Car or SUV: Which is Right for You?

Mercedes-Benz of Huntington

Not Sure if you want a Mercedes-Benz Car or SUV? Let us Help

SUVs and crossovers are all the rage these days and can be found on every road and in many driveways throughout Long Island. Families everywhere choose them as their go-to vehicle of choice.

But, what about the tried and true, traditional style of a classy, four-door sedan? Those sleek, luxurious cars that seat families comfortably and can hold a lot of cargo?

What about the exhilarating, sporty style of a coupe? The kind you take down winding back roads or into the city on the weekends.

It might be hard to decide between two or more styles of vehicles, but, here at Mercedes-Benz of Huntington, we want to help. Our collection of cars and SUVs includes an assortment of the best Mercedes-Benz has to offer in both styles.

Both of these styles of cars have their benefits for your family. While we would never presume to tell you what to buy, here we offer some perks of purchasing both, to help you in your decision-making process.

Mercedes-Benz Sedans & Coupes

Our Mercedes-Benz sedans and coupes are refined and stylish. Many have the Mercedes-Benz all-wheel drive 4MATIC option as well, meaning they're not only gorgeous to look at, they're also safe for your family. When you encounter the ever-changing weather and road conditions here on Long Island, an all-wheel drive system can be your best friend.

Our collection of luxurious sedans all seat five people and come with a long list of tech features. In fact, every Mercedes-Benz sedan we have in stock comes with the entertainment and safety features drivers want.

For those looking for a sportier ride, our collection of luxury coupes also come standard with many of the same entertainment and safety features (not to mention Mercedes-Benz 4Matic all-wheel drive).

With similar features packages and available all-wheel drive, the argument for a car comes down to two things - driver's comfort level and drivability:

  • Sedans and coupes are closer to the ground and easier to maneuver on city streets. However, many smaller crossovers also offer this same benefit. The final decision would have to rest on what you're most comfortable operating
  • Cars are known for giving drivers and passengers a smooth and quiet ride. In fact, while many SUVs and crossovers can offer similar experiences in seat comfort and legroom, the sedan and coupe style is known for superior insulation and a quieter ride.

Mercedes-Benz SUVs

The sporty Mercedes-Benz SUVs also have the all-wheel drive 4MATIC that the sedans have. Plus, they offer the legroom, seat comfort, and features the sedans can give drivers as well.

But, there are a few key dissimilarities between the two styles, and they could make all the difference in your decision-making process:

  • SUVs have a larger towing capacity. So, if your family life includes adventures with a boat or a camper, the Mercedes-Benz SUV might make a better choice.
  • SUVs have a higher ground clearance. This is another decision that comes down to the driver's personal preference. If you're more comfortable sitting a little higher up and having a commanding view of the road, this might make a better choice for you.
  • Several Mercedes-Benz SUVs can seat more than five people. While a sedan strictly seats five, there are some SUVs, including the Mercedes-Benz GLS, that have three rows and can more easily accommodate larger families.

Shopping for Mercedes-Benz Vehicles on Long Island

So, there you have it. Both our luxurious Mercedes-Benz cars and our capable SUVs can take you everywhere you want to go on Long Island, from the soccer field to the beach to the movie theatre, and both can handle all kinds of New York weather.

The choice between the two really comes down to your style and personality. The elevated seating position of the SUV, or the great fuel economy of the car? The choice is yours.

Still having trouble making your decision?

Sometimes the best way to get a feel for which vehicle suits you best is to actually get behind the wheel! With that said, we invite you to come visit us on East Jericho Turnpike in Huntington. Take a selection of both styles of vehicles out for a test drive and see which one you prefer driving.

Regardless of which one you choose, you can never go wrong with a vehicle from the most reputable car company in the world, Mercedes-Benz.
