Default Honda Accord 2008 Coupe : Below Avg Cost of Ownership?

Hi, I have a question about Accord 2008.I recently visited Honda website and it says that Accord coupe, thinking about buying one, has a below average ownership cost, but Accord sedan has excellent ownership cost. Why is this?And if you know, what's the major difference between LX-S and EX? I don't believe that there's that much of difference?

I know years ago sedans had lower insurance rates than coupes. I assume that is still true.From the EX page athttp://automobiles.honda.com/accord-...el=CS1178JWFor those who want an extra level of refinement and comfort, there is the Accord EX Coupe. In addition to or replacing the features of the LX-S, you'll enjoy a one-touch power moonroof with tilt feature, heated power side mirrors and power windows with auto-up/down for both the driver's and front passenger's windows. Premium interior accents and blue ambient console lighting are included, along with a 270-watt AM/FM/6-disc in-dash premium audio system with 7 speakers including subwoofer.Comparing the list of features on that page to the list of features for the LX-S athttp://automobiles.honda.com/accord-...el=CS1138EWthe differences are1) The following on the LX-SPower Windows with Auto-Up/Down Driver's Window160-watt AM/FM/6-Disc In-Dash Audio System with 6 SpeakersBody-Colored Power Side Mirrorsare replaced byPower Windows with Auto-Up/Down Driver's and Front Passenger's Windows270-watt AM/FM/6-Disc In-Dash Premium Audio System with 7 Speakers including SubwooferBody-Colored Heated Power Side Mirrorson the EX.(2) The following are added on the EXPower-Assisted Ventilated Front Disc/Solid Rear Disc BrakesDriver's Seat with Manual Height AdjustmentIlluminated Steering Wheel-Mounted Cruise and Audio ControlsBlue Ambient Console LightingOne-Touch Power Moonroof with Tilt FeatureSecurity System.

According to Edmunds.com True Cost of Ownership the coupe costs about $1500 more than the sedan to own over 5 years and a little over half of that is due to insurance.I'm guessing that when they compare cost of ownership they are comparing the coupe against other coupes and sedan against other sedans and the Scion TC (which is only available in Coupe form) has a lower total cost than the larger coupes like the Accord, Altima, and Solara.
