    Automobile nomenclature, including article titles, should generally take the form of make and model, for example, "Toyota Corolla" or "Volkswagen Passat". A two-part name is needed because many automobile model names, when taken by themselves, have multiple alternate meanings, such as "Fiesta," "Golf, "Cressida" or "911". Rather than create ad hoc ...

    Dedicated infobox templates have been developed for use in articles about automobile models, engines and platforms. The templates include blank examples that users can copy into articles, usage instructions and an example (showing the template code with example data and its corresponding appearance when published). Infobox usage should follow the c...

    We use the local standard first when making judgments on localized units and terms. The unit order follows a vehicle's major market. For example, the wheelbase of an American-market car would be written as "116 in (2,946 mm)", while the wheelbase of a car from a metric country would be written as "2,946 mm (116.0 in)". General conventions for units...

    Minimum standards

    We strive to illustrate our articles with high-quality images. We agree to the following general standards: 1. Images shall enhance the article in which they are placed and must feature the subject of the article section near which they are placed. 2. The image subject—automobile, engine, or component—must be the center of the image's composition. 3. Use the "thumbnail" option for all images other than those inside infoboxes. In accordance with Wikipedia:Manual of Style#Images, do not specify...


    Here are some things to keep in mind when creating an image of a car: 1. The front ¾ view from the height of an ordinary person is normally the best angle for a single picture of a car. 2. The illumination is key to obtaining a good image. Try to take pictures in the middle of the day or under bright but indirect lights. Make sure the sun is behind you—do not shoot into the sun. Overcast days offer great opportunities for taking pictures, since there are going to be fewer reflections from the...

    Calendar and model years

    Within the automotive sphere, calendar years are typically used internationally except in North America where the model year format is utilised. Unless the article is about an automobile produced by a North American company primarily for North American consumption; for example, many General Motors, Ford and Chrysler products, articles should prioritize calendar years over model years. Chevrolet Impala, being a General Motors product sold mainly in North America should use model years as the p...

    Section title end dates

    Section titles may have start dates (calendar years for most articles) but end dates should not be used. This is mostly for when the end date is disputed. Possible disputes are due to production ending except a single commercial variant continues for a few more years, or when the main factory ends production but a factory in another country continues making local variations in relatively small volumes.


    Car classificationcan be contentious because not all vehicles fall neatly into a particular class. Also, some classes are too subjective and should be avoided, such as "supercar", "hypercar", and "exotic". In general, models should be classified according to the country where the vehicle's manufacturer is headquartered (although if the vehicle was not sold there, it should be the country where the vehicle was launched). An article may also mention other major classification schemes, to provid...
