      Car design encompasses various styles and approaches, influenced by factors such as functionality, aesthetics, technology, and cultural trends.

      Common types of car design:

      • Sedan:
        • Sedans are characterized by a three-box configuration: engine compartment, passenger compartment, and trunk. They are often associated with a more formal and traditional design.


      • Hatchback:
        • Hatchbacks have a rear door that opens upward to provide access to a cargo area. They are known for their practicality and versatility, offering a balance between a sedan and a wagon.


      • Coupe:
        • Coupes are typically two-door cars with a sleek and sporty design. They often have a lower roofline and a more aggressive appearance compared to sedans.


      • Convertible/ Roadster:
        • These cars have a retractable roof that can be folded down, allowing for an open-air driving experience. Roadsters are typically smaller, two-seater convertibles.


      • SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle):
        • SUVs are designed to be versatile and capable on and off the road. They often have a higher ground clearance and a more rugged appearance. Subcategories include compact, midsize, and full-size SUVs.


      • Crossover:
        • Crossovers combine features of SUVs and passenger cars, offering a higher driving position and sometimes all-wheel drive. They are designed for urban and suburban use.


      • Wagon/ Estate:
        • Wagons, or estates, have a longer roofline and a larger cargo area compared to sedans. They are known for their practicality and are often chosen for family use.


      • Sports Car:
        • Sports cars are designed for high performance and typically have a focus on speed, handling, and aesthetics. They often have a two-door, two-seater configuration.


      • Luxury Car:
        • Luxury cars prioritize comfort, advanced technology, and high-quality materials. They often feature premium amenities and a smooth, refined ride.


      • Electric and Hybrid Cars:
        • With the growing emphasis on sustainability, electric and hybrid cars are becoming more prevalent. Their designs often incorporate aerodynamics and unique features to accommodate alternative powertrains.


      • Supercar/ Hypercar:
        • Supercars and hypercars represent the pinnacle of automotive performance and technology. They are designed for extreme speed, aerodynamics, and exclusivity.


      • Concept Cars:
        • Concept cars are prototypes created by manufacturers to showcase innovative design, technology, and features. They may or may not be intended for production.

      Car designs are continually evolving as manufacturers strive to meet changing consumer preferences, technological advancements, and regulatory requirements. Many cars today may fall into multiple categories, reflecting a blend of design elements to meet diverse market demands.
