A Beginner’s Guide To Car Body Types

In case you’re feeling a little overwhelmed by the many different car body types out there, we’ve listed below some of the more common ones below to help you decide which one would be the best option for you.

MPV – Multi-Purpose Vehicle

A multi-purpose vehicle is a practical vehicle that often appeals to families and those who are looking for more space generally. The body of the vehicle often resembles a van and has both rear side doors and rear side windows.  There are often three seat rows which can seat up to seven people or more.

Example of a MPV: Ford Galaxy

SUV – Sporty Utility Vehicle

A sporty utility vehicle sits higher off the ground and often look big and chunky, with lots of power and cargo capacity. They differ from 4×4 vehicles as they are more suited to roads and city living rather than off-road. Their comfort and stability make motorway speeds easy and the light controls make city driving easy.

Example of an SUV: Range Rover Evoque

RangeRoverEvoque

Hatchback

The hatchback is the largest option before moving up to a saloon. The whole rear end opens to allow access to the boot.  It often has a sloping back with a hinged rear door that opens upwards , and the boot lid and windscreen are one piece that move simultaneously.

Example of a hatchback: Volkswagen Golf

Saloon

The saloon can come in all shapes and sizes, and consists of a boot is separate from the car’s passenger compartment. The legroom in the cabin is often roomier than in a hatchback, and it has a fixed roof that is full height up to the rear window. The saloon is one of the most common body styles of the modern car.

Example of a saloon: Audi A4

Coupe

Often sporty and with a sleeker profile than a saloon, particularly at the rear, the coupe often has 2 doors instead of 4. Some have a rear bench but this is generally only suitable for small people on small trips. The desirability factor of the coupe means that it can often cost more than the practical cars that they are based on.

Example of a coupe: Peugeot 407

Convertible

Put simply, a convertible is a coupe that has had its roof removed and replaced with a retractable cover. Sometimes called a cabriolet and sporty in style, it has a folding or retractable roof that can be hard or soft top. A convertible usually has 2 doors.

Example of a convertible: Mazda MX-5

mazdamx-5

Estate

An estate is usually based on a saloon or a hatchback but is longer in shape. Its rear window extends to the boot lid which allows useful extra cargo room.

Example of an estate: Volvo V60

Window Film = Improved Safety

One of the many benefits of getting your car windows tinted is improved safety.

Shattered car windows can be extremely dangerous to family, friends, pets or any other passengers travelling in your car, as well as to yourself. But window film helps prevent glass from shattering and so protects those in the vehicle from any potential flying glass shards. This is because the film is specially designed to keep glass from shattering.

Does Window Tint Successfully Reduce Heat In Cars?

caronfire2

Q: Does window tint successfully reduce heat in cars?

A: Yes!

Car window tint works by rejecting thermal rays from the sun that create heat whilst letting the wavelengths that create light pass through the window, dramatically reducing the heat (and therefore comfort) in the car successfully without blocking any light.

Although sunshades may be better at keeping the car dashboard cooler in sunny weather, it has proven that window tint is much more effective in cooling the car cabin, and at keeping it cool!

Experts have proven that window tint can reduce the heat in your car by up to 60%.

freelander-20-tint

There are many benefits to tinting your car windows. Here are our top five:

Window tint…

  1. Blocks up to 99% harmful UV rays which can cause damage to both passengers in the car and to the interior upholstery itself.
  2.  Helps to keep your car cool – window film reflects infra red rays from the sun, reducing the heat inside your car by up to 60%.
  3. Reduces glare – tinted windows can help protect from any glare that may reduce visibility, particularly in the winter months when the sun is low on the horizon, therefore increasing driving safety.
  4. Increases privacy and security of both passengers and belongings when using darker film on the rear windows.
  5. Provides style enhancement – window tint can dramatically improve the look of your car, whichever shade you go for.

A Day In the Life Of Window-Tint.co.uk!

img_1153

Here at Window-Tint.co.uk we are constantly working hard to bring our customers the very best products and services. Below we will give you a brief insight into what a typical day is like at our premises in Chester.

You could say that there are five distinct parts to our day:

1) The day begins as we enter the main office to answer any questions or comments we have had in from our customers. We aim to get back to customers as quickly and as helpfully as possible.

img_1158

2) At the same time across in the workshop, another member of the team will be collating and printing off all of the online orders that have been received. The orders are then sorted into relevant categories to make the production process quicker and more efficient.

3) Next is the production of the orders. The start of the week tends to be our busiest time in terms of order processing, and so speed as well as accuracy is extremely important. When required, members of the team will pair up into teams to make the process faster – while one produces the orders, another will package them ready for delivery later that day.

4) Once all of the orders have been completed, they will then be sorted into delivery options such as first or second class postage, and then declared and prepared for delivery.

5) Finally, the orders make their way to the local postage sorting office with the relevant paperwork, where they will begin their journey of distribution to our customers.

Meanwhile across in our Car Styling Centre, one of our trained technicians will be working hard on customers’ vehicles in order to give them a brand new look. Below are a couple of cars that were in our workshop last week.

Of course, no two days are ever the same, and we totally thrive on that. One thing, though, remains ever consistent – our commitment and dedication to customer service and satisfaction. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers for their support and custom – we really do appreciate it!
