The sedan is pretty much where it also started. Four doors, and a boot, it’s probably what you remember from your childhood. However, nowadays, sedans have fallen by the wayside as motorists favour SUVs, utes and hatchbacks. The poor old sedan doesn’t even get much love from manufacturers, with many instead focusing their efforts in other segments, and even contracting their sedan line-up. However, there’s still a lot to love about a sedan as you’ll see below.

What is a sedan?
Four doors, and a boot. That’s usually the crux of what a sedan constitutes. The boot usually does not offer access to the rear seats, however may offer a pass-through to fit longer items such as ski poles, golf bags and so on. Sedans are often powered by two wheels – either rear or front – yet can be offered in all wheel drive form. Popular sedan models include the Toyota Camry, Hyundai i40, BMW 3 Series, and the Mercedes-Benz C Class. The Ford Falcon and Holden Commodore used to be kings of Australian motoring, but local manufacturing of these ceased in 2016 and 2017 respectively.
Why you should buy a sedan
Despite the modern Australian motorist favouring the SUV, there’s still a lot to love about the sedan. Often, compared to equivalent hatchbacks or SUVs, they offer more legroom for rear passengers. Boot space is also often deeper, and has a larger capacity. However, where they lack compared to SUVs or hatchbacks is the practicality of vertical loading space. Sedans can also offer a more comfortable driving experience, as the cabin is closed off from the noisier boot and are closer to the ground, affecting handling.
Sedan vs SUV: which is better?
Many motorists go for an SUV by default. And that’s through no fault of their own – manufacturers haven’t exactly been offering excitement in the sedan space for a while now. Before jumping into an SUV, however, consider if a sedan may be sufficient. Sedans often offer a larger capacity boot, despite lesser vertical loading space, as well as better rear seat room for passengers. Consider also the aerodynamics of an SUV and that they could deliver worse fuel economy than a sedan equivalent. SUVs with four wheel drive also offer more grip and stability, but sedans can also come with all wheel drive. Really, it depends on your lifestyle as to which is better, but don’t count the sedan out just yet.
