The C-pillar is a pillar that supports the back window and the rear part of a vehicle’s roof. From the point of view of nomenclature, even if there appears to be no B-pillar between the front and rear doors of a car, the rearmost pillar is generally labeled C. On a vehicle such as an SUV or MPV, with three windows along the side, the C-pillar is the third (rear door) pillar and the rearmost pillar is the D-pillar.
