Default Is a two door Honda Accord Coupe considered a sports car?

And would my ''insurance'' be high because I'm 19?

No. Its just an Accord with 2 doors, insurance shouldn't be much different than a normal Accord, mainly because there is 0 mechanical difference between the two.

There are a couple of other variables in play here.































First off, not all insurance companies will look at your two door coupe the same way. Since we're talking about a Honda Accord, the odds are you'll get a fairly good quote for overall safety.































The theft rate for the Accord depends on where you live, but it is a fairly high demand car for chop shops. So theft insurance might be pricey.































It is not a performance car, even with a V6.































About the worst thing you can tell your insurance carrier is that you drive more than 10,000 miles a year. If you can, be sure to insist this car won't be driven a lot. That will save you tons of money!































And get your price quotes online. They tend to be the best way to document your process.

No it's considered a sports coupe but insurance companies can still look at it like a sports car but since it's an Accord you should be all good. Your insurance will probably be high because of your age and insurance doesn't go down until you hit 25. I drive a red 2000 Honda Prelude and my insurance company considers it a sports car even though it's a sports coupe and I have to pay $250 a month for full coverage and if your car is red some insurance companies will charge you more for insurance because I guess red cars are in more accidents then any other color but it doesn't help that I drive a 2 door sports coupe. I'm 22 now and my insurance is still the same and it sucks because I have a car payment on top of that so I'm paying $524 a month for my car payment and insurance. My insurance company even told me my insurance is that high because of the car I drive and because it's red and if I was driving a Ford Taurus then my insurance would be way cheaper but I love my lude and it's what I wanted to get. I wanted a nice 2 door sports coupe and my favorite color is red so I'm lucky to have it and I don't mind paying for it because once the car is paid off I'm just going to have liability which will save me a lot of money on insurance every month. So good luck but your insurance will probably be high no matter what car you drive just because of your age but it shouldn't be too bad.

Most places don't even consider a civic coupe a sports car. Accords are mid size cars.
