Coupe vs. Sedan: What’s the Difference?

White SUV

If you’re a Providence or East Greenwich car shopper, you may be wondering, “What’s the difference between a coupe vs. sedan?” Generally, sedans have four doors while coupes have two doors. Of course, that’s only one difference between a coupe and sedan. Further compare sedan vs. coupe body styles, thanks to Mercedes-Benz of Warwick’s easy-to-follow guide below.

Difference Between Coupe and Sedan

There are a couple of main differences between these two particular vehicle styles:

  • Door Count: The most noticeable difference between the sedan vs. coupe is the number of doors. Sedans have four doors and coupes have two doors.
  • Exterior Style: Other than door count, there are recognizable style cues that distinguish a coupe from a sedan. The overall sporty look of the coupe not only comes from the short stature but the longer rear windows and longer doors. On the other hand, sedans emphasize their luxurious style with shorter doors that provide a balanced side profile.
  • Performance: Thanks to the decreased weight and size of a coupe, it’s able to provide sportier performance due to its smaller size. The larger size and weight of sedans are usually due to their suspension upgrades and additional engine options available.
  • Interior Size: With a sedan, you can expect five seats, more space for rear passengers, and ample leg and headroom. Coupes offer a smaller amount of room in the rear-seats and typically seat four people, however, you can find coupes with seating for up to five.
  • Cargo Space: If cargo space is a priority, we recommend a sedan over a coupe due to the longer design that naturally provides more cargo space.

Sedan vs. Coupe: Which is for Me?

If you have a large family, need cargo space, or usually have passengers, then a sedan like a Mercedes-Benz A 220 might better suit you. If you’re looking for sportier handling with a limited amount of space, then the Mercedes-Benz CLS 450 Coupe could be a great fit for you. Before choosing your vehicle, explore the different features in both models to see which one meets your driving needs.
