Hi there,

Could you teach me these car terms on the idiomatic usage, please?


This car has wood simulated accented trim on the panels. ("Accented trim" means decoration I think?)

This car has simulated leather accent on the seats. ("Accent" here means decoration I guess?)

This car has simulated leather accented trim on the seats. (Does it make sense to combine these two words "accented trim"?)


Cheers.

"Accent" can mean decoration, but for car interiors it means smallish bits artistically placed. "Trim" is all the small bits that cover seams and edges.

You can't really have accented trim. That would require some explanation to be understandable. And it's "simulated wood". Also, I don't know what this panel is. There are many panels in a car. Maybe "This car has simulated wood accents on the door panels."

"Accent" is not non-count here. It seems strange that the seats would have simulated leather accents. A seat is too functional for that to my mind. But "This car has simulated leather accents on the seats."

Not really. I can't form any sort of picture from that. The trim would have to be made of pieces of simulated leather decorating whatever the bulk of it was made of.

Thank you Mr anonymous.

Hi Mr. Anonymous,

Could you check for me if I have made any mistakes in these terms, please?


This new model car come with or in

1) 3 trims levels. (XL, GL, GT) (Here mean equipment)

2) Wood trims on the all window panels. (Seam, edge, in here generally they mean decoration)

3) Wood accents on the all window panels. (Generally they mean decoration)

4) Black leather accents on the seats. (Generally they mean decoration)


Thanks in advance.
