Your Audi Auto Body Style Guide at Keyes Audi

If you’re looking for a 2017 Audi vehicle, we suggest that you stop by our location on Van Nuys Boulevard to view our inventory of new Audi automobiles. As you’ll see when you get here, our inventory includes the latest Audi models and a host of different body styles. If you’re like a lot of consumers, you may be wondering which body style will suit your lifestyle the best. Keep reading to learn about three of our most popular body styles and see if one of them is right for you.

Hatchback: While you may be familiar with the 2017 Audi A3 as a sedan or convertible, it’s also available as a hatchback. Hatchbacks like the Audi A3 are generally known for having a generous amount of cargo space that can be accessed by a gate or a door located at the back of the automobile. While the Audi A3 has four passenger doors, some smaller hatchbacks have just two.

When you visit our Los Angeles, CA Audi dealership to look at the 2017 Audi A3, you may think the hatchback resembles a station wagon. While the two body styles do share some characteristics, you can tell them apart from one another by looking at their construction. A hatchback has no more than three roof pillars whereas a station wagon has an additional pillar that’s designed to separate the roof from the vehicle’s rear panel.

Sedan: A lot of drivers look at sedans like the 2017 Audi A4 when they’re shopping for a family car or a vehicle that’s appropriate for the office. A typical sedan has four doors and a trunk for transporting cargo. Unlike a hatchback, you access a sedan’s cargo space by lifting a trunk lid instead of opening a gate or door.

While sedans like the 2017 Audi A4 have enough comfortable seating for five passengers, some smaller sedans only have seating for four people. Some drivers confuse sedans with coupes, especially larger coupes. To tell the difference between the two body styles, remember that a sedan has four doors by definition while a coupe traditionally has just two.

SUV: Many people use the terms “SUV” and “crossover” interchangeably, but there is a difference between the two kinds of vehicles. An SUV is normally built on a truck platform while a crossover is typically built on a car platform. When you visit our Audi dealership to look at the 2017 Audi Q7, you’ll see that this sought-after SUV has raised ground clearance just like other SUVs do. As a general rule, SUVs are normally offered with four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive as an option if one of these systems isn’t already standard. If you decide to buy or lease a new Audi Q7 from our location, you’ll enjoy the sure footedness and peace of mind that standard all-wheel drive provides.

If you want to get better acquainted with the different body styles we have to offer and see which one is the best choice for you, visit Keyes Audi today.
