Carlo for sale

1994-2004 Ford Mustang

1994-2004 Ford Mustang

The sweet spot of Mustangs under $5,000 right now is the SN95 generation that ran from the mid-1990s through the mid-2000s. These Mustangs are all over the used market at affordable prices equipped with either a frugal V6 or a strong V8. It went under a heavy refresh for the 1999 model year with what Ford called "New Edge" styling giving it a bit more of a modern look while retaining some retro design cues. Find a Ford Mustang for sale

1997-2002 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class

1997-2002 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class

For a German luxury car on a budget, a Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class is an excellent way to make your friends think you spent more money on your car than you really did.  It could also be had with a V6, or a V8 engine. For the enthusiast, we recommend the hottest engine you can afford. Find a Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class for sale

2003-2008 Hyundai Tiburon

2003-2008 Hyundai Tiburon

The Hyundai Tiburon might be easy to forget, but it was a competitive coupe in its day. The second and final generation of the Tiburon offered a lot of bang for the buck when it was new and it still does today on the used market. The word "Tiburon" means "shark" and that explains the edgy styling of this coupe. This Hyundai's base engine is okay, but we strongly recommend the available, more powerful V6. Find a Hyundai Tiburon for sale

1993-2002 Pontiac Firebird

1993-2002 Pontiac Firebird/Chevrolet Camaro

Before the Camaro's 8-year hiatus and the Firebird's discontinuation, the fourth generation of these mechanically identical cousins offered strong performance on a budget. Available with the now-legendary LS1 V8 engine in the Chevy Camaro SS and the Pontiac Trans AM, these cars are the king of cheap horsepower. The interiors of these used coupes might be a little lacking by today's standards, but that will be easy to forget when you breathe life into either the V8 or the strong V6 under the hood.Find a Pontiac Firebird for sale or Find a Chevrolet Camaro for sale
