Sedans Car in Japan


Sedan Car

A sedan or a saloon is a passenger car having a rear boot that projects out of the body, configured with A, B & C- Pillars and principal volumes articulated in separate compartments for engine, passenger and cargo.

The primary purpose of the sedan is to transport people and their baggage on ordinary roads. The shape and position of the automobile greenhouse on both two- and four-door sedans may be identical, with only the centre B-pillar positioned further back to accommodate the longer doors on the two-door versions. 

For example, the 1962 Rambler Classic sedans feature identical windshield,

A-pillar, roof, C-pillar, and rear window. The two-door sedans have longer doors and include roll-down rear side window and even a quarter window that is shaped to follow the reverse slant of the C-pillar, just like on the rear doors of the four-door sedans.

Physical Features:

The passenger compartment features two rows of seats and adequate passenger space in the rear compartment for adult passengers. The cargo compartment is typically in the rear, with the exception of some rear-engined models, such as the Renault Dauphine, Tatra T613, Volkswagen Type 3 and Chevrolet Corvair. It is one of the most common car body styles. A battery electric liftback such as the Tesla Model S has no engine compartment, but a front cargo compartment and a rear compartment for cargo. Sedan versions of the automobile body style have a central pillar (B-pillar) that supports the roof and come in two- and four-door versions. Sedans usually have a two-box or three-box body.


Types of Sedan Cars-:

Club Sedan Car

Club Sedan Cars:

Club sedan are designed to built on a normal chassis, but with sedans were most often available in high- level U.S. models from the mid-1920 to the mid -1950's.


Notchback Sedan Cars:

This is a three-box sedan, where the passenger area is clearly different from the trunk volume of the vehicle. The roof is on one plane, generally parallel to the ground, the rear window at a sharp angle to the roof, the trunk lid is also parallel  to the ground.

Fastback Sedan Car

Fastback Sedan Cars:

The two box sedan is known as fastback sedan. It is with continuous slope from the roof to the base of the trunk lid but excludes the hatchback feature. Some sedans are almost one-box cars that have their windshields sharply raked from the bonnet or hood. Also, their back window slopes to the car’s rear, resulting to a short deck at the back that is included in the trunk lid.



Hardtop Sedan Cars:

A typical hardtop does not have a B-pillar or a centre for roof support at the back of the front doors, this design has been considered “pillarless” and gives better visibility. But they need a stronger underbody to have a firm structure. From the 1960's to the 70's, many automobile manufacturers in the U.S. marketed hardtop sedans as sport sedans. Because of this strategy, the design of hardtop sedans became very popular among buyers. In the 1980's, manufacturers started to make hardtop sedans stronger and lighter.

Hatchback Sedan Car

Hatchback Sedan Cars:

Hatchback or liftback sedans usually have the fastback profile, but instead of a truck lid, the entire  back of the vehicle is lifted up by a hatch or liftgate. Other terms for a car that has a rear liftgate and four doors around the passenger compartment are a five-door sedan, four-door hatchback sedan, five-door hatchback, and four-door hatchback. Examples are the Audi A5 Sportback and the Chevrolet Malibu Max.



Chauffeured Sedans Cars:

These sedans are also known as limousine sedans, it has two two separate compartments one for the passengers and one for the driver. The length of the passenger compartment has a typical length that is able to hold two bench seats facing each other. Example of such sedans are Rolls-Royce, Mercedes-Benz, Cadillac, and the Lincoln Town Car.

Why sedans are popular?

  • They are the most recognisable shape for a car, and has set a standard bar for the stability and safety.

  • Their relatively low ride height keeps the weight closer to the ground and this low centre of gravity means that cornering, shifting and changing direction don't upset a sedan's balance as badly as they do an SUV's.

  • When it comes to driving pleasure, sedans simply offer more of it - more connection with the road - than off-roaders, or even most small cars.

  • Sedans are with the advent of advanced stability-control systems such as active rollover prevention, the gap is closing, however these systems are designed to counteract an inherent danger in how high-riding vehicles behave under duress.

  • Sedans also are better in terms of acceleration, braking, speed and fuel economy, their lower weight means better acceleration and stopping with less mass to move, it's easier to move it. This also helps with economy, as the engine doesn't have to overcome as much inertia every time you plant your foot.

  • Lower, sleeker sedans also slip through the air more easily than high-riding, bluff-fronted SUVs, and a lower coefficient of drag equals better fuel economy, and better performance.

  • Burning less fuel means less pollution, too which is better for the environment.

  • Depending on how keen you are to save the world or blast through it at a rate of knots, there's usually a range of petrol, diesel and hybrid engines in high-volume sedans.

  • Hot hatches and wagons aside, there's no other way to combine the space and practicality needed for family life with economy, performance.


Drawbacks of a Sedan:

Using a sedan on a paved road is a dream. However, in a country like India where road conditions are poor, sedans are not quite popular. Their long wheelbase, coupled with low ride height, means their underbodies will likely suffer damage while navigating potholed roads. Now, who wants their car to suffer any sort of damage while doing nothing but navigating roads?


Top most popular sedans cars are:

Sedan is a one the basic standard city car for an individual and for small families. Sedans have unparalleled comfort. Today, even a mid-size sedan like the Hyundai Verna offers features such as ventilated seats, which are not offered on much costlier cars, SUVs included.
