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.

Make sure you look at the features across both models so you know you are getting what you need. Either way, you can find your next sedan or coupe with Sam Leman Chevrolet Bloomington
