A wagonette (little wagon) is a small horsecar with springs, which has two benches along the right and left side of the platform, for people to sit facing each other. The driver sits on a separate, front-facing bench. A Wagonette may be open or have a tilt (cover). A large horse-drawn vehicle with spring-suspension, a similar arrangement of the seats and obligatory ceiling is called an omnibus.
The 1914 book Motor Body-building in all its Branches By Christopher William Terry, defined a shooting-brake as a wagonette provided with game and gun racks and accommodation for ammunition.
