What is the name of the car that carries the coffin?

Listen. If the body and casket were present at the funeral service, a hearse will be used to transport the casket to the cemetery or burial site. A hearse, sometimes called a coach, is a car that is used to transport a casket.

How many passengers fit in a funeral car?

How many seats they have is dependent on the style – a funeral limousine can usually accommodate 7-9 people. It is also possible to hire a full-size stretch limousine, the largest of which can carry 20 passengers.

Why do hearses have big engines?

Although hearses tend to be driven gently, as we’ve mentioned further up, they also tend to have reasonable powerplants stashed under the bonnet. 

There’s a reasonable amount of metalwork back there and caskets are pretty heavy, so a large engine is required to make progress easy.
