I don't disagree - my own ideas are just an opinion too.

Who decides on the categories - I'm not sure? Car makers themselves obviously give names that suggest categories, but they may not make much sense at times!

An example of the range of categories (as defined by some official bodies) can be found at - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Car_cl...lassifications

2020 Audi S3 - (hatchback variant is also available).







'As with the outgoing car, the S3 will adopt a set of quad exhaust pipes housed in a diffuser-style rear bumper, bespoke performance alloy wheels, larger brake discs and slightly extended wheel arches for a sportier stance. Bespoke badging at the front and rear, not featured on these prototypes, will also likely feature. '

It might be stretching it to call it a 'luxury' car, but this seems to be the only thread for saloon cars.

New 2022 Honda Civic prototype revealed in saloon form





Honda has revealed the next-generation Civic for the first time, showcasing a prototype of the saloon variant that will go on sale in the United States next year.

Autocar report that the saloon will not be available in the UK. (UK buyers tend to avoid smaller saloons in the main anyway over hatchback alternatives).

They are also reporting that the Type R and Si will be coming to the UK, with these having Hybrid powertrains. (Honda have previously committed to all European models being electrified by 2022).

Probably the same here in the Netherlands and rest of Europe, or at least the western part.

The Civic belongs to the small and family cars thread. Fortunately I'm not an admin


The rear end looks like an Acura, or a Volkswagen, or a decade-old Lexus.

The S63e AMG and S73e AMG are to be revealed.
2021 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class revealed

'At 5469mm long, the Maybach S-Class is a full 18cm longer than even the long-wheelbase version of the standard Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The firm claims this increase “entirely benefits the rear”, making it ideal for high-end chauffeurs.

The upgrade isn’t limited to more space, however, with the twin Executive seats fitted as standard allowing independent adjustment of the squabs and backrests.

Mercedes also claims that the footrest attached to the front seat and the electrically extending legrest (itself 50mm longer than that in the old Maybach S-Class) allows for a “continuous, comfortable reclining surface for a pleasant sleeping position”.'
