Crossover vs. Sedan

As crossovers become increasingly popular in the states, many drivers are considering switching out their old vehicle for a smart and capable SUV. At the same time, however, sedans are able to meet the daily driving demands of most drivers, leaving buyers in a bit of a conundrum when it comes to deciding on which vehicle to purchase. Here’s a brief comparison guide to help you decide which vehicle is right for you: a crossover or a sedan.

Benefits of a Crossover

The biggest benefits of buying a crossover are more space and – potentially – more power and capability. While sedans really only offer trunk space for cargo, the interiors of crossovers offer more rear storage as well as a lot more cargo space when you fold down the rear seats. In addition, seating is generally more spacious than when in a sedan.
In terms of capability, crossovers generally offer all-wheel drive systems that will provide increased traction and control in poor weather conditions and while driving on off-road terrains.

Benefits of a Sedan

Although crossovers are currently reigning in popularity, sedans have seen the same or similar technological innovations as their larger counterparts, and these innovations come in tried and true vehicle platforms. In terms of performance, sedans generally offer superior fuel efficiency than crossovers, allowing you to save money while on the go. Sedans are also nimbler on the road and generally offer better visibility through the windows than crossovers, providing a smooth and comfortable driving experience.

Whether you prefer a sedan or crossover, we have plenty of both here at Mama's Used Cars. Alternately, if you can’t choose from home, stop by and test-drive one!
