Quick Answer: What Is A Touring Car Model??

In the early days of automobiles, through the 1940’s, a touring car actually had a longer and larger passenger compartment, almost like a station wagon.

In today’s language, a touring model usually means an option package for a 4-door sedan, which includes things which can be helpful for drivers who go on longer trips.

Why are they called touring cars?

The style was popular from the early 1900s to the 1920s. The cars used for touring car racing in various series since the 1960s are unrelated to these early touring cars, despite sharing the same name. The term “all-weather tourer” was used to describe convertibles (vehicles that could be fully enclosed).

What does luxury touring mean on a car?

What does touring trim mean?

Higher trim levels either will add to the features of the entry-level model (often called the “base” model) or replace them with something else. Trim levels are where you’ll come across terms such as EX, LTZ, Touring and Grand Touring, among countless others. Style and trim level are generally interchangeable terms.
