Make and model of the car - not identical concepts, as many believe.
There are huge differences between them.
One brand of the machine can be a lot of models.
Mark the machine - this basic concept. We can say that this is a trademark brand. For example, a mobile phone Nokia N8 - in this case Nokia - the brand, and N8 - model. Similarly, it is with cars. Mark Skoda, Yeti or model Octavia. Brand machine often determines its affiliation to a particular automotive companies. For example, VAZ brand cars made in the plant AvtoVAZ.
Every car brand has a model, and not just one. Model - a type of vehicle (body type), is issued under a specific brand. For example, Forester, Outback, Impreza, XV, BRZ, Legacy, Tribeca, WRX - range of Subaru brand. You can draw an analogy with the name. The family of the Ivanovs have Masha, Igor, Alain and Stepan. All of them are of the same family name but have different names. So the family has Suzuki Swift, SX4 and the Vitara.
That hides the name
The origin of the brand name of the car maybe different. This can be an abbreviation - BMW stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke, which translated from German means "Bavarian Motor Works". Well-known car Mercedes was named after the daughter of the head offices of Daimler in France. If we talk about the Mercedes brand in detail, you should get the names of models. All of them are in the name of letters and numbers. The letter is of the class, number - engine capacity (except for commercial vehicles). For example, E320 and A180. This means that the type of the body belongs to the class E, and the car has a displacement of 3.2 liters. In another example, the body belongs to the class type A and has a displacement of 1.8 liters. executive class Mercedes cars are indicated in the letter S, «budget" series - the letter A.
There are car brands, models of which are inits name only numbers, for example, some Chinese manufacturers. Moreover, there are a set of numbers, and remember the name of this model is that unless the sales manager in the showroom. Some automakers indicated in the title of the brand of the machine in figures the sequence of production - for example, Toyota Land Cruiser 80, 100, 200.
If the back of the car are 4WD stickers,AWD or sign 4 * 4, which means that the car has all-wheel drive transmission type. But because now all automakers strive for individuality, on the trunk lid can be seen quite cryptic abbreviations - TDSi (Ford) and JTD (Fiat), indicating the diesel engines.
