Coupe Newmarket

What is the difference between a sedan and a coupe in Newmarket? This is a very general question that doesn’t have a universally correct answer. One doesn’t have any absolute advantage over the other. It essentially boils down to which one serves your situation and needs best. A sedan is bigger, less efficient, has a larger turning radius, etc, but if you often have back passengers, of course it has a huge advantage over a coupe. On the other hand, a coupe is a lot more fun to drive, so it all depends on what you are looking for and how you drive. Whatever the reason is that you have for looking for a coupe vehicle, one thing is certain, The selection and quality you are wanting is at Pfaff VW in Newmarket.

Let’s take a look at some of the differences between a coupe in Newmarket and a sedan:


Number of Doors:

To most people, the defining difference between a coupe and a sedan is the number of doors that the car has. A coupe traditionally has two doors, while a sedan has four doors. This difference has become somewhat harder to follow in recent years, as many automakers have added a third door to the standard coupe or modeled the bodies of four-door sedans after coupes. A Coupe in Newmarket tends to have longer doors, which can make getting in and out of the car difficult when parked in a tight space. Having only two doors can make getting into the backseat or cargo area of a coupe more of an ordeal, especially for older drivers and passengers. The standard size doors of a sedan, especially the two doors for the backseat, make the sedan easier to get into and provide better access to passenger seating. This is a feature that is usually important to parents with young children, whom they have to help in and out of the car.


Passenger Seating:

Traditional coupes have only a driver’s seat and front passenger seat, with no passenger seating in the back. Over the years, some coupe vehicles have evolved into four-passenger cars with the addition of small back seats. Coupes that do have back seats typically have two bucket-style seats located behind the two front seats, instead of a three-person bench, which is found in most sedans. If you regularly drive with passengers, maybe a coupe in Newmarket is not for you, but if you don’t, having small back seats probably won’t bother you that much.

Cargo Space:

A traditional coupe has no more than 33 cubic feet of interior space. By definition, anything over 33 cubic feet of interior space qualifies as a sedan. Cargo (or storage) space is usually measured as the interior space behind the front seats. Cargo space for a coupe depends largely on the seating configuration of the car. A coupe with no back seat may have a large trunk, and a four-seater coupe could have fold-down seats in the back.  Many newer coupes have an impressive amount of cargo space, like the Volkswagen GTI (22.8 cubic feet).



With fewer seats and passengers, and (usually) a smaller body, a coupe in Newmarket is inherently lighter than a sedan, which results in the coupe having greater performance, even if both have equal horsepower. Smaller, sleeker coupes have a smaller turning radius and are more aerodynamic, which again leads to performance superiority over a sedan. Not all sedans are created equal, though. BMW and Audi make some powerful sport sedans that compete well with a standard coupe.


These are just a few things to consider when you are deciding if you want to drive a coupe in Newmarket, a sedan, or another type of vehicle. There are many different types of vehicles out there, and everyone’s tastes are different.
