Which sedan is right for you?

Compact sedan vs midsize sedan

If you’ve been considering a new car, you’ll have a number of options to choose from. We don’t just mean across the board from automaker to automaker; we mean by size as well. The two most common segments of sedans are compact and midsize. Take a look below at some of the differences between compact sedans and midsize sedans to see which is a better choice for you!

By opting for a compact sedan, you’re getting an easily maneuverable vehicle that is smaller in size. What it lacks in size, though, it makes up for in other regards. The tight turning radius is definitely a plus, and most compact SUVs will get better fuel efficiency than their midsize counterparts. Compact SUVs also cost less right out the gate as well, so if you’re on a budget, this may be the route to go. The Honda Civic is a good example of a quality compact SUV.

Why choose a midsize sedan?

While midsize sedans will cost a little more, some drivers may find that it’s worth it to go with that option. Both compact sedans and midsize sedans typically have seating for five, but midsize sedans will have more passenger space and cargo volume in the trunk. They’ll also usually have more power under the hood than compact sedans. Additionally, some automakers reserve certain features for their midsize sedans that aren’t found in their compact sedans. The Honda Accord is an example of a midsize sedan.
