Sedans vs. SUVs

Current 2019 Kia Model Lineup

When you’re shopping for a new vehicle, you’re likely wondering what model is best for you! Often, drivers in Naperville and St. Charles end up comparing a sedan vs. SUV. To help you decide, our team at Gerald Kia of North Aurora has set out to show you the difference between coupe and sedan, and also compare sedan vs. SUV models! Read on to help you decide which model in our online inventory is best suited to your drives in Oswego.

Advantages of SUVs

SUV models are popular due to their advanced capability and added capacity. Many SUVs can fit up to seven passengers–just look at the Kia Telluride! Those who need a serious bump in cargo capacity and towing power will turn to SUVs, as they boast the following advantages:

  • Space: SUVs offer much more cargo space than sedans do. Whether you’re heading out on a family road-trip or loading up on groceries, SUVs offer flexible cargo solutions.
  • Utility: Most SUVs are built to tow and haul, and might be equipped to tackle harsh weather conditions with standard or available all-wheel drive. You can find all-wheel drive on some sedans, but SUVs are typically much more rugged.
  • Ground Clearance: SUVs sit higher than sedans. This extra height improves outward visibility and performance off beaten paths.

Advantages of Sedans

Are you wondering, “what is a sedan?” Car experts agree that a sedan typically has four doors for passenger entry, and a separate rear compartment for cargo. The defining between coupe and sedan is the amount of doors, as coupes typically only have two doors.

Sedans have an interior that’s typically on-par with SUVs in terms of passenger space and safety features. So if you want to enjoy superior efficiency and nimble performance, a sedan is perfect for you! Sedan advantages include:

  • Fuel Economy: Usually, the options for an economy sedan are a standard 4-cylinder engine and sometimes an optional V6. A lot of SUVs come standard with V6 and even V8 engines, meaning they don’t offer the same fuel efficiency.
  • Responsive Handling: Sedans have a much lower center of gravity, giving you better maneuverability during cornering and on narrow streets. They also weigh far less, giving you more agile performance.
  • Affordable Price-Tag: Certainly, you can find SUVs that very affordable–especially Kia models! However, as a general rule, sedans are notably less expensive than SUVs.
