Car dealerships, museums, garages ... several reasons for why a car would be indoors

How would you say 'I see inside a car'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Presetview

Belelátok egy autóba.

Why can't I say I see an auto inside? It is marked incorrect.

I don't know of any dialect of English where a car is called "an auto".

Where I come from, we don't use that word for car. It would be an "automobile." And anyway, I think that's a different word.

This sentence would be much easier if it were more realistic like 'I see a car outside' or I see a boy inside

A semantically unrealistic sentence can test how much we are relying on real world knowledge instead of knowledge of the language.

Some garages have windows ...

Is it I or the car that is inside?
