Actually the type of wire you want to use in a car solid. The resistance of a wire is rho * (length/area) where rho is resistivity. In a DC case (as in a car) the more area you have the less resistance. More strands will help in the case of an AC circuit because current flow there is higher with surface area, not cross-sectional area. There is no AC circuits in you car, so you do not need to use stranded. But it is much easier to work with, I can tell you that.
