A Basic Guide to Vehicle Body Styles

Last updated 5 years ago

If you want to pick out a pre-owned luxury car that will give you many years and miles of satisfaction, it’s important to take a close look at the different car body styles that are available to you. To learn more about the different car body styles you can purchase, read the following guide.

Coupes and Convertibles

If you don’t often need to carry cargo and passengers at the same time, a stylish luxury two-door coupe would be an excellent option. Coupes are among the most expressive luxury cars you will find, with avant-garde styling, engaging driving dynamics, and the option to upgrade to a soft- or hard-top for convertible fun.

Hatchbacks and Wagons

If you like the idea of a sporty and attractive luxury coupe but you need more room for cargo, you should consider what a two- or four-door luxury hatchback or wagon has to offer you. These cars give you the flexibility between hauling a car full of people and a car full of cargo with the rear seats folded.

Compact Sedans

If you want the option of hauling five passengers, or you simply prefer a more traditional luxury sedan design, a compact sedan is worth considering. Many car experts will suggest a BMW 3-series, as these are some of the most well-built and well-balanced compact luxury sedans in the world.

Midsize Sedans

If you need more room than a midsize sedan offers, a luxurious midsize sedan is a great alternative. These cars are more confident on the road than SUVs, while also being easier to park and more fuel-efficient.

Crossovers and SUVs

The biggest difference between a luxury SUV and a luxury crossover is the platform; an SUV is built on a truck chassis, while a crossover is built on a car chassis. If you favor cargo and passenger space over driving experience, an SUV will be better for you. But if you prioritize fuel efficiency, a sporty driving dynamic, and price, go for a crossover instead.
