Roomy, Stylish and Safe: The Best Sedans in the Market Today

A sedan is the most popular car in the market today. Its sensibility and style is its best asset. For people who want their cars to reflect elegance and the practicality of seating four people, a sedan is the automobile of choice. Sedans are usually four-door types but there are also two-door sedans but are quite rare. Some of the world’s best sedans have their own signature features that make them the top-of-the-line sedans.

• Cadillac CTS
First produced in 2002, General Motors introduced this car to the public to replace the Cadillac Catera. Reviving the Cadillac image into an upbeat and hipper automobile brand, it gave GM the chance to compete with Europe’s more luxurious Mercedes and Lexus cars.

Depending on the buyer’s budget, he can get a 2.8 liter or 3.6 liter V-6 engine that has large torque power. Tested in the twisting roads of Europe, the CTS can be disappointing as the grips are too short and steering is light. This is rightly being manufactured in the US with its endless stretch of straight highways. It’s roomy, comes with an anti-lock brake system but fuel economy (typically GM) is a bust.

• BMW 3-Series
This comes in several series and performance-wise, this sedan does not disappoint. Torque is very powerful and the suspension creates for a smooth transitioning in all types of roads. Driving is a pleasant experience with this car and being a BMW, it is simply stylish. It also uses the highest-grade material, none of that plastic dashboard popular in American cars.

For the driver’s traveling needs, the 3-series has one of the biggest trunk space. Anti-lock brakes, airbags all around and a solid frame that earned the car a perfect rating from the EuroNCAP crash tests. However, you cannot expect this to be a cheap car. It is more expensive than its rival sedans.

• Audi A-4
The Audi sedans have been considered practical buys with their solid-looking structure and elegant look. The A-4 handling doesn’t seem to agree much with this automobile. The steering is pretty decent but directional changes can be abrupt causing a bumpy ride sometimes. For a sedan, it is certainly spacious and has enough legroom in the front.

The German’s automotive sensibility shines through in the A-4 with durable engine as well as interiors. It has first-class leather inside with a CD player and air-conditioning. It also features an anti-brake system, lots of airbags and an ISO FIX child seat clamps. Just for sheer looks, the Audi A-4 can beat any sedan model in the market.

• Jaguar X-type
Who would have thought that Jaguar will produce a model sedan? They are not only about tiny roadsters anymore with the Jaguar X-type. This series have four choices of engines: a 2.2 liter, 2.5 liter, 3 liter V6 and a diesel. It still carries its signature leather and wood combination when it comes to the interiors and the same powerful performance in terms of torque.

It’s also very roomy and has climate and cruise control feature as well as a CD player, anti-lock brakes and airbags. Good traction is also a bonus feature in the X-type and although it can be a little pricey, the diesel engine model can be a good investment in the long run if not only for the fact that the buyer will own a Jaguar.
