SUVs and trucks may dominate the spotlight, but there’s a lot to love about sedans. Here at Casey Auto, we have some favorites of our own, including the 2016 Hyundai Elantra and 2016 Hyundai Sonata.
Why should you get a sedan?
With less material to move, sedans are easier to maneuver. What may have been tight parking spots in a truck or SUV become perfectly sized for your sedan.
Less material also means lower costs on both the initial price and maintenance. Some insurers may also charge less for car insurance when you drive a sedan.
Sedans also excel in fuel economy — with older models of compact and midsize cars often getting more miles per gallon than today’s larger vehicles.
2016 Hyundai Elantra
The compact 2016 Hyundai Elantra has two available engines, which each get slightly different mileage ratings on the Elantra’s various trim levels.
The more powerful 2.0-liter inline-four engine, available on the Sport trim, gets 24 mpg in the city or 33-35 mpg on the highway.* The regular 1.8-liter inline-4 gets 27-28 mpg in the city and 37-38 mpg on the highway.*
2016 Hyundai Sonata
The 2016 Hyundai Sonata has four engine choices, with an additional split between the Sonata’s traditional hybrid and plug-in hybrid models.
The Sonata’s base 2.4-liter inline-four engine provides 25 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.* The more powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four gas engine provides 23 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.* The Sonata’s most environmentally-friendly gas engine — the 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-four — gets 28 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on highways.*
The Sonata’s traditional hybrid engine provides between 39 and 40 mpg in the city and 43 or 44 mpg on the highway.* The plug-in model gets an estimated 24-mile electric-only range, after which its traditional hybrid engine grants it 40 mpg in combined city/highway driving.*
