Did you know that there are many cars that share a large number of the same parts and components? Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 models, for example, share the same engines and mechanical parts. Perhaps the only thing that sets them apart is the exterior styling and cabin design.

This phenomenon is not strange or new, and it relates to the term "car platform", so what is the latter?

Interpretation of the car platform

A car platform is a group of major parts and components that are designed and produced for use on a number of models, because developing different parts and components for each model is very expensive.

In other words, two cars from two different companies can use the same platform (i.e. the same main components).

What does the car platform consist of?

The components vary from platform to platform, but the most common ones are:

- Bodywork floor

The front and rear axles of the car and the distance between them, or what is known as the wheelbase

Vehicle steering mechanism components

Components of the car suspension system

- Engine and transmission options

When we say cars share the same platform, this means that they share the same components mentioned above. The Chevrolet Tahoe has the same mechanical components as the GMC Yukon, although their design differs from the outside and inside.

For example, the Hyundai group has developed a number of platforms for its different cars, for example, it has a platform called "Hyundai-Kia GB platform", and it is used for a number of its models, which are: Hyundai Accent, Hyundai i20, Hyundai Venue (Creta), Hyundai Kona, Kia Rio, The Kia Stonek.

Each group (not just the Hyundai group) has at least one platform that it uses on a number of its cars. The Volkswagen Group has developed a platform called MLBEvo that is used for a large number of its cars, including Audi Q8, Lamborghini Urus, Porsche Cayenne, Bentley Bentayga, Volkswagen Touareg and others.

In conclusion, the next time you hear someone say that Nissan cars are much better than Renault cars (or vice versa), you can argue that the two brands use the same platforms (and therefore, the same major components), so the differences between their rival models may Be simple.
