Do you own a hatchback, Crossover, Sedan or may be SUV? Let’s start with the basic car most people love to have; a conventional sedan.
Also known as Saloon in few countries, this car is a passenger vehicle featuring seats with two rows.
The rear compartment seating is sufficient for adult passengers, and the cargo area is in the end but sectioned off from the seating space. The cargo space is generally known as the boot or the trunk of the car. Out of all other car kinds, this offers the least storage capability, which is expected as a sedan prioritizes passenger’s seating over cargo space.
A Sedan is equipped in four-door. Sedans can be seen in plenty across all Middle East countries; a few popular ones are Dodge Charger, Toyota Corolla, Audi A4, and Volkswagen Passat.
Short for Vehicle or Suburban Utility Vehicle or Sports Utility Vehicle, an SUV comes with four-wheel drive equipped. The vehicle can be utilized on off-road on rough paths but is majorly driven in the highways and city. Built on a light-truck chassis, have a towing capability of a pickup truck, and seating potent same to a large sedan, the SUV does not provide a separate cargo area. Most of the SUVs in the market are 4-doors equipped.
SUVs also features massive body, high ground clearance, and weigh majorly more than other car type, that’s why their fuel economy is very poor. Popular SUVs here are Nissan Kicks, Toyota Land Cruiser, Audi Q7, and Volkswagen Touareq and Jeep Grand Cherokee.
The hatchback is a car body configuration that has a rear door. The back door replaces the trunk/boot found in swings and sedans upwards when opened to access the cargo space. Usually, in these kinds of cars the second-row seats can be folded down to increase cargo storage space.
Hatchbacks are also defined as three-door or five-door cars since the up-swinging rear door is also considered in the list. Popular cars in this category are the Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback, Toyota Yaris and the Volkswagen Golf. Not to be perplexed with station wagons that feature the same designs but on the other hand prioritize passenger seating capacity and cargo space.
Also denoted as CUV (Crossover Utility Vehicle), it is built on a car platform, which merges features of an SUV and Hatchback, hence the name crossover. It mostly has a high center of gravity, high ground clearance, suspension, superior fuel economy like sedans, and independent rear wheel.
Crossovers are presented in Rear-Wheel Drives, All-Wheel Drives, and Rear-Wheel drives, depending on the manufacturer, as they are not designed for any off-road capability like the SUV. Popular vehicles in this category are the Kia Sportage, Ford Edge, BMW X1, and Audi Q3.
