‘Coop’, or ‘coop-ay’. No matter how you pronounce it, coupe sounds like a fancy French vehicle where you shift gears through the French countryside to the chateau where you drink the finest pinot noir. Coupes are generally considered to be the sedan’s sportier cousin, and there’s quite a bit of variation within the class.

What is a coupe?
Put simply, a coupe is a car with two doors, and a closed-off trunk. This is the strict definition of a coupe. However, in recent years, various manufacturers have been more liberal with the name to call any type of sloped-roof sedan a ‘coupe’. A coupe is two doors. That’s it, no if ands or buts. A coupe can have two, four or five seats at a pinch, and includes anything from sports cars to more luxury, grand-touring-type vehicles. Popular makes include the Mazda MX-5, Subaru BRZ, Toyota 86, BMW 1 and 2 Series, various Mercedes SLK series and much more.
What is a gran coupe?
What were we talking about earlier? A coupe is strictly two doors. However, ‘gran coupe’ stretches the definition a bit, and is the definition of a car that has four or potentially five doors. It’s thought that BMW coined the term ‘gran coupe’ and generally refers to any sporty-type sedan with a sloping roof. This cuts down on headroom for the rear passengers, but four or five people can still fit in a pinch.
Fastback vs coupe: what’s the difference?
Speaking of five doors, the difference between a fastback and coupe is that a fastback is technically a third or fifth door. It’s a hatch-style coupe, where instead of a traditional boot, the trunk opens up somewhat like a hatch. This provides easier access to the rear cargo area. Fastbacks were popular back in the 1970s and have recently resurged in popularity. Popular fastback models include the Honda Civic coupe, Lexus LC, Tesla Model 3, and Kia Stinger. Fastbacks can be either two or four door varieties.
