Sedan models priced between Rs 38 and 42 lakh

In Nepal, sedans have been overshadowed by the arrival of crossover cars and SUVs–which have a better offroad presence. Owing to the decline in the sedan’s popularity, its pricing has been lowered too, but there are still some holdouts for whom sedans still make sense: for these vehicles come with similar or more features than a typical hatchback or compact-SUV and are oftentimes regarded as safer, more fuel-efficient, and more luxurious. 

For those looking to buy sedans, here are four models, loaded with features, that are priced between Rs 38 to 42 lakh.
