Autók a történelem folyamán sok karosszériaváltozatban jelentek meg. Néhány típus még mindig gyártásban van, míg mások csak történelmi jelentűségűek. Ezen az oldalon szeretnénk bemutatni, nagyrészt besorolva (bár nem teljesen) fontosabb szempontok szerint: ár, méret és a megcélozni kívánt célközönség; egyes autómodellek elérhetőek természetesen többféle karosszériastílusban. Az alább látható besorolásban egyes, szorosan egymásra épült, összefüggő karosszériák (4x4 / SUV modellek vagy éppen a mikrobusz / MPV modellek) besorolása és stílusa nehezen elkülöníthető.

Ne feledd, mindegyik karosszériaváltozatnak az általános ismertségben van egy történelmi és egy műszaki definíciója, az ilyen megfontolásokat gyakran nem veszik figyelembe. Az idő múlásával minden típus általános gyakorlata, elnevezése és elképzelése fejlődik, változik. Például az emberek gyakran hívnak egy 4 személyes sportkupét "sportautó"-nak, amíg egyes megrögzött fanatikusok ragaszkodni fognak hozzá, hogy egy sportautó definíció szerint két személyes járművekre van korlátozva.

Először az angol megnevezés(eke)t közöljük (legtöbbször linkelve), utána a magyar hivatalos elnevezést (ha van), vagy egy elképzelt, jól érthető "kitaláció"-t a változatra. Ezek után pedig egy rövid, lényegretörő leírással próbáljuk bemutatni a típus jellegzetességeit.

Napjainkban is használt karosszériákSzerkesztés

4x4 , 4WD ("négyszer négy" , "négykerék-meghajtás") 
A négykerék-meghajtású autók olyan vezetést segítő műszerrel vannak ellátva, amivel mind a négy kerék egyszerre kapja a motortól származó erőt. Általában (de nem kizárólag) Európában terepjárókon alkalmazzák, Észak-Amerikában sport terepjárókon u.n. SUV-okon használják (lásd lejjebb).
Cabrio coach , Semi-convertible ("elő-kabrió") 
Egyfajta autótető, ahol egy behúzható textiltető szolgál napfénytetőként. Régebbi, veterán autókon alapelem volt pl.: Citroën 2CV; manapság már csak egy luxus opció az új autókhoz.
Cabriolet 
Egy szinoníma a convertible szóra (lásd alább).
 
Egy BMW M3 convertible
Convertible ("kabrió") 
Kivehető, vagy teljesen behúzható tető. Egy karosszériastílus kivehető vagy behúztató tetővel (és hátsó ablakkal). A kabriónak mozgatható oldal-ablaküvegei vannak ellentétben a roadsterrel, ahol ez többségében hiányzik.
Coupé (Európa) , coupe (USA) ("kupé") 
Egy kétajtós, 2- vagy 4-üléses autó fix tetővel. Ajtói általában hosszabbak, mint az azonos modell szedán változata, így a hátsó utastér is szűkebb; tető szintén alacsonyabb lehet. Ahol a hátsó ülések nagyon kicsik és szerepük elenyésző, azokat az autókat 2+2 személyesnek is nevezik (ejtsd: "kettő plusz kettő"). Eredetileg a kupétól megkövetelték, hogy legyen egy-egy ablaka minden oldalon, de ezt nem sok évig használták.
Coupé convertible 
A type of convertible with a rigid roof (as opposed to a fabric or vinyl roof) that retracts into the lower bodywork.
Coupe Utility (ute)

Targa top 
A semi-convertible style used on some sports cars, featuring a fully removable hard top roof panel which leaves the A and B pillars in place on the car body. (e.g. Fiat X1/9).

A related styling motif is the Targa band, sometimes called a wrapover band which is a single piece of chrome or other trim extending over the roof of the vehicle and down the sides to the bottom of the windows. It was probably named because the original Porsche Targa had such a band behind its removable roof panel in the late 60s.

Alternative namesSzerkesztés

Car manufacturers sometimes invent names for the body styles of their cars for the purpose of differentiating themselves from other manufacturers. These names are often, but not always, adaptations of other words and terms. The body styles themselves correlate closely to those listed above.

Aerodeck

Avant 
A name used by German maker Audi for their station wagon/estate car models.

(Spanish) In English: "the road". A trademark of Chevrolet, the 1959 El Camino was a half-car (front) and half-truck (back) with low walls surrounding the bed. In other words, it used the Coupe Utility body style. El Camino is used by some in the US as a generic term for any passenger car with an integral cargo bed. While the 1957 Ford Ranchero with similary body style debuted before the El Camino, it did not have the success of its Chevrolet counterpart. Also informally called pickoupe (a portmanteau of "pickup" and "coupe").
Caravan

Kammback 
Originally, a car with a tapered rear that cuts off abruptly, after that shape's inventor Wunibald Kamm, commonly seen especially on sports cars. However, this usage is rare nowadays. In North America during the 1970s this style was used in the Chevrolet Vega wagon and AMC Hornet wagon, and so many think of it as another word for "station wagon" or "hatchback" respectively even though it refers to the very specific aerodynamic design of the back of the car.
Nevada 
Popular station wagon/estate version of the Renault 21, so much that people dropped the 21 when referring to it.
Notchback 
Originally, a sedan or possibly a coupe with a backlight (rear window) which slanted backward, so that the top of the roof extended further backward than the bottom of the window.

Panorama 
Used by Fiat for station wagons during the late 1970s and early 1980s, notably the 127, 128 and 131. Replaced by the Weekend designation in the mid 1980s, but kept for passenger versions of light commercial vehicles.
Pillared Hardtop 
This name was used by Ford in the 1970s to describe its bodies which had frameless door glass like a hardtop, but retained a center pillar like a sedan. The 1972-1976 Torino sedans and wagons were of this type, as were the 1975-1979 Lincoln Town Cars. When GM introduced a similar style on their intermediates for 1973-1977, they called the two-doors Colonnade Hardtop Coupe and the four-doors, in a triumph of ad agency gibberish, Colonnade Hardtop Sedan. The 1976 Buick Century sedan used this configuration. Before Ford introduced its "Pillared Hardtops" in the early seventies, GM had the same body style available on its "C" body cars (Buick Electra 225, Oldsmobile 98 and Cadillacs) from 1965 to 1970. GM called them "semi-thin pillar sedans" as they had a slightly larger center pillars than other GM sedans (that were called "thin pillar sedans") but they had no window frames like the "thin pillar sedans" had.

Sports Wagon
A term used by a number of manufacturers in the North American market for their station wagon models, an example of the Sports Wagon would be the 1960's Buick Sport Wagon and the current Dodge Magnum.

SW
A term used by Peugeot to describe estates (eg. Peugeot 407 SW)

Historical body stylesSzerkesztés

Most early body styles were derived from those available in horse-drawn carriages and used the coachbuilding terms for them, although often their application in the automobile differed from the carriage use. Other types were soon invented, and either used modifications of earlier terminology or wholly new terms to describe them. Some of these terms are occasionally used in modern model designations, but almost always inaccurately with respect to their historical meaning (e.g. Lincoln Town Car, Volkswagen Phaeton).

Brougham 
Generally equivalent to a sedan, but more likely to have closed rear quarters and sometimes more luxuriously trimmed.
Close-coupled sedan 
A four-windowed sedan with a trunk that from front to rear was almost as thin as an upright suitcase. The rear-seat passengers sat a little bit forward of the differential. Ford Motor Company called its version a "Victoria" in the 1930s.

Phaeton 
An open car, normally describing a double or triple-row phaeton. There is often a folding fabric top but no side weather protection. Early Phaetons had a high-mounted rear seat for the driver. The modern VW Phaeton derives its name, but nothing else, from this style.
Roi des Belges 
Named after King Leopold II of Belgium who ordered the first example. A large open car with high built seats and the rear seat usually set higher than the front seat. Also know more rarely as a Tulip Phaeton because of the side profile of the rear of the car resembling the shape of a tulip flower head..
