Hybrid SUVs vs. Hybrid Sedans: What Alberta Residents Need to Know

Ever since the environment became a mainstream concern in the ‘70s, people have developed ways to shrink their carbon footprints. Some recycle or reuse their things, while others simply limit their use of plastic products or rely on mass transport systems. But since not everyone can easily forego the use of their cars, hybrid vehicles are considered the next best thing.

Hybrid vehicles initially met substantial criticism because of the sacrifices they entail. As yet, hybrids aren’t really known for their outstanding seating capacity or engine power. When one thinks of a hybrid car, the image that comes to mind is a small sedan with rather basic specs. Yet this image was thrown out the window with the introduction of hybrid sports utility vehicles (SUVs) into the automobile market.

The main criticism leveled against hybrid cars is that they are too small for comfort. A typical hybrid car, for example, can theoretically fit five adults with sixteen feet of spare cargo space. SUVs, on the other hand, are larger by design, which gives passengers a more comfortable and spacious ride. Full-size SUVs, for instance, can seat up to eight people with more than a hundred cubic feet of cargo space to spare.

Another major advantage SUVs have over sedans is their four-wheel drive capabilities. Hybrid SUVs still have this capability, although some hybrid sedans are already looking to install all-wheel drive capabilities. But for those in search for better traction and a better overall driving experience, it looks like the hybrid SUV is the best choice at the moment.

Yet experts and consumers also note that hybrid SUVs don’t shrink one’s carbon footprint as much as hybrid sedans can. This is because the bigger the car, the more fuel-inefficient it becomes. Dealerships that sell Ford in Edmonton can tell you that the Ford Escape is the best SUV with 32 miles per gallon (mpg) in fuel efficiency—yet this pales in comparison to the Ford Fusion’s 40 mpg efficiency.

As with traditional SUVs and sedans, the base price of hybrid SUVs is still significantly higher than that of a sedan. The Ford Fusion Hybrid sells at about $28,000 while Fort McMurray car dealerships can get you a Ford Escape at around $30,000. For some, it might not be that big a difference, but for others, this is a significant selling point for the hybrid sedan.

Whatever type of hybrid vehicle you choose, make sure that you only work with trustworthy Edmonton or Fort McMurray car dealerships. For more information, you can visit, hybridcars.com/hybrid-suv or autos.com/car-buying/diesel-hybrid-sedan-vs-suv.
