Coupe vs. Sedan: What’s the Difference?

Camaro Coupe and Convertible
While many assume the only distinction between coupes and sedans is the number of doors each has, there are a few other differences between these types of vehicles. Find out more about the coupe vs. sedan differences firsthand behind the wheel of a new Chevy.

Difference Between Coupe and Sedan

There are a few main points that differ between these two distinctive vehicle styles. These include:

  • Door Count: The most immediate difference between the coupe vs. sedan is the door count. Coupes come with two doors and sedans come with four doors.
  • Exterior Style: Aside from the number of doors, there are other style cues that signify a sedan vs. coupe. Coupes tend to be shorter, meaning longer doors and rear windows. Sedans, on the other hand, tend to emphasize luxury styling, and the shorter doors provide a balanced side profile.
  • Performance: Since the coupe is a smaller model, it tends to have a sportier performance thanks to the decreased size and weight. Sedans, because of their larger build, often compensate for their larger weight and size with additional engine options and suspension upgrades.
  • Interior Size: 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 couple and can usually only seat two.
  • Cargo Space: Sedans are longer by design so they naturally offer more cargo space. If cargo space is a priority, a coupe may not be the way to go.

Sedan vs. Coupe: Which is for Me?

The answer to this questions depends on what you need. If you tend to have more frequent passengers or additional cargo space, a sedan might be the best option for you. If you prefer a sportier performance, and space isn’t a concern, then a coupe like a Camaro might be the better choice.
