What Are Some Common Car Dimensions?
For a large percentage of the car-buying public, the physical dimensions of a vehicle are far less important than some of its other aspects. For instance, considerations like the purchase price of a vehicle, its annual running costs, its warranty period, and warranty conditions or insurance costs often take precedence over any other considerations.
Nonetheless, there are times when a vehicle’s actual size may be an essential factor in a buying decision, especially when a vehicle is purchased for a specific purpose, such as carrying a particular type of cargo. In these cases, factors like the available interior volume, seating arrangement, and the ease of access to parking spots may be more important than the vehicle's annual running costs or its true cost of ownership in terms of insurance and maintenance costs.
