Coupe vs. Sedan: What's the Difference?

2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe

When Bridgeport drivers think of the difference between a coupe and sedan, the first distinction that often comes to mind is the number of doors. Typically, coupes have four doors while sedans have two. While this is one distinction, this isn’t the only difference between a coupe and sedan. Take a moment to explore all coupe vs. sedan distinctions at Mercedes-Benz of Charleston.

Sedan vs. Coupe: Differences

There are a few prominent differences between a coupe vs. sedan. The most notable include:

  • Door Count: Usually, though not always, door count is a defining coupe vs. sedan characteristic. Coupes come with two doors and sedans come with four doors.
  • Exterior Style: Get past the door count and shoppers will start to notice other style cues that signify a sedan vs. coupe. The coupe enjoys sportier styling, thanks to shorter stature. Coupes also sport longer doors and longer rear windows. Sedans, however, tend to emphasize luxury styling and their shorter doors provide a well-balanced side profile.
  • Performance: With its decreased weight and smaller size, a coupe delivers sportier performance. Sedans, on the other hand, often compensate for their larger weight and size with more engine options and suspension upgrades.
  • Interior Size: Sedan drivers will normally find seating for five, plenty of head and legroom, and more space for rear passengers. Inside a coupe, the space available for rear passengers is usually smaller and seat capacity is two (traditionally).
  • Cargo Space: Sedans naturally offer more cargo space, as they’re longer by design. If cargo space is a priority, a coupe shouldn’t be your first choice.

Sedan vs. Coupe: Take Your Pick

For those who carry passengers often, have a larger family, or need additional cargo space, a sedan is the smarter pick. If space isn’t as much of a concern, but you love a car with a sporty look and performance to match, then a C-Class Coupe or a similar model may be the car for you. No matter which Mercedes-Benz model you pick, you’ll find premium features and materials to enjoy.
