The sedan is one of the oldest car models to have stood the unrelenting test of time. Sleek, elegant, and spacious, they offer a unique combination of utility and aesthetic appeal. From the stylish Volkswagen Ameo to the classic Ford Mustang that we all yearned to own as teenagers, sedans never go out of style.
So which sedan is best for you? Let’s look at two prominent manufacturers in the sedan market, Volkswagen and Ford, and find what best fits your needs and lifestyle.
|Interior||The Volkswagen Passat has some latest editions in a long line of incredible sedans. 9 airbags, electronic stability control, ISOFIX child seat anchors, front and rear parking sensors, a monitoring system for tyre pressure, and a hill start assist, accompanied by LED headlamps, make the Passat one of the safest cars out there. With three-zone climate control, an 8-inch infotainment system and a massage function for the driver seat, these cars are top of the line. This puts them at a premier price point that you can combat with a second-hand car loan, so you can buy used cars.||The Ford Mustang comes equipped with 8 airbags, including a passenger knee airbag, ABS, ESC and traction, and ISOFIX child seat anchors, making this also an extremely safe car to own. With an 8-inch infotainment system, and a 9-speaker sound system, it does not fall far behind the Passat. In fact, it rivals the premier sedans in the market, the Audi TT and the Mercedes Benz SLC.|
|Engine and Power||Volkswagen holds a prized spot on Carwale’s “Top 10 Sedans in India” with the Vento. There are three engine options. Both the 1.6-litre MPI and the 1.2-litre TSI petrol engines offers a power of 105PS, while the 1.5-litre TDI diesel engine offers 110PS.||The classic and timeless Ford Mustang is an absolute powerhouse, with the 5-litre petrol engine having a power of 401PS with a six-speed automatic transmission. The car handles like a dream and has a torque of 515Nm!|
|Mileage||The 1.2-litre TSI runs 18.19 kilometres per litre, while the 1.6 MPI with its five-speed transmission offer 16.09 kilometres per litre. The diesel engine has the most impressive mileage, at 22 kilometres per litre.||The Mustang is not known for its mileage, which sits at 13 kilometres per litre.|
|Exterior||The Volkswagen Passat has a panoramic sunroof, plenty of legroom and leather upholstery. It screams of opulence and luxury.||The latest Mustang by Ford has an updated bonnet and front grille, giving a new facelift to a classic car. It also has all-LED front lights, as well as quad tailpipes!|
