Default HONDA CIVIC: HOW COME THE 2 DOORS ARE MORE EXPENSIVE THAN THE 4 DOOR ONES?

IM LOOKING FOR A FIRST CAR AND I ONLY WANT A HONDA CIVIC. I HEARD NOTHING BUT GREAT THINGS ABOUT THIS CAR. I WANTED A TWO DOOR, YEAR 2006-2010. PRICING AROUND 15000 OR LESS. NOT NEW BUT USED. IT IS MY FIRST CAR. BUT I AM LOOKING ONLINE AND I SEE THE TWO DOORS ARE MORE EXPENSIVE THAN THE FOUR DOORS CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHY?? IS THERE A DIFFERENCE? AND IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON HONDA CIVIC FEEL FREE TO TELL ME.















AND WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EX AND LX?

BECAUSE A 4 DOOR IS A FAMILY CAR AND EVERY 19 YEAR OLD IS ALREADY STARTING A FAMILY SO HONDA FIGURED THEY WOULD HELP OUT

Anything that's more desirable is going to cost more than something that is less desirable, so, since more people want to buy the 2-door coupe, they can, and do, charge more for them than they do for the 4-door sedan, that's all.































I have a 7th-Generation 2005 Civic EX Special Edition coupe and I LOVE it. It's a great car, very zippy, and, like all Hondas, it'll last forever.































Just for the record, the EX models have all the bells and whistles, like alloy wheels and stuff like that, so they cost more, while the LX models are more stripped down and cost less.































Good luck!... ?

Coupes, or cars that look like coupes, are often considered to be a bit higher up the food chain than mere sedans, and are priced accordingly. Toyota got more for a Solara than for a Camry, even though the cars were basically identical under the skin. In the case of Civics, while the price differential may vary, demand for the two-doors is usually higher.































Otherwise, the 8th-generation Civic is generally considered a decent buy. EX is a higher trim level than LX. (There is also the low-end DX, and the sports-oriented Si.)

Supply and demand is my only guess, the sedan is $200 more when new which make it more odd. id rather have the 4 door myself.















anyway EX adds a moonroof, rear disc brakes, alloy wheels, chrome exhaust, and a better stereo system.

to put it simply a 4 door or "sedan" is a family car, and a 2 door or "coupe" is considered a sports car.

The reason why is because a lot of young people like to buy the 2 door because it looks better and it's considered a sports car. I have a 2000 Honda Prelude and it's a 2 door sports coupe and it's my first car that I bought when I was 19 and now I'm 21. The insurance on this car is expensive but I love this car and willing to pay for it. I bought it at a dealership 2 years ago for $11,500 and still have 3 years left until it's paid off. I pay $274 a month for the car payment and $250 a month for insurance. My insurance company told me if I had a normal looking 4 door sedan like the Ford Taurus then my insurance would be way cheaper but I wanted a nice looking 2 door coupe for my first car and I got one. I love this car even though it's a cop magnet and I have to pay high insurance for it. My car is red too and I have 5% tint all around so cops follow me a lot but my record is clean so I don't care. I would recommend you take a look at the 2000 or 2001 Honda Prelude and I think you will love it and they are rare cars because they don't make them anymore. You can get one for about $10-$12 grand. The car is 10 years old but they still sell for that much as long as you get a clean stock prelude with at least 130,000 miles or less. Mine had 105,000 miles and preludes handle great, you should get one. Good luck!
