    Are they here to stay or are they going to be out of fashion pretty quickly? Granted, people love to complain about how the term is "inaccurate", but most of the 4-door coupes, especially the Porsche Panamera and BMW 6-series Gran Coupe, have been really nice car designs, and newer models that have switched over to that aesthetic (I.E. Hyundai Sonata) have done real well with it.

      Hi there. That's a great question Evan--I honestly think it's just the beginning for the market of "four door coupes". Despite the name being a total oxymoron (lol), more and more manufacturers are turning to this as more and more people flock from big SUV's and sedans to four door coupes and traditional coupes--especially the younger generation. BTW, the Hyundai Sonata is a four-door coupe?? I'm pretty sure this isn't correct, but I've been wrong plenty of times before, lol.

      Among my favorite sedan-coupe hybrids (as I coin them, lol) are the Mercedes CLS-class and Aston Martin Rapide....the Porsche Panamera would have been on the list if only interior styling were taken into account--but the exterior is just ugly, lol.

        I would consider the Sonata to be one even though it has a far more spaceous interior and is higher than the others. Although apparently Hyundai is doing a new 4 door coupe Sonata (another one) based off of the iFlow concept. I'm all for variety, and Hyundai has been hitting home run after home run lately.

        I like the 'box car' xB, Soul etc influx too. They make a good option now that I have a baby on the way, yet don't want a minivan or SUV. I'd love to see a German maker jump on board this new trend - I would wager VW and BMW as the most likely to hop onto this bandwagon first.

          O yeah I definitely agree with you about's stepped up its game in the last few years waaaaaaaay more than anybody ever anticipated I think....finally I think it'll be a really competitive brand towards Toyota, Nissan, Honda, etc etc.

          I can't say that I'm a fan of the "box car" form such as the xB or Honda Element---but hey, everyone has their own particular tastes--I love SUV's like the Mercedes ML550 and Range Rover and cars such as the Mercedes E-Class and Jaguar XF
