The aerodynamic shape of a sedan makes it inherently more fuel efficient than utility vehicles. Engine choices run from small, economical 4-cylinder turbo engines to fire-breathing twin-turbo V8s. Transmission options run from five- and six-speed manual to continuously
variable transmission (CVT) up to 10-speed automatic. The only limiting factor may be your budget.
Driving a sedan
The different types of sedan models include front-wheel drive, four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. The lighter weight of sedans allows them to accelerate quickly and brake even faster. Handling response is quick, the ride is smooth and the car is quiet. As an added bonus, fuel consumption in sedans is often quite low.
