When the time comes to buy a new car, many Naperville drivers visit their local dealership with no clear vehicle preferences in mind. Friendly, knowledgeable sales staff are always happy to help customers find a car that fits their lifestyle needs, but the driver who does a bit of research beforehand can efficiently use his or her time to test drive a few new or used cars and consider which optional features to select. The guide below can help uncertain drivers choose between various body styles.


Coupes are two-door cars with performance-oriented features. The 2013 Cadillac CTS, for example, has a 318-horsepower engine designed to deliver maximum torque and acceleration. This type of car is perfect for drivers, such as young singles or empty-nest retirees, who have no children to transport.


A sedan has four doors and a much larger backseat than a coupe, which allows it to comfortably transport more adults on longer drives. Sedans are also perfect for families with several small children. Luxury models such as the Cadillac XTS have added safety features including extra side airbags to keep all passengers safe in the event of a collision.


Larger than a sedan but smaller than a full-size SUV, a crossover offers ample seating, extra cargo space and high ground clearance, making it a truly versatile vehicle. Crossovers such as the Cadillac SRX can handle an outdoor adventure just as easily as a daily commute in Naperville.
