Vehicle Body Styles Explained: Finding Your Dream Car

vehicle body styles

There are a range of different vehicle body styles on the market. You can choose between sedans, coupes, SUVs, and crossovers. However, not everyone knows the difference between these various terms. In order to help you find the car that’s perfect for you, we’ve put together a post explaining some of the differences between these models.

According to Autotrader, an SUV is a sport utility vehicle, a model built on a truck chassis. This body style comes with a body-on-frame design, which means the body and frame are separate. This allows for a more rigid ride, which is ideal for harsh terrain and off roading. A crossover, on the other hand, comes with a unibody design. This is traditionally built on a car chassis, which makes it softer and smoother. The SUV is better for towing heavy loads and off-road adventures, while the crossover is ideal for everyday comfort.

What about a sedan and coupe? A sedan is the classic four-door design you see on most American cars. Technically, a sedan has more than 33 cu ft of rear interior volume, which makes it perfect for up to 4 or 5 people. Many families prefer the sedan. A coupe normally comes with two doors, and it has less than 33 cu ft of interior volume. This usually increases performance and adds sporty appeal, though you don’t have as much room as a sedan.

These are just some of the many important distinctions to keep in mind when buying a car. Now that you know the difference between coupes, sedans, SUVs, and crossovers, you’ll be better equipped to find your dream car.
