High-Riding Crossover Sedan - Future of Sedan Cars
High-Riding Crossover Sedan - Future of Sedan Cars?
Not just India but the whole world in terms of new car sales is going crazy for SUVs. Sedans have fallen behind in terms of sales when compared to SUVs and the reason is very clear in the sense that car buyers like the high driving position along with the ground clearance that an SUV offers. SUVs and crossover are predicted to take over other forms of cars in terms of buyer demand. Hence it is no surprise that new car launches are mostly SUVs these days. The last big sedan launches have been the Skoda Octavia and the new Honda City at the affordable end while new SUVs continue to be launched month on month.
So, what is the future of the sedan? Well in the future you can see SUVs adapting and changing themselves with high-riding crossover sedans being the next possible trend. In order to bring back demand for sedans, a high-riding 3 box design sedan with the ground clearance of an SUV might do the trick. India already has the S60 Cross Country which is the S60 sedan with the ground clearance of an SUV. That was a few years back and now other carmakers can catch on to this trend. Then there is also the Polestar 2 which has the big wheels and the ground clearance of an SUV but the stance/design of a sedan.
That has many advantages mainly with the ground clearance and the stance of the car while still keeping the sedan shape. It means sedans can be used also on bad roads with ease along with being better to drive than SUVs due to the sedan shape being better for aerodynamics. We can see more SUV shaped sedans in the future for sure and those will bring sedan sales back on track.
