Are you planning a summer road trip out of New Jersey? If so, you’ll need a reliable rental vehicle to get you to your destination. However, with all the options out there, it can be hard to know what type of vehicle is right for your family and your trip. One of the most common rental vehicle debates is whether to choose a sedan or an SUV, so today, our team at Hogan’s Automotive is discussing both options to help you decide.

Sedan vs. SUV

The Qualities of a Sedan

Sedans are a classic choice, and at Hogan’s Auto, we great have mid-size, full-size and compact cars to choose from, so you have options. They are all very fuel-efficient and typically cheaper to rent, so if you plan on driving many miles on paved roads, you can reduce the overall cost of your trip. Sedans are also very easy to drive and park in big cities, and come with many advanced safety features that can put your mind at ease, especially if you’re traveling with young kids. However, sedans are generally not built to tow anything or go off-road, so if you plan on camping or need to bring a trailer on your trip, a sedan is probably not the right choice for you.

The Qualities of an SUV

The main draw of an SUV is that they have a lot more space than a sedan typically does. So, if you’re traveling with a lot of luggage and passengers, or you plan to drive to long periods of time, an SUV will likely be more comfortable. SUVs are also the obvious choice if you plan on towing anything, want to go off-roading, or will be traveling through an area suffering from extreme weather conditions or flooding. However, keep in mind that SUVs do not get as good of gas mileage and are generally more expensive to rent. Also, they can be tougher to drive and park in cities, so be mindful of the kind of trip you’re planning.
