Sedans has always been popular, but utility vehicles have rapidly grown in popularity. But does this mean sedans should be crossed off your potential new car list? We’ll compare sedans and utility vehicles
Utility vehicles are more built for comfort, without saying that sedans aren’t. This is due to the fact that SUVs have a better suspension built for it. In addition, SUVs are designed to carry more weight and absorb impact on rougher terrain. However if you spend more time on the highway, then sedans has it beat because of its effectiveness of being comfortable at high speeds.
As car technology progresses and new innovation are being introduced, fuel efficiency for all vehicle types improves. However, utility vehicles are heavier, resulting in lower miles per gallon compared to sedans. For comparison, the 2018 Honda Civic with the 2.0-liter four engine gets you around 30/39 MPG (City/Highway), while the 2018 Honda CR-V with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine achieves 27/33 MPG (City/Highway)
Many people prefer many things depending on preferences. If you like more sporty cars, you’ll likely choose sedans. However, as technology progresses and new different looks are introduced SUVs starts to look their part. But again this is subjective to many different preferences.
