Wagon, Targa Top, Brougham- the classifications we give cars can seem endless, but there's actually good reason for why we name cars the way we do. Spoiler: a lot of it has to do with carriages. Lol. Join Nolan and take a DEEP dive into the history of car naming conventions. Do you know them all? I bet you don’t!
WheelHouse answers all the questions about the automotive world you never thought to ask. Nolan Sykes looks at the history, sociology and psychology behind the cars you love, and the features you might overlook.
Some of our best videos ever are coming out soon, stay tuned so you won't miss a thing!

  • in german we have cut the suv in to tho categories, there is the suv (big, sporty, high roadcar mostly with unibodys) and Geländewagen (big, strong, can tow a lot, and capable to go offroads with out problems) As an example, we had a lot of snow this winter, and you could clearly see the difference, the suv where getting stuck (sliping when going up hills, digging them selfs in to the snow...) while the Geländewagen/Offroader where getting along quite nicely. as two exemples. the typical SUV here is the Jeep Grand Cherokee. the typical Offroader would be the Klass G. Althoung there are cars in between. my family own an 2018 Ssangyong Rexton. it looks like an SUV but it goes over every thing you'll if you try and it searves great purpose of pulling trailers.

  • Unfortunately, so centred on American terminology and styling that this is virtually useless for anybody from Europe. One example "Coke Bottle" styling wasn't created by Mr Lowey, this style can certainly be traced back as far as... wait for it...1953! Aston Martin's DB3S was quite clearly this style, and you could even legitimately claim that the Jaguar XK120 was this style, and that was produced from 1948!

  • I would say that they don't know American cars as well as they should beacuse in the 50s 60s and 70s some of the most popular body styles of American cars and even some Foreign cars were a body style that never even got metioned two door and four door hardtops!.In the late 50s and early 60s there were even 4door hardtop station wagons. What a Hardtop was was the mating of a coupe or sedan with the openess of a convertible with a fixed roof!. These were some very big sellers in the USA during the 50s 60s and 70s. Some car makers over in Europe still make those. Btw the real definition of a hardtop is a car of 2 or 4doors with no b pillar and no door window frame!. 1949 Oldsmobile 98 holiday Buick Roadmaster Riviera or Cadillac series 62 Coupe Deville are the earliest examples.

  • I got one you didn't cover, but that's okay. It's called a liftback. It's basically a fastback hatchback. The earliest examples I know of are the Toyota Celica from 1975, which they actually branded as a liftback, and the Mustang II from 1974. Other examples that I know of include the Fox Body Mustang from the 80s and the Porsche Cayman. The difference between liftback and a hatchback is that on a hatchback the hatch is mostly vertical and swings out to the rear before swinging up away from the ground. On a liftback, the hatch is mostly or entirely the semi-horizontal roof section at the back, and it swings directly up without coming back toward whatever's behind the car. Toyota also markets the Prius as a liftback, but but that's not as pure an example.

  • Mercedes is really confusing, because you can get the C- and E-Class as Sedans or Coupes, which means either 4 or 2 doors, but then you get the CLA-Class and the CLS-Class only as "coupes", but they have 4 doors and there is no 2 door model, BUT THEN you get the "AMG GT Coupe", a 2 door Sportscar also as the "AMG GT63s 4door Coupe", you can also get the GLC and GLE as "Coupes", both are SUVs which then have that weird looking back similar to the BMW X6M
