Used Car Buying 101: Coupes and Sedans, What’s the Difference?

By Ellsworth Mciltrot Subscribe to RSS | July 20th 2012 | Views:

What’s the difference between a coupe and a sedan? Perhaps your answer will be that a coupe only has two doors, while a sedan has four. Although your answer is correct, that’s not all there is to it. In case you haven’t heard, some cars are identified as “four-door coupes” and “two-door sedans” – details which may confuse the average Edmonton car buyer.

No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. It’s not even like you’re trying to fit a square peg into a round hole; four-door coupes and two-door sedans, in fact, do exist. To provide you with a little enlightenment and dispel your confusion, here are a few more detailed and balanced descriptions of coupes and sedans.


The coupe is generally thought of as a two-door vehicle with a closed body, which is often sporty in nature. It can have just two seats or 3 seats consisting of two bucket seats in the front and a bench seat at the rear. In addition, the backseat of a coupe is not a place every passenger would want to sit because it can be a little cramped and uncomfortable.

Technically, a coupe is defined as a convertible or a fixed-top type car with less than 33 cu. ft. of rear interior space. A car with this much rear interior space often has two doors, which is why it has become common practice to classify two-door vehicles as coupes. Yet there are plenty of vehicles out there with two doors and more than 33 cu. ft. at the back. These cars are consequently identified as two-door sedans.


According to dealers of used cars in Edmonton, sedans are generally accepted as four-door cars that can comfortably sit five passengers. A rear interior space equal to or larger than 33 cu. ft. characterizes most sedans. Any vehicle with space smaller than this, even if it has four-doors, is considered a coupe.

People in search of the best used cars Edmonton dealers offer mistakenly think that coupes are easily distinguished from sedans by hatchback rears. While many coupes have hatchback rears, some have traditional trunks. You’ll also find four-door hatchback sedans, which are more popularly known as station wagons.

To differentiate a coupe from a sedan, the best bet is to look at the rear interior space of the used cars in Edmonton you’re planning to buy. Learn more about the different types of cars from
