A coupe is generally thought of as a closed-body style, 2-door car, often sporty in nature. A coupe generally has either 2 seats, or 4 seats placed in a 2+2 configuration, meaning that there are only 2 seats in the rear (as opposed to the standard 3,) and those seats are smaller than average.
What is the difference between the Honda Civic EX and Honda Civic DX? The Civic EX has far more standard equipment than the DX, and a different engine. Not to mention that all the moldings and mirrors are all painted to match the vehicle, and … the dx engine is 1.6 Non VTEC (from 96-00, 1.5L non v-tec from 92-95).
