    Well, now we consider the options for car bodies. Let's start with the closed body types.


    One of the most common types of cars. A distinctive feature is the three-volume body, in which there are three components - the interior, the trunk and the engine compartment. Sedan can be found in any class of car. Sedan was created for the convenience of passengers, and therefore in a small class there are almost none, and in the executive class they are more common.


    Also quite common type of car. A distinctive feature - the allocation of two compartments, engine and passenger, the latter is combined with the luggage compartment. The trunk acts as an aid. If necessary, the rear row of seats in the five-door version can be folded to increase the luggage compartment. Hatchback is a three-door. This option is more sporty.

    Station wagon

    A limousine differs from a sedan in that it is safer to negotiate passengers. This is done using a special partition between the driver and passengers. But it's not only in this partition. Limousines are much longer than sedans and, therefore, everything in the cabin is made for the comfort of passengers. These are luxury cars and they are noticeably more expensive than regular sedans. You can equip a limousine with anything to create additional comfort, as long as your bank account has at least six zeros.


    Machine with two-door body.Machines are usually bought because of the sporty image, because this class cannot boast of special capacity. But the coupe has a rigid suspension and features of the gearbox, so they are not quite suitable for traveling around the city. If you ask, what is a fast car, we will answer that coupe-class cars are usually equipped with sport engines and are designed for fast driving.


    Hardtops are only sedans or coupes, and their distinguishing feature is the lack of pillar. Began its development in America, about 50 years.

A convertible must be at least as long as a golf car. Mostly bought by young people, but you can also find representative cabriolets, which go to the rulers of states during public holidays or speeches.


    If you are thinking about how to choose a car for walks or trips on a deserted highway at high speed, you definitely need to purchase a roadster class car, the difference of whichis a sporty body shape, reclining top and having only two seats.

    And cargo body.


    Here, an indicator of what cars are reliable, roomy and powerful. This body type pickup. The rear cargo compartment of the car is separated from the four or double cab. The compartment is usually designed as a platform. Machines of this kind are made more durable because of their use in difficult conditions.
