Car I.D.

Question

Posted (edited)

Can anyone identify this car? I'm hopeless with them. (Click on the image for full size, this one appears squashed)

Thanks,

Alex

Hello Alex,

 

Sorry I don't know the type of car. If you knew the registration number there are sevaral free websites that will reveal some basic information such as make and year.

 

I use "is my car taxed", a uk gov site.

 

Now if this were a cop show, somone would shout "Enhance that picture.." and the techy would make the car bigger and rotate it by 90 degrees...

Alas, this was in Iceland and the car was moving at a fair lick, so no further information possible!

I think we're going to need a 100% crop to be able to make it out.

When I say "we", I mean not me. I stopped being able to identify new cars sometime between the Sweeney and Target.

Too small to be sure but if pressed I'd guess at a Toyota RAV

I would question whether it's necessary on this pic. Anyone searching for that model of car isn't going to be looking for a tiny unrecognisable shot of it in the distance, so it's more likely to hurt your CTR than get a sale. The picture will sell on impact rather than detail.

It has been said before I would like to be able to zoom in on the vehicle, but my guess is it's a Lexis possibly a GTX 460.  Try a web site "Auto Trader" and search for a few brands of SUV's, that might help with the basic shape of the vehicle and give you a "best guess".

I think I'd want to identify it if I could. I've certainly tagged more incidental vehicles than this.

Could be an early model Toyota Rav 4 . Sorry but it’s a long way away . Just say small SUV

I looked at the Iceland car hire website lagooncarrentals.

Renault and Dacia have similar 5 spoke wheels, a few more hours searching will solve the puzzle, off you go!

Looking at a miniature car 😉... It seems like a SsangYong Rexton first generation - Rexton W second facelift. Detail: Boot spoiler, rear quaterpanel, C-Pillar, rear light, front grille light.

I have used Firefox, Ctrl+ (Maximum zoom level until 300%), helps to look at the details more quickly.

 

Compared with:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SsangYong_Rexton  
-> Rexton W, second facelift (Rexton 2016)

Shape of the rear windows makes a compelling case.
