Sedan vs. Coupe: What’s the Difference?

2020 Nissan Versa Sedan

You might already think you know the answer to this question, but knowing the difference between the sedan vs. coupe is more than just the number of doors! Kareem Auto Sales Inc is here to help explain the difference between the sedan and coupe in-depth, which will help you select the right car for your Elk Grove commute. Find out if that used Kia you’re looking at qualifies as a sedan or coupe today.

Key Differences When Exploring Sedans vs Coupes

You can find a brief, though by no means full, list of the differences between these two styles of cars:

  • Door count: Door count is the most obvious difference, as coupes will have two doors, while sedans have four.
  • Performance: Coupes usually run smaller, which gives them a performance more akin to a sports car because of reduced weight. Sedans, meanwhile, will usually have additional engine options and suspension upgrades.
  • Exterior style: Sedans emphasize luxury styling, with shorter doors versus the coupe which will have longer doors and windows, but typically are shorter than sedans.
  • Interior size: With their increased sizes, sedans will usually have seating for five, with plenty of head and legroom. Coupes typically can only seat two due to their smaller size.
  • Cargo Space: In terms of cargo space, sedans are going to be head and shoulders above coupes in terms of available cargo space.

Sedan vs. Coupe: Which is Better for You?

If you’re looking for a model that can move a larger family, or if you frequently carpool with additional passengers. The extra space offered by the sedan is also ideal if you find yourself needing additional cargo room. But in terms of performance, looks, handling, and more when cargo isn’t a concern, the coupe is the ideal choice. However, it is best to review the features offered by both styles to find the right model for you.
