Coupe vs. Sedan: What’s the Difference?

2020 Hyundai Elantra Sedan

When you’re shopping for a new car in the Anderson area you’ll likely hear the terms coupe and sedan. What’s the difference between a coupe and sedan? They’re two different car body styles that you see every day on the streets around . Here are the details of sedan vs. coupe: 

Difference Between Coupe and Sedan

A lot of people think sedan vs. coupe comes down to the number of doors. That’s just part of the difference. Others are more subtle but can make a difference depending on your driving style in . Let’s take a closer look: 

Sedan vs. Coupe

For a specific comparison between coupe vs. sedan, take a look at the 2020 Hyundai Elantra sedan and the 2020 Hyundai Veloster coupe. Here’s what you’ll notice: 

  • Number of Doors: Coupes come with two doors and sedans come with four doors. 
  • Appearance: Coupes tend to be shorter, resulting in styling adjustments that include longer doors and longer rear windows. Sedans, on the other hand, tend to emphasize luxury styling, and the shorter doors provide a balanced side profile. For some passengers it’s easier to get in and out of a sedan’s back seat. 
  • Performance: Since coupes are smaller with lower weights, they lend themselves to a sportier performance. Sedans often have additional engine options and suspension upgrades to compensate for their size.
  • Passenger Space: Sedans typically offer seating for five, ample head and leg room, and more space for rear passengers than coupes. The space available for rear passengers is typically smaller for a coupe and can usually only seat two.
  • Cargo Space: Sedans are longer by design so they naturally offer more trunk space. Coupes have less trunk and backseat space.

Sedan vs. Coupe: Which One’s Right for Me? 

Coupes are great for drivers who will be driving fewer passengers and less cargo. They’re also great for drivers who want the range of performance typical of sportier cars. If you have more passengers on a regular basis, need more trunk space, and need a car that’s easier to enter and exit, a sedan is a better option.
