Comparing the Interior of a Pre-Owned Compact Car & a Sedan

While most compact cars and sedans offer seating for up to five passengers, it’s no surprise that you’ll find a bit more room, especially in the back seat, for occupants in a sedan. Most sedans have back seats that fold down to allow larger cargo items, and many compact cars are designed with a hatchback style that also allows for a variety of cargo options. When it comes to features, you are more likely to find conveniences like power seats, navigation, and other premium amenities in a sedan. However, quality used compact cars can also come with such features, so be sure to ask us about what’s important inside your next pre-owned vehicle.

Comparing the Performance of a Pre-Owned Compact Car & a Sedan

Generally speaking, you’ll find some significant performance differences between compact cars and sedans. Sedans are bigger, so it’s no surprise that they come with more powerful, and usually larger, engines. This does sacrifice fuel economy to a degree, but not as much as you might think. Since compact cars are designed with economy and efficiency as a priority, there’s a good chance that you’ll experience different handling and ride quality than what’s often available in the larger sedans. Most modern sedans are now equipped with fully independent suspension, whereas compacts are commonly equipped with a more economical compound crank rear suspension. Both types of cars are fun to drive, and it really comes down to what feels best for your needs and budget.
