Coupe vs. Sedan: What’s the Difference?

2020 E-Class Coupe

Common knowledge says sedans have four doors and coupes have two, but that’s not the only difference between coupes and sedans. Look into the way that performance, style, and space set sedans and coupes apart with this quick guide from Mercedes-Benz of Cincinnati.

What is the Difference Between Coupes and Sedans?

There are a few ways in which these two vehicle types set themselves apart from one another, including:

  • Door Count: Perhaps the most immediate difference between the coupe vs. sedan is the door count. Typically, coupes come with two doors while sedans offer four doors.
  • Exterior Style: The sportier look of the coupe includes longer doors and longer rear windows. These style adjustments are made due to the shorter stature of the coupe’s body. Sedans offer a more balanced side profile with four shorter doors, as they often focus on luxury.
  • Interior Size: Sedans like the E-Class and C-Class typically offer more space for rear passengers than coupes, with seating for five and plenty of room in the rear seats. With coupes, you can usually only seat two in the back, as they’re normally smaller than sedans.
  • 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.
  • Performance: The decreased weight and size of the coupe lends itself to a sportier, more agile performance. Meanwhile, sedans come with more powerful engine options and suspension upgrades to compensate for their larger size.

Deciding Between a Sedan vs. Coupe

Families, those who frequently carry passengers, and those in need of more cargo space will appreciate the roomy nature of a sedan. If you’re inclined to appreciate sportier handling, and space isn’t as much of a concern, then a coupe may be the vehicle for you. Browse the features that come with both models to ensure you’re getting exactly what you have in mind for your drives around Blue Ash.
