There are cars for every type of person. A soccer parent who does the carpool three times a week might prefer an SUV or van, while a new college student might be looking to purchase a gas-efficient sedan. As one can imagine, a vehicle, be it luxury or more economical, is safest with a functioning, crack-free windshield. With an efficient and worry-free mobile service, Glass America offers windshield repairs and replacements right to your door.
That being said, the make and model of a vehicle will determine the type of windshield needed. Not only will the size of the vehicle understandably affect the size of the windshield but so does its price point and intended purpose. A luxury vehicle will require a different type of windshield than a truck modeled to withstand mountain terrain and rougher environmental scenarios.
For example, let us take a look at some of the most popular cars in the United States in order to describe how windshields might be different for each one.
The Nissan Versa is one of America's most popular sedans. A sedan can be a small to medium-sized vehicle. Although the make and model of a car are relevant to every windshield replacement, many sedans are similar in size and so are their windshields. Depending on the trim level selected, certain features may be built into the windshield.
Not only will the size of the vehicle understandably affect the size of the windshield but so does its price point. A luxury vehicle requires specific windshields that are often ordered through the dealership itself and these often have several features built into them if the car is to function as it was intended. Glass America takes the appropriate measures to get the right windshield for every car that crosses its path.
The Toyota Highlander is the most popular SUV in the United States. Due to their safety features, many consumers choose them for their growing families. They are larger in size and often have backup cameras, which make them ideal for carpool lanes and long family road trips. Because they are wider overall and are intended for tougher terrain, the windshield is larger than that of a sedan and they often have features built into their windshields.
4.The Ford F-series
These trucks are some of the biggest selling ones in America. Like many SUVs, trucks are built to withstand all environmental scenarios, like dirt roads, bumpy mountain trails, and other rough terrain. In order to prevent easy chips or cracks, these windshields are thick and larger than one of a sleeker luxury vehicle or sedan. Depending on the trim level for the truck, there are several options for features that are built into the windshield.
The Smart car, a small two-seater, is one of the smallest cars currently found in the United States. In this case, because the vehicle is much smaller than a traditional sedan, a Smart car requires a very specific, much smaller windshield that does not typically have many built-in features. That being said, in order to ensure the driver and passenger are safe in this smaller vehicle, the windshield must still be sturdy and not easily damaged. The windshield is very specific for this very small, but smart car.
