Coupe vs. Sedan: What's the Difference?

New Coupes and Sedans at Dealership

Charleston drivers buying a new vehicle sometimes end up with one matchup: the coupe vs. sedan. The difference between a coupe and sedan has a simple answer — a coupe has two doors and a sedan has four — and a series of more complex ones. Land Rover Charleston covers the sedan vs. coupe question below!

The Difference Between a Coupe and Sedan

A true sedan vs. coupe comparison involves more than just counting doors. Choosing which one to take you down Huntington or Parkersburg roads involves a few of the following factors:

  • Coupe vs. sedan style: A coupe tends to be a shorter vehicle than a sedan, so it comes with striking accents like longer doors and even longer rear windows. Luxurious stylings are more common on sedans, whose side profile looks more “balanced” to many drivers. 
  • Coupe vs. sedan interior: The door number really affects the interiors of these vehicles. Coupes generally seat two people, while a sedan has the ability to accommodate up to five passengers. If you’re planning on having more passengers, choose a sedan.
  • Coupe vs. sedan cargo space: Coupes are shorter, so they tend to have less cargo space than sedans.

The Difference Between a Coupe and Sedan: How to Choose

Wheeling drivers in need of car buying tips should take all the above factors into consideration when they’re buying a new vehicle. It’s also important to consider factors like interior features, technology, and safety ratings. Think of the purpose of the new vehicle; is it for a smoother commute? Will you need to use it to take passengers and cargo around?

When buying a new or even used vehicle, you’re also considering the price. Tools for valuing your trade-in can also assist your decision-making process! Whether you’re looking for a four-door sedan or three-row SUV, you can find whatever you need at Land Rover Charleston.
