I like both, but the sedans look a little bit more rounded.

I went with the Coupe.
It's just me 99% of the time so I don't need 4 doors.
Coupe slightly lighter weight?
Super Fast, nimble, and looks fine to me!

I have the four door but it was tough decision and basically came down to which car had a 5-speed. I do like the practicality of four doors, as this is my first sedan, my first three cars were coupes. Overall both look good, although the coupe is a bit sportier.

Me and my wife both have the 08......I have the sedan and she got the coupe in Vista Blue. I do think the coupe looks a little more sporty but I actually prefer the sedan myself.............kinda has a look like a IS300 to me.

1. The sedan is much more practical. Getting anything or anyone in and out of the coupe is a pain in the ass. I can barely squeeze myself into the backseat.

2. The seatbelt is several inches further back on the coupe then on the sedan. This may not seem like much of an issue to some but I bodybuild and it's very difficult to reach the seatbelt without completely turning around in the damn seat to reach it.

I have the coupe. My reasons for choosing it were:

1) I preferred the feel of the coupe after test-driving both models
2) I am impressed with its driver visibility and the amount of back seat space (always a deterrent for me buying coupes in the past)
3) I'm not a fan of the side chrome vents but feel they look a little more acceptable with the coupe's styling

I'm confused.......my wife has the coupe and they feel identical in the way they drive. How exactly did you mean that you preferred the feel of the coupe over the sedan?
I'm not trying to be a smart ass either, just curious being that the only difference to me that I've noticed is the doors......

No offense taken! I wasn't expecting a difference in the rides myself, since they are essentially the same car. The coupe's engine felt smoother and peppier to me and felt like it had more pull. Not that the sedan's feel was bad, but I noticed a difference (although it could have been the particular cars I tested) In fact, my boyfriend drove my new car last night for the first time and was very surprised when I told him it has the same engine as the sedan we test-drove together (he never tested the coupe).

i like the Sedan as its more practical and looks good at the same time, they both look good but the coupe is not practical enough anymore.
