What is a coupe?
If you like to turn heads, then a coupe could be the car for you!
The choice of a coupe is definitely a heart and not a head choice; although some models are now a little more practical, in general the low, sleek shape of a coupe makes it much less practical than other bodystyles; but when your car attracts admiring glances wherever you go…who cares!
Should I buy a coupe?
We know they look great, but you need to ask yourself these 5 questions:
•Am I prepared to sacrifice some practicality for good looks?
•Are my children small enough to be comfortable in the rear seats?
•Will my children out-grow it relatively quickly?
•If you carry elderly passengers, will they be able to access a low-slung car?
•Is it time for me to have something just for me?
The coupe’s distinctive style comes from having two larger doors, with a roof that sweeps dramatically down towards the rear; is it practical, I hear you ask? Well, for a family with adult-sized teenage children, probably not, but 2+2 models can accommodate young children meaning mum and dad can live the dream!
Whilst the coupe shape never really changes, you can select a coupe in many different sizes from compact right up to grand tourer. Manufacturer’s are trying to bring a little more practicality to the bodystyle by keeping the slinky shape, but adding rear doors to allow for larger rear seat passengers.
