Coupe vs. Sedan: What’s the Difference?

It may seem to most Orange Park drivers that the difference between a coupe and sedan is obvious – a coupe has two doors, a sedan has four – but that’s not all that distinguishes a coupe from a sedan. In this guide from Honda of the Avenues, we’ll take a closer look at the differences between a coupe and sedan so you can decide which is the better choice for you.

Difference Between Coupe and Sedan

Here are the key differences between these two distinctive vehicle styles:

  • Door Count: The most obvious difference between when comparing coupe vs. sedan is the door count. Coupes come with two doors and sedans come with four doors.
  • Exterior Style: Other styling cues that signify a sedan vs. coupe: A coupe has a shorter stature that includes longer doors and longer rear windows, creating an overall sportier look. As for sedans, they tend to emphasize luxury styling, and the shorter doors provide a balanced side profile.
  • Performance: The sleek, smaller size and decreased weight of a coupe lends itself to more sporty performance. Since sedans are larger and heavier, they often compensate with additional engine options and suspension upgrades.
  • Interior Size: Sedans most often can seat up to five, with ample head and leg room, and more space for rear passengers than coupes. A coupe typically can only seat two, and if there is any room for a rear seat, the space is limited.
  • Cargo Space: Sedans are larger and longer, so they naturally offer more cargo space. If cargo space is a priority for your St. Augustine-area drives, a coupe may not be the best choice.

Sedan vs. Coupe: Which is for Me?

Sedans like the Honda Accord are a better fit if you have a larger family, more frequent passengers, or need additional cargo space. If you prefer a sportier handling and space isn’t as much of a concern, then a Honda Civic coupe may be the vehicle for you. It’s important to make sure you look at the standard and available features across both models so you know you are getting what you need.
