For the record I lean just a bit more toward the coupe, but I suspect some colors look better on one body rather than the other.

Now, a comment: You might consider rewording your post above, or making this a "poll only" if that's possible. We are not allowed to make critiques of the design we don't prefer? Reasons for owning one over the other will necessarily involve some "negative" comments about the model not chosen. If only "positive" remarks are allowed, why even bother having posts at all? This just seems illogical or unreasonable censorship of a sort.

I'm in an '08 Coupe. I think the Sedan looks more natural, and is definitely more practical (I have a 15-month old), but the Coupe is nice too.

I think it boils down to :

Coupe = For more sporty look.
Sedan = For practicality, normal look.

I'd get the sedan, it looks just as nice and my kids can roll down their rear windows. If the coupe had roll down rear windows, I'd buy whichever one is lighter.

If I had to pick one it'd be the sedan...something about the coupe just doesn't sit right with me, it kind of looks like the design team just half-assed it to get it out the door. And I usually prefer 2-doors...

I like the sedan better. It accomodates the family and a bit cheaper on insurance.

I voted sedan, which is something because I'm a two door kinda guy (what the hell are the other 2 doors for anyways?) I think the sedan just looks better than the coupe; but I honestly don't like either... I just miss hatchbacks ==Sadface==

I vote Coupe.
Reason(s):
1. I (personally) think it looks better than the sedan & just prefer coupes
2. It also looks sportier.
3. I usually am alone or with 1 other passenger & I am never having children; so no need for 4-doors.
4. I own an '08 Coupe
