Two-door cars are also known as coupes, though there are some models that feature hatchback designs. Many are based on a corresponding four-door sedan or more of a performance-oriented vehicle.
Lower-priced coupes and hatchbacks tend to cost about the same or even slightly less than their four-door counterparts, while premium coupes are often several hundred dollars more than their sedan counterparts.
Economy coupes and hatchbacks generally use efficient four-cylinder engines that can return as much as 10 -12 Km/litre. Most offer at least passable acceleration, and sport variants can be downright quick. Most midsize coupes use larger engines that deliver more exciting performance but reduced fuel economy. Luxury coupes often employ high-powered four-, six- or eight-cylinder engines that provide thrilling performance, and thanks to the increased use of turbocharging, far superior fuel economy than past models.
Shoppers should find features like antilock brakes, front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and stability control as standard on every model. Rearview cameras are also increasingly standard, while high-tech electronics that warn inattentive drivers of blind-spot intrusion and impending collisions have migrated from strictly the luxury realm down to mainstream brands. Shoppers should also be aware of crash test scores produced by NHTSA and the IIHS.
Luxuries like rearview cameras, automatic climate control, heated seats, smartphone interfaces, navigation systems, keyless start systems and Bluetooth capability can often be found in non-luxury coupes. Look for them as you shop. For coupe buyers, access to the rear seat is almost always tricky, and the presence of features that simplify the journey into the back is always welcome. Look for front seats that automatically return to their previous position and seatbelts that move out of the way for rear occupants but are still easily accessible for the driver.
Although coupes have backseats, they characteristically offer very limited passenger room. Headroom in particular often suffers as the result of steeply raked back windows. While some coupes have room for three people in back, many have room for two only, with bucket-like seats.
Typically, a coupe body style denotes a car with two doors and a trunk. Long the favorite of style-conscious buyers who don't require the added room and practicality of a sedan, the coupe trades the more passenger-friendly design of an upright four-door architecture for the sleeker, sportier styling that is the coupe's hallmark. As such, these coupes have longer doors and front seatbacks that flip forward to allow passengers somewhat awkward access to the rear quarters. The strong appeal of a coupe's attractive styling has made them integral to nearly every segment, ranging from economical compacts to large, luxury brand models. More modern times have seen the definition of a coupe blurred by a few manufacturers, notably BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Those premium German brands brought to market the idea of a four-door coupe, which is essentially a sedan with a low, coupe-like roofline. Examples of these four-door coupes that blend the sleek styling of a coupe with the practicality of a sedan include Mercedes-Benz's CLS and BMW's Gran Coupe models. Whether you are considering a traditional coupe or one of the slightly more practical four-door variants, a coupe offers a combination of eye-catching style and sporty personality that you just can't get in a traditional sedan or hatchback.
