Ground Clearance FWD

Are there FWD vehicles that have a higher clearance to the ground (surface) than whatever would be considered a standard clearance? Thank you

In general, Honda sedans sit VERY low to the ground, with poor ground clearance. Virtually any other FWD sedan will have better ground clearance than a Honda FWD sedan.

So, in other words, if you are looking for good ground clearance, avoid Honda sedans. Does that help at all?

I’ve found smaller hatchbacks and sedans have higher ground clearances than larger vehicles, in general. One of the highest I’ve ever driven has been a Hyundai Accent hatchback.

However, any car info site will list the ground clearances for any vehicle. It just takes time to look at them all.

A lot of cars have less ground clearance than in prior years, It gives a very slight advantage in mileage.

Now how about telling us more. Why are you asking the question? If we know that, maybe we can answer your real question rather than just guessing and maybe not addressing your real question.

Cadillac Eldorado. Especially one from the 70’s.
