3.10 Automobile Classification by Size 
 
3.10.1 introduction: The purpose of this classification is to describe the sizes of automobiles involved in motor vehicle  crashes. 
 
3.10.2 categories: There are three mutually exclusive categories of automobile size, based on wheelbase expressed to the nearest inch. Where a finer breakdown is desired, the three-category set may be expanded to a seven-category set. 
 
3.10.2.1 three-category set: Primary automobile size categories are:
 
Small — wheelbase 99 inches (2.51 meters) or less 
 
Midsize — wheelbase 100 to 109 inches (2.54 to 2.77 meters) 
 
Large — wheelbase 110 inches (2.79 meters) or more 
 
3.10.2.2 seven-category set: Secondary automobile size categories are: 
 
Ultra small — wheelbase 89 inches (2.26 meters) or less 
 
Mini-compact — wheelbase 90 to 94 inches (2.29 to 2.39 meters) 
 
Subcompact — wheelbase 95 to 99 inches (2.41 to 2.51 meters) 
 
Compact — wheelbase 100 to 104 inches (2.54 to 2.64 meters) 
 
Intermediate — wheelbase 105 to 109 inches (2.67 to 2.77 meters) 
 
Full-size — wheelbase 110 to 114 inches (2.79 to 2.90 meters) 
 
Largest — wheelbase 115 inches (2.92 meters) or more 
 
3.10.3 guide to classification: It is not expected that automobile size categories will generally be determined by investigating officers or entered on crash report forms. These data ordinarily may be obtained more economically and accurately by computer interpretation of vehicle identification numbers (VINs), from tables of size by year, make and model, or by other means.
