Big family

The brand of the machine is a basic concept. We can say that it is a trademark brand. For example, the Nokia N8 - in this case the Nokia brand N8 model. Same is the case with cars. Make Skoda, model Yeti or Octavia. The make of the car often determines its affiliation to a particular carin relation to the concern. For example, the brand of the car VAZ made at AVTOVAZ plant.

Every car brand has a model, and not one. A model is a type of car (body style), produced under a certain brand. For example, Forester, Outback, Impreza, XV, BRZ, Legacy, Tribeca, WRX model range of the brand Subaru. You can draw an analogy with the name. In the family Ivanovs is Masha, Igor, Alena and Stepan. All of them have one name, but they have different names. And in the family of Suzuki is Swift, SX4 and Vitara.

What does the name

The origin of the name of the car brand can be different. It can be the abbreviation BMW stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke , which translated from German means "Bavarian motor works". Everyone knows the Mercedes car was named after the daughter of the head of the representative office of Daimler in France. If we talk about the brand Mercedes in detail, it is worth looking at the model name. They are all in the name of the letter and number. The letter denotes the class number – the volume of the engine (except trucks). For example, the E320 or A180. This means that the body belongs to the class of E, and the car has an engine capacity of 3.2 liter. In another example, the body type is belong to class A and has a volume of 1.8 liter engine. Luxury cars at Mercedes are designated with the letter S, the "budget" series - with the letter A.

Mysterious figures

There are brands of cars, models of which are in your name only numbers, for example, some Chinese manufacturers. Moreover, there is a set of digits, and to remember the name of this model but maybe a sales Manager in the showroom. Some manufacturers specify the name of the brand of machine numbers the sequence of production – for example, the Toyota Land Cruiser 80, 100, 200.

If on the back of the car is a sticker 4WD, AWD or sign 4*4, it means that the car has four-wheel drive type of transmission. But because now all automakers are striving for individuality, on the trunk lid you can see quite cryptic acronym – TDSi (Ford) or JTD (Fiat), indicating diesel engines.
