Looking for a 2 door car

Either new or up to 4 years old. Looking at cars similar to the 2 door Accord.

You’re not giving us much to work with. Off the top of my head in the Accord range?

Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, Mazda 6, Ford Fusion, Hyunai Sonata, Kia Optima and VW Jetta are all offered in Coupe, I think. Check out Edmunds and Kelley Blue Book under Cars for Sale/Show Me Cars That Meet My Needs and select “Coupe” and any other criteria important to you. “Looking for a 2 door car” is bit vague to start offering suggestions.

I know what models are out there. I was looking for opinions from people who own 2 door cars.

I own a Volvo C30 and it is fan-fucking-tastic.

Fast, practical, sexy and safe.

All of my 2 door cars have been v8 Mustangs. They get good mileage if you stay out of it and have a standard transmission. I could get 30 mpg on the highway with my 4.6L GTs. My current Cobra doesn’t get that, but it’s also got a supercharger and 4.10 gears. It probably only gets 26 or 27 mpg, which is still outstanding for car car with around 450 hp that runs low 11’s in the quarter mile.

Renault Twizy.

Though I’m not sure if you can call those doors.

I have an Audi TT roadster. It is not remotely practical for anything whatsoever but I LOVE my car. I love it enough that I will post into a thread where I am more likely than not being completely unhelpful just to declare how much I love my car.

It has two doors!

That’s still pretty vague… I’m looking for opinions on food… I know what kinds of food there are, but I’m looking for opinions from people who own food.

Two door cars can vary from a 1972 Vega to a 2013 Ferrari. I’m not really sure what you are looking for, but I’ll try anyway.

I own a two door car (also a V8 Mustang). In general… if it is you and at max one other person they are great. They tend to look more “sporty” but if you have a third or fourth passenger they aren’t as practical. Again, this varies greatly on the actual car. A larger car will have more rear seat room, and a smaller one is better suited for a bag of groceries.

Oh… here’s something you may not have thought about. Two door cars tend to have longer doors than 4 door cars. That means that you have to be more careful to avoid giving door dings to those you park next to.

Other than that I got nuthin.

I really love the look of these cars and am a big fan of hatchbacks. I need to hit the Volvo dealr and give one a test drive. :slight_smile:

As **Jake Jones **said above, you’re not giving us much to go on but okay.

I have a 2011 Honda CRZ. Yes, it is a 2-door. When I first purchased it, I wasn’t in love. I’m still not, but it has grown on me.

Biggest pluses

  • 43 MPG - The most fuel-efficient car I’ve owned since my 1982 Chevy Sprint
  • Space-age looks, inside and out. Driver’s side feels like a cockpit
  • 6-speed manual transmission (I think the only existing manual transmission hybrid)
  • 3 driving modes: Econ (most fuel efficient), Normal, and Sport (most fun)
  • Nice growl and quick pick-up in Sport mode
  • Gadgets - If you like buttons and gauges and displays that tell you tons of stuff, yeah, this car has them
  • Nice sound system, with accurate integrated navi
  • Really low center of gravity, giving a more sporty feel when driving
  • Lots of storage for such a small car

Biggest minuses

  • Blind spots galore
  • Typical hybrid split back window, which obstructs your view
  • 2 compartments where the back seats should be

Is there any particular reason you want a two-door? The trend that’s coming down the pike with bigger cars is “four dour coupes” which still have the general shape you’d normally have on a 2-door car, including a little bit more room up front, but with back doors. I personally wouldn’t exclude a car just because it’s not offered in a four door.

(I assume you probably don’t want to hear about my 2-door pickup truck.)

I’ve got a Fiat 500 Pop (the basic model) with manual transmission. It’s a fun car, nicely appointed for the price. ($15500)

Wow. So you’re seeking opinions of people you’re not willing to share anything with. You know what? Buy a 2 door Accord. And call it a Coupe, like the grown-ups do. I won’t share anything else in this thread, including my opinion about your attitude.

I have a two-door Hyundai Accent hatchback that I really like. I’ll be replacing it soon with a 4-door something or other, but if I was sticking to two doors I’d be looking at a Fiat, the Hyundai Veloster (actually 3-doors), or maybe the new Dodge Dart (at least I think it has a coupe option).

Well, the first, most obvious question is why you’re not just buying another two-door Honda Accord. Is there something missing from it that you want in the next car? Or is it just too boring? (I’m on my third Honda, so I know that they can be a little dull. Reliable, yes, but dull.)

I had a 4 door Accord until a bad driver totaled it last week. I test drove a 2 door accord but it is still pretty big. I like smaller cars so that’s why I am looking for a coupe. I never liked that big Accord so I am not sad to see it go.

Sorry, it was a 4-door, but the Mazda 6 I drove was pretty nice. Auto, with whatchamacallit, the side area on the gear shift that lets you pretend you have a manual. I have also been in an older (05-06?) 4-door Mazda 3 manual and a much older 2-door Mazda 323. My friend likes them and that back seat wasn’t too cramped.

If you like Hondas and want something smaller, try the Fit. It has four doors but is small. And yet, you can carry lots of stuff in it, which you need to do from time to time. Honda has a few other models to consider as well, like the Civic or the CR-Z.

CRZ does not have very good mileage for a hybrid and its performance is not very good. And it has no back seat. Those are 3 big negatives for me.

Test drove a civic coupe so that is now #1 on my list. I wish there was a Corolla coupe but they only make sedans.

I have a 2 door car. It’s a 1987 Ford Escort, and it was a 4 door until the two passenger-side doors fell off. It’s very inexpensive to operate since I never have to use the air conditioner, and it serves as a shelter for the local wildlife when I’m not driving it.
