Four reasons why you shouldn't shy away from buying a Ford sedan or hatchback

At Roush Ford, located in Columbus, we see a lot of shoppers come in with hesitancies about getting a sedan.  While we love all the vehicles in the Ford lineup, we're here to encourage those interested in a sedan to stick with this choice, and here are a few reasons why.

Initial Costs

You can get an attractively-priced crossover for under $30K, but the fact of the matter is that sedans are going to be less expensive than crossovers. Take for example the Ford Fiesta and Ford Focus. Both are considered entry-level sedans. The Fiesta has a manufacturer's suggested starting price of just over $14K and the Focus is a hair under $18K. The newest entry-level crossover is the Ford EcoSport and it still has a starting price around $20K.

Not only will you pay less to get a sedan, which is ideal for shoppers on a budget, but you can also get those higher-level amenities for less!

Parking Ease

This factor can be easily overlooked but having a car that is easy to park is a blessing. This goes for when you're in a grocery store parking lot, parallel parking in downtown Hilliard, or doing a three-point turn in someone's driveway. Except in some cases, like when comparing a subcompact crossover to a full-size sedan, a sedan is typically going to be shorter than a crossover/SUV, which makes parking a lot easier.

Ride Handling

Test Drive a Ford Sedan

Handling for trucks and SUVS has gotten better over the years, but even if you choose an engine that has a lot of horsepower you're still going to know you're behind the wheel of a big vehicle. You simply cannot beat the zippy feel that a Ford sedan or hatchback has! If you really want to up the ante as you drive around Grove City, you can choose a Ford Focus ST or RS and get a lot of performance packed inside a tiny vehicle.

More Rental and Car Sharing Flexibility

As we mentioned earlier, a big reason people consider sizing up to a crossover or SUV is because they might need the extra space for a trip or they might need to tow something to their home in Dublin. If these needs might only pop up a few times a year, remember that we're in a time where there are a lot of car sharing and rental options that can help fulfill those occasional demands.
