Considered sporty and personal, a coupe is a long-running body style in automobile circles. Derived from the days when horse-driven carriages were popular, the term coupe was initially applied to closed carriages without rear-facing seats. Created for an intimate driving feel, coupes provide a broad range of motoring tastes and budgets. Interiors of coupes receive specific design focus around reinforcing the performance feel for driver and front seat passenger. Reasonably comfortable for front row occupants, the limited seating room found on most coupes makes the vehicle type less suitable for families with older children. If searching for an affordable coupe, vehicles such as the Honda Civic and Hyundai Elantra provide a sense of sporty style for a budget. Looking for a greater amount of comfort and features at a higher price, a series of premium coupes such as the Audi A5 is available. The term coupe has a habit of appearing on vehicles that do not adhere strictly to a so-called three-box body design involving a separate trunk. The coupe name is often applied to describe hardtop, two-door sports cars like the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray or the Jaguar F-Type Coupe. Traditionally with automobiles, the accepted notion of a coupe was the presence of just two doors. For buyers who want the sleek, sportiness of a coupe but want more than two doors, a styling evolution with some premium car manufacturers creating four-door coupes could be a consideration. Potential buyers of coupes should be aware that insurance costs are generally higher than with a comparable sedan.
