Sedans are the most common style of vehicle people think of when discussing cars. Typical sedans feature four doors and seating for five passengers. The front and rear of sedans are typically similar in size and shape. Of the three options, sedans generally offer customers with better fuel economy due to their more aerodynamic and lightweight design. If you are looking for more cargo space, a hatchback may be a better option to consider. 


Hatchbacks feature a relatively similar design to sedans. The primary difference is that hatchbacks have the fifth door, hatch, rather than the standard trunk. This fifth door offers customers with much more cargo space in the trunk are than sedans are able to offer. Hatchbacks typically have similar performance and fuel economy to comparable sedans. However, they are often viewed by customers as less visually appealing than sedans. If you are looking for a combination of cargo space and performance, then the crossover is the option you should consider.  


Crossovers offer customers with the most versatile option of the three. While crossovers do not lead the pack in any of the major categories customers focus on when buying a car, they do well in each. This makes the crossover more sought after for families with smaller children, as they provide cargo and passenger space.
