Coupe vs. Sedan: What are the Differences?


What is a Coupe vs. a Sedan?

It’s important to know the right search terms when looking for your next vehicle. A coupe is generally a two-door car, and these days they are most often sports cars or muscle cars. A sedan has four doors and generally has a standard trunk. To put it in simple terms, a coupe is what a child would draw if asked what a sports car looks like, and a sedan is the simple boxy shape a child would draw if asked what a car in general looks like.

If you’re unsure of what is a coupe vs. a sedan or wondering what the difference is between a coupe and a sedan in terms of how they fit your lifestyle, you’ve come to the right place. If you have any further questions, be sure to drop us a line. Otherwise, read on for more details.

Sedan vs. Coupe: Doors, Style, Practicality

When it comes to choosing between sedan vs coupe for your next car, there are several important factors to consider:

  • Doors and Accessibility: There are several coupes, including the Dodge Challenger, that offer back seats. The Challenger’s rear seats are actually far roomier than in most coupes. That said, those rear seats are far easier to reach when they have their own set of doors, such as with a sedan. With a coupe, the front passengers must exist first, then move the seat. With a sedan, everyone just opens their own door.
  • Exterior Style: Coupes have always been the sleeker and more aesthetically-oriented body style, when compared to sedans. All purpose-built sports cars have the coupe-style, as well as most muscle cars. That said, these days the once-ungainly sedan has a few examples which are just as alluring as coupes. A good example of a sedan with serious styling would be the Dodge Charger.
  • Interior Size: Sedans generally have far more room inside than coupes, since the quartet of doors sedans have allows that large amount of interior space to be easily used. A coupe is much harder to justify as a family car than a spacious and practical sedan.
  • Cargo Space: San Antonio drivers looking for cargo space can find as much trunk space in some coupes as sedans, but that is uncommon as coupes have become more specialized for style and less for practicality. Sedans do have far more passenger space than coupes, and that space can be used for cargo.
