If you’re shopping for a new vehicle in Evansville, Indiana, you’re probably choosing between a sedan and an SUV. Which option is right for you and your family? Here at Evansville Hyundai, we want you to find the vehicle that’s best for your needs, so we’ve put together a guide to help you decide between the two vehicle types.

Fuel Efficiency

In general, a sedan will save money on your daily commute with higher average fuel efficiency than you can get on a larger SUV. For example, the 2021 Hyundai Elantra and 2021 Hyundai Sonata sedans are quite a bit more efficient than their SUV counterparts, the 2021 Hyundai Tucson and 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe. Advantage: Sedan.


If you’re hauling around a growing family or a carpool crew from sports practice, or if you regularly need to transport a lot of cargo, an SUV is the better choice. You can typically fit more stuff in the cargo bay of an SUV than you can in the trunk of a sedan — and have the stronger engine to carry that extra weight. You can’t buy an eight-passenger sedan, but you can buy the three-row Hyundai Palisade. Advantage: SUV.


If you’re still not sure whether a sedan or an SUV best fits your needs, that’s OK! Stop in at Evansville Hyundai, and we’ll help you find the right fit for you.

In many automakers’ lineups, SUVs tend to be more expensive than sedans. This isn’t the case with Hyundai.

We also offer a great small SUV under $20,000 for budget-conscious buyers: the 2021 Venue. Advantage: Tied.
