Two Door Vs. 4 Door Car: Which One Should You Buy?


There’s a lot to take into consideration when it comes to choosing between a two-door vs. four door car. Essential factors such as the model, specs, efficiency and insurance coverage should help to guide with your decision between selecting a two-door or a four door car of the same car. In the recent years, more and more car manufacturers are adventurous enough to eliminate some doors from its earlier designs or they would also opt to add some rear doors to an already existing car, to cater to an entirely different demographic preference.

A two door car will operate differently from that of a four door version. Generally, owners of two door car are for those who want to have a sportier driving experience. But for practical drivers who don’t care much about driving a non-sporty car, a four door car is definitely a practical choice. The latter will also be convenient if you are driving with several passengers and it also ideal for families.

Let’s take a look at three examples of automobiles and review how they do well on either their two-door or four-door versions:

2011 Cadillac CTS Sedan

The 2011 Cadillac CTS Sedan was created by the Detroit-based car manufacturer as a fierce rival to a new German luxury four door car that gained substantial prominence in that category for decades. This automobile provides one the choice of having either an automatic transmission or a six-speed manual as well as two V-6 engines delivering a 270 and 306 horsepower. You can also request for premium features to the CTS sedan; its solid chassis adds a whole new dimension to its luxurious performance.

Honda Civic Coupe

The 2011 Honda Civic Coupe offers a sporty-looking option to the Honda Civic Sedan’s four-door car model. Even if its entire design is very much similar to its four-door counterpart, this two-door version grants optimum interior space at the back of the front seats. Honda Civic coupe is a bit more affordable than a sedan, although not necessarily big enough to be a huge deciding factor for many buyers. Technically, this automobile is somewhat identical to the sedan when referring to its base 1.8-liter version as well as its Si model. What’s lacking in Civic coupe lineup can be any of the sedan’s other alternatives, which indicates that there are no hybrid or GX models of the two-door Civic variety are available.

2011 Nissan Altima Sedan

The 2011 Nissan Altima Sedan is a symbol of this Japanese brand’s mid-size family four door car lineup which features superb interior space and top-quality chassis that delivers more compelling driving experience as compared to its competition. Nissan Altima Sedan offers either a 175 horsepower with 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, or a 270 horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine or perhaps a combined model that provides more fuel mileage of 33-mpg both on the highway and the city. This automobile also comes with Nissan’s exclusive and advanced automatic transmissions, which further sets it widely apart from other mid-size sedans in the market.
