Coupe vs. Sedan: What’s the Difference?

mercedes sedan

What’s the difference between a coupe and a sedan? Many Oakville shoppers are under the impression that the difference is simply that a Mercedes-Benz coupe has two doors while a Mercedes-Benz sedan has four doors. While this is one distinction, this isn’t the only difference between a sedan vs. coupe. Explore the other differences between a coupe vs. sedan with Mercedes-Benz Burlington. Then, once Milton drivers have a better idea of which body configuration appeals to them more, fill out a pre-approval, and then call Mercedes-Benz Burlington at 877-557-3007 to schedule for a test drive.

Difference Between Coupe and Sedan

There are multiple factors that distinguish a coupe vs. sedan, the most prominent being:

  • Door Count: One easy-to-spot difference between a coupe and sedan is the door count. A Mercedes-Benz coupe comes with two doors and a Mercedes-Benz sedan comes with four doors.
  • Exterior Style: In addition to the door counts, there are other style cues that signify a sedan vs. coupe. Coupes have a shorter stature which causes exterior adjustments leading to longer doors and longer rear windows, providing an overall sportier look. However, sedans tend to emphasize luxury styling and possess a more balanced profile, thanks to the shorter doors.
  • Performance: The decreased weight and size of the coupe lends itself to a sportier performance. Meanwhile, sedans use suspension upgrades and engine options to offset their larger size and increased weight.
  • Interior Size: When it comes to interior space, sedans offer ample head and legroom, and more space for rear passengers than coupes. The space available for rear passengers is typically smaller for a coupe and can often only seat two.
  • Cargo Space: Sedans provide more cargo space due to their naturally longer frame. If cargo space is a priority, a coupe may not be the way to go.

Sedan vs. Coupe: Which is for Me?

If Hamilton drivers need additional cargo space, have a larger family, or frequently have passengers, a sedan with a roomy interior like the Mercedes-Benz C-Class might be a better fit. If you prefer sportier handling, and space isn’t as much of a concern, then a Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe may be the best vehicle for you. When comparing a sedan vs. coupe, make sure you look at the features across both models, so you know you’re getting what you need.

What is a Wagon?

Wagons are neither sedans nor coupes, but like both of those body styles, they belong to the greater species of “car.” Most brands’ wagons have been phased out and replaced by hatchbacks or crossovers, but the body style is still popular among luxury drivers. A wagon fuses the general format of a sedan and the cargo bay of an SUV, offering you the compact frame and sharp handling of a sedan with the extended back of an SUV. Many other segments like crossovers and hatchbacks also achieve this, but crossovers tend to look more like SUVs, whereas wagons tend to look more like sedans. The difference between a wagon and a hatchback comes down to size—wagons are quite a bit larger.
