A number of auto experts believe that sedan is gradually losing its charm in the market. A major reason for the downfall of this model’s popularity is that due to increasing traffic, people prefer a compact car which is convenient to take around despite such busy roads. When someone looks for comfort and space in his car, he usually opts for an SUV due to its grandeur. The sedan falls somewhere in between these two categories.
