Has anyone driven and compared these two vehicles (2012 or 2013s)? I was blown away by the cornering and handling ability of the Coupe and wanted to know if a Sport Line with its sport suspension option would have comparable ride and handling as the Coupe. I know that the engines are different, but I'm only interested in opinions on the handling and ride. There's only one Coupe left and so I have to decide ASAP.


The cars handle very similarly though the Sedan is larger.

Be advised that this is the very last year of the Coupe which first arrived in 2006, so instead of buying in the 1st calendar year of the new Sedan bodystyle you'd be buying the 7th calendar year of the old bodystyle. Come Spring, the new version of the Coupe will hit the streets and you'll be driving a car that's already obsolete from a design perspective.
