Sedan or SUV?

I Need A New Vehicle. Should I Choose A Sedan Or SUV?

That is the question that many drivers struggle with: should they buy a sedan or an SUV? And the answer isn't simple. Both body styles offer impressive features, great plusses, and some unfortunate minuses. The bottom line will come down to what your preferences are and which model best matches those wants and needs.

To help alleviate some of your sedan or SUV struggles, we've come up with a few ways the sedan and SUV models differ.

  • Size For Both Cargo And Passengers

    Most likely, if you're searching for added space, you'll want to take a closer look at the SUVs. While sedans do come in a larger size, like the Chrysler 300, they can't keep up with the massive interior of such SUVs like the seven-seater Dodge Journey or Dodge Durango. On the opposite end of the spectrum, if you want a car that is capable of easily fitting into parking spots, like in downtown Hazelwood NC or Waynesville, you'll most likely want a sedan.

  • Fuel Economy To Save You Money At The Pump

    Most of the time, smaller equals better gas mileage and that can be true for most sedans. Less money spent on gas, means more money for you to spend dining in Sylva or out on the town in Cullowhee.

  • Off-Roading/All-Weather Capable

    SUVs, like the Jeep brand SUVs, are known for their off-roading adventures. In fact, most SUVs have all-wheel drive or four-wheel drive systems available, if not included, and are generally better to handle in inclement weather situations. That being said, some sedans are coming out with all-wheel drive options as well, such as the advanced AWD system in the Dodge Charger.

  • Powertrain Options

    Sedans and SUVs offer completely different powertrain options. Sedans are built more for speed and high-performance, like the Dodge sedans or Chrysler cars, while SUVs are designed to keep up, but also have a stronger base, which is better for towing and hauling purposes.
