Your Guide to Sedan Cars
Choosing a new car is a challenge, even if you have narrowed your choice to the sedan body style. Here is some advice on buying one of the most traditional forms of car.
What is a sedan
This passenger car is known as a saloon in some markets, such as the United Kingdom, while ‘notchback’ is a more colloquial term.
Some modern versions blur the lines between sedan and coupe by combining four doors and a swooping roofline – to create a more dynamic design that not only has more visual appeal but also improved aerodynamics.
Engines are almost exclusively positioned at the front of the car, though the wheels they power – whether the front wheels, rear wheels or all four wheels – vary greatly between models.
Volvo Car Australia currently offers the medium-size Volvo X60.
It is an elegantly designed luxury sedan comprising a persuasive line-up of models offering a choice of turbocharged diesel or petrol engines, and the availability of all-wheel drive with the six-cylinder T6 model.
Highlights for Volvo’s mid-size luxury sedan include:
• City Safety autonomous braking system
• Sensus multimedia system
• Rain sensor
• Electronic climate control
• Split-fold 60/40 rear seat
• Rear-view camera + rear sensors (Kinetic model upwards)
• Satellite navigation (Luxury + R-Design models)
• Harman Kardon audio (R-Design model)
