So what am I claiming?

Car Search Design Examples

My concept, 3 inputs followed by a button to commit the search
Auto Trader uses a stacked car search
A one row search bar, but couldn’t be considered ‘the same’ as my design
A more typical used car search layout, stacked drop downs centred over a ‘hero’ background
A single row search feature that uses a more industry accepted ‘Min Price’ and ‘Max Price’ labels for inputs
A more simplified stacked search
A single row search check, 3 inputs, check, a search button, check…

Worth noting
