Can you pl tell me what are the various segments that cars fall under???

I mean- small cars, sedanes, SUVs, etc and what is the basis for classifying them in these categories. ie. length, height etc.

Also kindly provide with some Indian car examples.

Thanks

See segment is a broader view of telling what type of car is it in its own category like the swift is in higher segment to santro zen alto etc. The segment is some what dependant to the price like safari costs 10lakhs whereas caryenne cost 10000000 i.e. 10 times its price.

they are mostly classiefied on engine.... size..... cost.... and lot's more

 

their are many cars which are costlier than the cars in the next segment.... so no one factor decides it's segment....

 

probably i am not perfect at this so please correct me if i am wrong
