FAQs about sedans

These days, a sedan is any car with four doors, a fixed roof, and a separate trunk area. They come in a wide variety of sizes, from subcompacts like the Kia Rio to ultra-luxury four-doors like the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. In the earliest days of the automobile, “sedan” began to be used in the United States to describe a hard-top four-door car as early as 1912, when Studebaker used it to market the Studebaker Four and Studebaker Six. Overseas, the same type of vehicle has different names, for example, in England they’re known as a “saloon.”
