What's in a Body Style?  The Dilemma of Whether to Buy a Sedan or an SUV

We have many customers from the Grand Rapids, MI area who come to our dealership, thinking they need an SUV, and are shocked to find that their needs can be met with a sedan. 

We also have many people who come in looking for a sedan, only to find that only an SUV will do the trick. 

Ed Koehn Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, located at 11282 W Carson City Rd in Greenville, MI, has compiled some of the advantages of going with either body style.

The Benefits of a Sedan

One of the great things about a sedan is that, for the most part, they tend to be more fuel efficient than an SUV. 

This is especially important if you are a Wyoming, MI customer and have a long commute into work.  Owning or leasing a sedan can be a great way to save on fuel costs.

Another slightly less considered reason to get a sedan would be seating position.  In a sedan, the fact that a taller customer can sit lower might make the ride a lot more comfortable and relaxing for him. 

SUVs, by and large, tend to sit a little higher and have less headroom for customers.  If you are a little taller, or like riding a little lower, the seating position of a sedan could be much more advantageous for you

Many sedans also tend to be easier to maneuver because of their smaller size.  Backing into a parking spot at your local grocery store in Kentwood, MI might not be as intimidating with a smaller vehicle.

The Benefits of a SUV

One of the main reasons that people love SUVs are the amount of cargo room.  The cubic feet of cargo space in a SUV is much generally much greater than it would be when compared to the cubic feet of space in a large sedan's trunk. 

There is also the benefit of being able to carry many more passengers.  A car is likely to be able to seat five while a sports utility vehicle can often sit up to seven or eight people.

There is also a larger prevalence of all-wheel drive in SUV as compared to sedans.  For drivers who value maximum traction, this is important.
