Design and Function
Every car was built to fit a purpose, whether that be cheap transportation, luxurious comfort, raw power, or cargo capacity. The purpose of the car is determined by the design of the engine, the suspension for the wheels, and the interior space. A sedan or compact is built for pavement, having a low suspension. A cheaper sedan has a smaller engine with less power output, while a more expensive sedan has a bigger engine. A sport utility vehicle handles more rough terrain with a higher suspension, and can hold between five and eight people for more passenger and cargo space.
Strapping more weight in an unwieldy cargo space to your car can create performance problems both for the driver and the vehicle. Whether you are towing a cargo trailer, a recreation trailer, or a flatbed trailer, your entire vehicle will most likely double in length and require a much wider turning radius. Someone with little to no experience towing a trailer should not be driving alone. Most utility trucks and SUVs come with their own towing kit and hitch, but sedans usually need one installed to properly adapt to a trailer.
Almost every motor needs a transmission, and that includes the smaller motors found in quad bikes, dirt bikes, and motorcycles. These smaller motors usually have only one or two cylinders, and therefore output less power. However, because of the lighter weight of the overall vehicle, they are capable of speeds similar to that of a car, though they often go slower depending on the terrain. These motors are far more fuel efficient than car motors, but because they carry less fuel in the tank, they require refuelling just as often.
