also: "private passenger vehicle"


Explanation:
I'm rating the foregoing advice with a "4", and it is indeed an excellent answer, to which I would only add that the term "private passenger vehicle", or "private passenger automobile", are terms frequently used in the US, especially in the insurance industry.
