That's a choice you should make...Both carry the same number of people, just one is more convenient for your passengers (as is the 4 door). Sporty or versatile? Drive by yourself mostly or do you take a lot of friends? Have things to carry all the time or is the car going to be a simple conveyance? Make the decision on what you need or make the decision on what you want...see how simple it's not...LoL!!!

You NEVER know...designing cars is not an exact science! The 5-door could turn out to be the most popular Forte once people see it...LoL! Then your idea of being different will disappear...at least you're thinking it through.

Either way, the 2011 looks to be much improved over the 2010, so you are buying the right model year lol.
"MUCH" improved? The only significant difference I see is the availability of a Nav package, unless I'm missing something?

Another significant improvement is the 6 speed autotranny.

While the back of the Koup isn't that small, I would say that if you are going to have people in the back seat even once a month it may be worth getting the 5 door.

As others said its really up to you and your needs..
I myself was going to buy a sedan but after seeing the Koup has plenty of room in the back for atleast 2 people easy.
And my very rare need for the space I bought the koup instead.

Just write out a vs list between the 5 door and the Koup..
see which model comes closer to all your needs/wants for your car
PS. Remember that your most likely going to have this car awhile so keep that in mind too:)

As a huge fan of wagons/hatchbacks I have to say the 5 door. Then just get the Koup bumper and install. It will be like having the best of both worlds.

You realize the Koup has even more backseat room than the Accord Coupe?

I have kids who need to sit in back all the time, and I STILL got a Koup.
