ok, when you go to the dealership or on the honda website, they call the coupe a sporty or sports tuned coupe. what are the differences between the coupe and sedan that make it more sporty? i know the seats hug you tighter, but what else?

Go figure !?!?!?

IMO... Both the coupe and sedan are are very sporty. But the auto industry has always refered to coupes as sporty and the sedan as a family car. I guess most people are slow to change.

Because Ferrari Mclaren and co define the word sporty and associate them with coupes.

Honda obviously doesn't know much, and made the si Sedan handle better than most of their coupes.

Shows how much Honda knows about racing. We suck at F1.

The coupe is more "sporty" than the sedan is because
1. Three spoke steering wheel
2. "Sport tuned" dampers and springs
3. Larger Front and Rear stabilizer bars
4. "Sporty" deeper bolsters seats
5. A steeper raked windshield
6. A lip spoiler that creates "downforce" at higher speeds.

The Major exterior styling difference between the coupe and the sedan is (minus the obvious 3rd and 4th doors) the rear end. The Coupe has a more rounded shape while the Sedan is more angular.

Deleted a bunch of posts for elitism, petty squabbling, off topic responses, etc.

Keep it on topic.
