Coupe vs. Sedan: What’s the Difference?

When shopping for a new vehicle at Greenway Honda of Florence, Muscle Shoals drivers have numerous options to choose from. If you need a car, it’s not unusual to find yourself asking “What’s the difference between a coupe and sedan?” Most of our Northern Alabama drivers will point to the number of doors, but it’s just one thing that separates a coupe from a sedan. When you have sedan and coupe versions of Honda’s popular Accord and Civic to choose from, it’s good to have an idea of which is the right body style for you: coupe vs. sedan.

Difference Between Coupe and Sedan Vehicles

These vehicle styles certainly have their own advantages, and one option may be better suited to your driving needs and style:

  • Door Count: The first difference you will likely notice between coupe vs. sedan models is the number of doors each has. Coupes are designed with two doors while sedans come with four doors. 
  • Exterior Style: When it comes to style, it’s not just the doors that separate coupe and sedan. Coupe models often have a shorter stature, and because of this, they have longer doors and longer rear windows. This gives a coupe a more athletic look and feel. Sedans often have a more luxurious look, and shorter doors give sedans a balanced side profile. 
  • Performance: Sedan vs. coupe: which is best when it comes to performance? This typically depends more on what’s under the hood, but most coupes have a sportier look and feel to them that can impact how it feels to be behind the wheel. Sedans can also be a bit larger and heavier, too.
  • Interior Size: If you are looking for more passenger space, a sedan may be your best choice. The rear seat in a coupe is typically a bit smaller and requires lifting up the front seat to get in.
  • Cargo Space: Sedans often provide more room for cargo because of their larger dimensions. 

Sedan vs. Coupe: What Should I Choose?

Throughout the Honda lineup, you will find both coupe and sedan models. When it comes to sedans, the Civic and Accord are two of the most popular options among Tuscumbia and Sheffield drivers. The Civic is also offered in a coupe configuration. So, how do you decide which is right for you? We have provided this quick comparison below. 

  • The 2020 Honda Civic Sedan offers a passenger volume of 97.8 cubic feet and a cargo volume of 15.1 cubic feet.
  • The 2020 Honda Civic Coupe has a passenger volume of 91.0 cubic feet and a cargo volume of 12.1 cubic feet.
  • The 2020 Honda Accord sedan offers 105.6 cubic feet of passenger volume and 16.7 cubic feet of cargo volume (the Accord is currently only available as a sedan but has been available as a coupe in the past).

A sedan is usually the smart choice for a new family car or if you plan to drive friends around The Shoals pretty regularly, but it’s tough to compete with the style of a coupe. If you’re undecided, we recommend at least seeing both in-person.
