    Does anyone know for sure which is heavier; an equally optioned coupe or hatch? And how much difference in weight there is?

    I did a search but couldn't find what I am looking for.

    IIRC, the coupe is lighter by about 75 lbs.
    I'll double-check when I get home in a day or two...

    Oh really, I was curious myself. I tried to research also, and I think some websites are giving false information. I saw some and it said liftbacks and coupes are either 2455, 2700, or 2900.

    From the 1988 Toyota Factory brochure: (ok the coupe's about 50 lbs lighter but I was close)

    GTS Liftback:
    manual: 2665 lbs

    GTS Coupe:
    manual: 2606 lbs
    automatic: 2685 lbs

    GT Liftback:
    manual: 2524
    automatic: 2575

    GT Coupe:
    manual: 2504
    automatic: 2555

    ST Coupe:
    manual: 2436
    automatic: 2496

    Hope that helps :wink:

    Only a 20 lb difference between a GT hatch and coupe, not worth swapping for.

    Thanks for the info.
