Default Coupe versus sedan? why?

Why do people prefer one over the other?

An obvious one is because of family, so people would choose a sedan.

But other than that why?

I have an older sedan ('95 Civic). I chose that sedan cause I think it looks nicer and it's much easier when transporting friends. That and it's a manual EX sedan that had very low mileage, and was given the very nice Torino Red Pearl paint coat instead of the cheap looking bright Milano Red. All those mixed into 1 EG sedan aren't very common. The 92-95 generation had the nicest sedans in my opinion.

Given the new Honda's though I'd pick the coupes cause the sedans are too egg shaped.

There are a number of reasons. For example, the coupe has longer doors which kinda looks sexy (although you also have to tilt the seats forward to get into the back). The coupe usually has a performance upgrade on the engine that you can't get with the sedan model. The coupe also offers sportier trim packages and will hold its resale value better than the sedan. However, when it comes to safety and practical, everyday use, the sedan is superior.

The sedan is the way to go. Why?? Because its the underdog. Its easy to build a coupe or hatch. With a sedan u have more comfort, u can do a ferio conversion which is rare. But as far as mods...anything u can do in a coupe u can do in a sedan the engine bays are the same. I have 2 sedans cuz they're less practical then other models.
