Sedans are predominantly the major vehicle drivers go with in the US if they don’t drive a truck or SUV. But the five-door hatchback counterparts are growing in popularity and offer a wholly different driving experience. So where do you fit in the sedans vs. hatchbacks debate?
Sedan drivers love their vehicles because the market is so
vast and there are so many options in various sizes—from compact to large. Some
of these sedans have been around for decades and thus offer some peace of mind
in terms of reliability. Other drivers like sedans because they offer more
privacy with a locking trunk, whereas hatchbacks expose the contents of the
back of your car with major window.
However, hatchbacks are highly sought after because of their
superior resale value—partially because they are less common and thus harder
for used car buyers to find. Hatchbacks are also more practical with rear
folding seats that greatly improve the cargo area for luggage, groceries, and
sporting equipment. In most cases of a vehicle with a sedan and hatchback
variant, the hatchback boasts the superior cargo space. Hatchbacks are also
often considered more visually appealing, likely because they stand out more
easily in a sea of sedans on American roadways. If you like to make a bold
statement on the road, go with a hatchback.
Summer is the perfect time to set out from home and explore the surrounding wilderness and wildlife of Nebraska. Rather than spending warm and lovely summer nights shut up indoors, pack up the family vehicle and hit the road. Here are a few spots we here at Huber Chevrolet recommend visiting while you explore the great outdoors of Nebraska.
Nebraska’s largest lake reservoir is a beautiful place to visit with your family. Spend a few nights camping there and enjoy the 100 miles of beachfront in the area.
Scotts Bluff National Monument
The prairies of Nebraska give way to the scenic Scotts Bluff National Monument in Gering, Nebraska. If you’re feeling adventurous and want to take a family hike you’ll surely remember, take the steep walking trail up to the top of the bluff for 90-mile views.
Nebraska’s Wild West
Explore and experience our nation’s history by traversing Nebraska’s Badlands – such as venturing through Oglala National Grasslands – and the lush pine forests of the Sandhills. Perhaps you’ll want to hold off visiting Gibbon’s Rowe Sanctuary in the Sandhills until spring, so you and your family can witness the wonderous crane migration that takes place every year. In early spring, over 500,000 cranes land at the Platte River.
Henry Doorly Zoo
If you’re not feeling quite so compelled to set out on an outdoor adventure this summer, consider visiting Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo. This exceptional zoo is home to the world’s largest indoor swamp and indoor desert, and the country’s largest indoor rainforest. With such marvelous exhibits, the whole family will enjoy their day at the zoo.
If you need a new vehicle to get you to your outdoor destination this summer, then be sure to explore our lineup here at Huber Chevrolet.
