What is a Sedan?

First, let’s take a look at what it means to be a sedan. Sedans are the traditional car model. 4 doors, and a roof that slopes down to the trunk. The trunk is generally separate from the rest of the interior, but on some models, part of the rear seat is able to fold down allowing for access to the trunk.

What is a Hatchback?

Second, let’s take a look at what a hatchback is. A hatchback is a small passenger car that looks very similar to a sedan. Instead of a trunk, a hatchback has, well, a hatch. This hatch opens upwards so you have access to the entire back end of the interior. Often times you can even fold down the rear seats in a hatchback to gain more storage space.




Finally, sedans and hatchbacks are actually very similar. Both generally have seating capability for up to five people, and both provide storage space with a trunk. Hatchbacks are able to offer more initial storage than most sedans, however. Especially when the rear seats are folded down. Even though sedans are generally more expensive than hatchbacks, they tend to have stronger engine power. On average hatchbacks are able to provide better gas mileage which will make your wallet happy. Because sedans tend to be longer than hatchbacks, they are able to offer more legroom to passengers inside.
