SUV or sedan: the keys to the complex and what to expect in each

It often happens that between some taste and the real work there is something thinner than you think. Fashion is one of the aspects that can generate the necessary attention that this “cool product with more vibes” tips the scales at the moment of decision. And in the automobile world itself, examples abound, as far as diversification and the number of reasons are considered in the comparisons, so that the conclusion is as close as possible to the true need.

It is almost a truism to emphasize primarily the aesthetics or appearance of a vehicle as the factor that has the greatest hindrance when it comes to purchasing a solution. The decision between a leaning SUV or a sedan is mainly based on points of analysis to achieve the best decision.

Historically – almost parallel to the rural ones – mid-sized models were chosen by the average family of four members, while compacts were usually accessed by couples or with one child. More here in time has changed the industry through the appearance of that body more associated with adventure and life in the open air, drawn from a distant philosophy: SUVs. Due to its compact size, with the Forerunner Ford EcoSport based on the Fiesta platform, this type of vehicle has experienced a unique proliferation. The development of the world was growing to an amazing level and there is only one way to achieve it: by deducting sales from other segments.

Corolla Cross is the best selling SUV in 2012

So the station wagons suffered the first attack, then the sedans, although to a lesser extent, the argument is that it is still a resistant group: in fact, the best selling car in Argentina in the last two years. years ago, it is the Cronos, a compact that Fiat produces in Cordoba, with which it looks at the most famous segment of SUVs.

The difference in favor of Sport Utility is clear and the ACARA (SIOMAA) numbers testify to this: among the 50 most sold vehicles in January there are 17 crossovers/SUVs and 7 sedans. Fewer and fewer C saloons are on offer: strong players like Renault and Ford no longer have them.

So the mission, beyond the capabilities of the units that is today a topic in the local market, is interesting and practical to decide the keys of one body and another on the purchase. The comparisons can be a bit subtle when it comes to finding contrasting features between the models, because more than anyone will be able to say “eh, but they compare me to a mid-size sedan with a compact SUV”, and that’s exactly what it’s about. choosing between sizes between the two categories is relatively complicated. The general purpose of this report is to list the main benefits and gray areas on the one hand and, on the other, to help clarify things.

The Chevrolet Cruze is one of the few remaining sedans in the midsize compact segment

According to the price, it is not a simple matter. In the category of three-volume vehicles tend to be slightly below the parameters of measurements of similar sizes and segments, and now it has been found that the midsize sedan is almost the same as the B-segment SUV, which is in a smaller category. Engine and engine configuration play a role in determining the price, which allows to analyze power, comfort and safety variables.

Let Cronus challenge the decline of the calm

Crossing these questions is somewhat complex for comparison, and it is easier to review examples of the same character. And in that exercise we found these models (with February values) proposed prices for the Onix Plus from $5,056,000 to $5,760,000, the Tracker between $5,760,000 (similar to the Cruze) and $8,330,000, while the Equinox starts at $12,113,000. In Toyota’s case, the Corolla is between $5,582,000 and $8,900,000, while the Cross (“la” for many) starts at $7,720,000 and goes up to $10,061,000.

Renault Captur, part of the diamond brand offering

The RENAULT Logan goes from $4,230,000 to $4,725,000, the Duster does it from $5,510,000 to $5,791,000, while the Captur starts at $5,783,000. The VW family includes the Power between $5,242,000 and $9,522,000, the Vento at $12,108,000, the Snow from $5,860,000 to $9,088.00, the T-Cross between $5,860,000 and $9,702,000, and the Taos from $9,835,000 to $12,267,000.

Among the ranks of sedans, the Fiat Cronos, Toyota Corolla, Etios and Yaris (both of which share a family with the exhaust), Chevrolet Cruze and Onix (which lives with a twin body) coexist; Renault Logan; Volkswagen Virtus and Vento; Nissan Versa and Sentra; and Cerato as an exponent of an importer like EX. Among the premiums are: Audi A3 Sedan, A4 and A6; BMW 3, 5 and 7 Series; Mercedes-Benz Class A, C, E, S; and DS9.

Small, medium and large SUVs/SUVs included: Chevrolet Tracker, Equinox and Trailblazer; Fiat Pulsus, Toyota Corolla Cross, RAV4, SW4 and Terra Yaria; Volkswagen Snow, T-Cross and Taos (waiting for the updated Tiguan Allspace); Jeep Renegade, Compass and Commander; Ford EcoSport, Territory, Kuga Hybrid and Bronco; Renault Or Captur and Koleos. Honda HR-V, CR-V and Pilot; Peugeot 3008 and 5008; Citroën C4 Cactus and C5 Aircross; Nissan Kicks and X-Trail; Kia Seltos and Sorento; and the Hyundai Kona, Creta and Santa Fe. Among the prizes are the Audi Q2, Q3, Q5, Q7 and Q8 (in addition to the electric e-tron); Mercedes-Benz GLA, GLB, GLC, GLE; BMW X1, 3, 5 and 7; and the DS 7 Crossback.

The sedan is likely to be a type that is slowly heading towards extinction. it is neither established nor expired, and is still supported by solid evidence. What happened is that the SUV category continues to add members. Users and defenders on one side and on the other side of the market, where tradition, necessity or affection coexist. In this field, this compulsion was established between the two classes, which virtues and disadvantages are bought more by the mind than by the reason, or vice versa. The usual advice is to be clear about the use that is given, regardless of the number of family members and the route. Get it, look for the best option. For different tastes, needs and pockets, there.
