A buyer generally gets confused with the various terminologies with respect to the price of the new vehicle. These terms are applicable to the new cars only. There are two types of prices a user must know that are explained as follows:
Ex-Showroom Price: This is the price at which a dealer sells the new car to the retail customer. This price includes cost of transportation, applicable Excise Tax, dealer margin and more. Ex-showroom price may differ from state to state but it remains same for a state.
On-Road Price: This is the actual price payable by the retail customer to the authorized dealer. It is even called as Invoice Value of the vehicle. This price further includes some charges like accessories costs, State Registration Charges, Insurance charges, Delivery charges (Logistic Charges), lifetime Road Tax, and any additional warranty coverage. On-Road price is the final price a buyer pays, and it may vary from dealer to dealer within the same state.
Car is a big time utilitarian and a luxurious medium of transportation. Customers have multiple options when they start searching for a car. Various cars are different in the body style and capacity. Below find out different types of car:
Hatchbacks are the basic car type designed with a passenger cabin and a cargo section. These cars usually have two rows of seats, and commonly rear seat is foldable (fold-down), making substantial space for cargo. The integrated cargo section can be accessed from the backside of the vehicle by a single, a large flip-up window or top-hinged tailgate. Hatchbacks often are three-door with two entry doors, or five-door with four entry doors. Examples: Hyundai i10, Maruti Swift, Volkswagen Polo, and others.
Sedan is a best choice as a passenger car with two rows of seats and huge space in the rear for adult passenger. These cars usually come with a big trunk space. Sedans are available in two-door or four-door models. Examples: Hyundai Verna, Honda City and more.
SUV, commonly known as Sport Utility Vehicle, is a passenger car with towing and hauling capacity of a pickup truck. SUV has the passenger carrying space equivalent to a minivan along with a station wagon providing on or off-road capabilities. These utility vehicles come with a combined compartment for passengers and cargo. SUVs generally have three rows of seats with a spacious cargo section behind the last row of seats. Examples: Mahindra XUV, Tata Safari, Honda CRV and more.
MUV is an abbreviation for Multi-Utility Vehicle. The shape of MUV is similar to the van, which is designed specifically for personal use. This is taller than hatchback or sedan and designed to offer maximum interior space to occupy more occupants. MUVs are popular for long trips with friends and family. Examples: Toyota Innova, Maruti Ertiga and more.
Convertible cars come with a flexibly operating roof called as retractable hardtop, whether it is made of strong or rigid material as steel. These can be easily converted from coupe to convertible and vice-versa at press of a button. The collapsible section of roof is crafted of flexible canvas or vinyl or an articulated folding frame.
Coupes are smaller cars, also called as sporty version of sedans. These cars have just two doors instead of four. Coupes generally offer passenger space for two in front and two in rear.
Crossovers are the utility vehicle built with the features combining that of a SUV or a passenger car like hatchback. With a unibody structure that of a hatchback or a typical passenger car, crossovers offer perfect blend of hatchback design and SUV design attributes like independent rear suspension, fuel economy, car-like handling, high H-point seating, tall interior packaging, high ground-clearance, or all-wheel-drive capability.
