Coupes & Convertibles: what's the difference?

Updated: Dec 1, 2023

When it comes to variety, Shazza has all sorts of cars in different types ready for you to hire in Dubai.

Some people know what they want and they go for it! But others are driven (pun intended!) by other things and spend time choosing the right car for them.

One thing we often get asked is about coupes and convertibles - and what the differences are between these two car types.

Naturally, car enthusiasts know the differences and can talk your ear off about it. But for those who need a primer, here’s the lowdown on what the differences are between coupes and convertibles.


Coupes are a type of car with a fixed roof, two doors, and a sleek, sporty design. They typically have seating for two to four people. Coupes are known for their style and performance, and they often have a more aerodynamic and streamlined appearance. Popular coupe examples include the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro, and BMW 4 Series.


Convertibles, also known as cabriolets or drop-tops, are cars with a retractable or removable roof. This roof can be folded down or removed to allow for open-air driving. Convertibles often have two doors but can also have four. They offer the option of both enclosed and open driving experiences. Popular convertible examples include the Mazda MX-5 Miata, Porsche 911 Cabriolet, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet.

Key Differences between Coupes and Convertibles

The primary difference between coupes and convertibles lies in the roof. Coupes have a fixed roof, providing a closed cabin, while convertibles have a roof that can be opened to enjoy open-air driving. Coupes often emphasize style and performance, while convertibles offer the versatility of enjoying the wind in your hair when desired.
