Below, we will give you a short summary of the different types of cars. We will look at the differences between hatchback, sedan, liftback, family, coupé, sport, restyling, hybrid, SUV, 4x4 and the different positions of the rear shelf of the boot.
Vehicles with 3 or 5 doors with rear window included in the boot, this means that, when you open the boot, the rear window moves with it. (It’s considered as 5 doors when the boot includes the rear window). Boot with a large incline.
Vehicles with 4 doors with rear window separated from the boot, this means that, when you open the boot, the rear window doesn’t move with it. (It’s considered as 4 doors when the boot DOES NOT include the rear window).
5 door vehicle with a similar look to the Sedan but with the glass integrated into the boot.
Family versions, some available with 7 seats.
Vehicle with 2 doors, boot without rear windows. Sporty style.
Similar vehicle to the 3 door hatchback but with a sportier style, without being a coupé.
Vehicles with opening roof, convertible.
Off-road vehicles with 4x2 or 4x4 versions. Some available in 7 seats.
