Civic coupe?
 
Does anyone have any info on the 6th gen 1995-2000 civic si coupe ( 1999 )?

Also im trying to work out why the drag is higher on the 5th gen coupe opposed to the 5th gen hatch? Surely the front is the same, and the rear end is better on the coupe??

Any input/comments?

Do you have any documentation of the drag differences?

I would think the coupe would be better, but maybe the rear window angle is too steep for airflow to stay attached, and instead it just creates turbulence. In that case, the sharp cutoff of the hatch would be better.

I know what you're talking about. I'm not sure where Alohaspririt got those numbers. Basjoos has a 5th gen hatchback and he's used the CoEf of .34, one of his website links states this. But now I see he's saying he went from .31-.17 CoEf.

I tried searching for some aerodynamics info on the Civic and come up with nothing.

Excluding Wikipedia's info.

I'd have to think you're right there. Absent reliable figures to the contrary, it seems more likely the coupe would be better.
