Maybe you’ve been car shopping lately and have found a couple of models that pique your interest, like the Honda Pilot SUV and Honda Civic Sedan. Now you’re wondering whether you should buy a sedan or SUV for your Turnersville commute. There are lots of things to consider, like why are SUVs so popular? Are sedans more economical? Why is an SUV safer than a sedan? We want you to make an informed choice, so we’ve put together the detailed sedan vs. SUV comparison below.



Sedan vs. SUV – Passenger and Cargo Space

Why are SUVs so popular with growing Marlton families? Mainly that has to do with the extra room for passengers and cargo in SUVs. Some SUVs, like the Honda Pilot, even have a 3rd row and can accommodate up to 8 passengers. And the larger your family becomes, the more groceries, sports gear, or band equipment you’ll find yourself hauling around. SUVs have far more cargo space than sedans.

Sedan vs. SUV – Gas Mileage

Rising gas prices have lots of Vineland drivers making fuel efficiency a priority. Sedans typically get better gas mileage than SUVs for a couple of reasons. For one thing, sedans have a lower profile, and therefore are more aerodynamic. Secondly, they are smaller and lighter, meaning the engine doesn’t have to work as hard.

Why Is an SUV Safer Than a Sedan?

SUVs are perceived by most drivers to be the safer vehicle. An argument can actually be made for the safety advantages of either type of vehicle. But the reasons why an SUV is safer than a sedan have to do with visibility. The taller height of the SUV accords the driver a greater field of vision, allowing the driver to see hazards that may be farther down the road. In addition, the larger size of an SUV makes this type of vehicle more visible to other drivers.
