A Saloon is a mid-size passenger car that is larger than a hatchback in most cases and smaller than an estate vehicle. It usually features a long body style with a larger boot than that of a hatchback, which is separate from the rest of the car. This reduces noise in the interior as immediate access to the boot is not given. Saloons are low profile and are very versatile with an amazing sleek design in a lot of cases.
