Have you ever wondered what those letters in the names of car models mean? If you want to buy a BMW vehicle, would you know what the salesperson is offering you by the name alone?
Well, that’s why you have us to make your life easier.
Confusing letters in the name of a vehicle model are there to describe its body style. Moreover, they are often combined to give you more information about the car right off the bat. In that sense, there are standard and specific vehicle model markings.
These are considered universal for all car brands:
However, there are also car brand distinctions. If you are buying a BMW vehicle, for example, have these in mind:
So, if a salesperson offered to sell you a BMW 335is, you would know that that is an Injection Rear-Wheel Drive car model, right? Or if he suggested a BMW 335xi, you would be aware that that vehicle model has an All-Wheel Drive with a petrol-injected engine, wouldn’t you?
There you go.
You are now prepared to go car hunting, but only as far as BMW is concerned. Other car brands may have differing labels for their vehicle models.
Furthermore, there are acronyms used in the automotive industry that don’t necessarily suggest a specific vehicle body description, but particular features of the car system itself. Knowing what those acronyms stand for could come in handy at the mechanic’s if he is explaining how something works and why the repair might set you back significantly. Or if you just don’t know who to call to resolve a certain compliance issue.
That’s why you have us, to put your mind at ease.
Now that you are all caught up on what all those annoying letters in the names of vehicle models mean, you are good to go and buy yourself a nice new car.
