Default Question of the Week: Would you be more inclined to be a Dart coupe?

Ive talked to a handful of people who dont like the new Dodge Dart because it is a sedan rather than a coupe. Whether you are bothered by the new Dart being a said or not, would you be more inclined to buy a new Dart if there was a coupe offered?

I would love it as a coupe. The problem is, the coupe would never last.
There are literally only three coupes that are successful: the Mustang, Camaro, and the Challenger.

There is also the Nissan Altima coupe and the Honda Accord coupe. Sales of coupes are spit in a swimming pool compared to the sales of sedans of any manufacturer. Sedans are more practical time and time again, and an individual that buys a coupe will have less need for utility than the regular person, so I think that having a hi-po little car that is punchy, and 4 doors would be a better choice than making it a 2 door.

Yep he is right. AWD and make it fast....I'd rather it handle than have only two doors. Just look at the following the WRX has. Oh an make it so you don;t have to fix it all the time. That would help.

I would rather have a sedan, or better yet a 5 door wagon. The Dart needs a SRT makeover big time is all. In a perfect world, I could buy a SRT dart diesel that pounds the pavement while getting 45 mpg.

I would look @ a 2dr. No small 4 dr excites me. I am over 6ft...275 lbs. I do have a Magnum...big doors. No b-piller @ my shoulder making me uncomfortable. Also..not convinced about an Alpa Chassie in the states. Vehicles I am fiddling with are Rampages and Shelby Chargers. Again...no b-piller taking up room.

If the coupe version had a Pentastar V6 and a manual, yes. Otherwise, no. It is underpowered, not very fuel efficient for what it is, the only thing about it that is Dodge is the badge as the engines are either a retuned Hyundai I4 or Fiat turbo I4, the transmissions are either Hyundai or Fiat, and the platform is a Fiat. If I wanted a Hyundai or a Fiat, I would buy either a Hyundai or Fiat. I want a Dodge not a car that is labeled as a Dodge; therefore, why would I want to buy a car that says Dodge which is in truth a Hyundai, Fiat, Mercedes, or Mitsubishi? History as shown that this strategy hasn't worked yet they never seem to learn from it.
