This carriage was designed and innovated in Hungary.Both innovations appeared around the same time and historians believe that people began comparing the chariot branlant and the Hungarian light coach.A carriage together with the horses, harness and attendants is a turnout or setout. Some horsecarts found in Celtic graves show hints that their platforms were suspended elastically.Four-wheeled wagons were used in the Bronze Age Europe, and their form known from excavations suggests that the basic construction techniques of wheel and undercarriage (that survived until the age of the motor car) were established then.The Hungarian coach was highly praised because it was capable of holding 8 men, used light wheels, could be towed by only one horse (it may have been suspended by leather straps, but this is a topic of debate).Henceforth, the Hungarian coach spread across Europe rather quickly, in part due to Ippolito d'Este of Ferrara (1479–1529), nephew of Mathias' queen Beatrix of Aragon, who as a very junior Archbishopric of Esztergom developed a liking of Hungarian riding and took his carriage and driver back to Italy.

Six wheel pageant wagons also represent another innovation in carriages; they were one of the first carriages to use multiple pivotal axles.Another form of carriage was the pageant wagon of the 14th century.Historians debate the structure and size of pageant wagons; however, they are generally miniature house-like structures that rest on four to six wheels depending on the size of the wagon.The pageant wagon is significant because up until the 14th century most carriages were on two or 3 wheels; the chariot, rocking carriage, and baby carriage are two examples of carriages which pre-date the pageant wagon.Historians also debate whether or not pageant wagons were built with pivotal axle systems, which allowed the wheels to turn.
