What's the difference between an autovia and a autopista?

May be I was wrong, autovia is a 4 lane highway and autopista is a freeway.

Autovía is a word that I borrowed from other countries, in México we just call'em 4 -or more- lane road (carreteras de 4 carriles). These roads may have road crosses at the same level, u-turns at same level, direct access to gas stations, factories, farms, barns, etc. They can be as lonely that they look like freeways and have an excellent speed standard or as crowded that are not good.

Autopista, is a 4 lane freeway. road crosses and/or u-turns are on different level, the access to gas stations, factories, farms, etc. Must be through a separated- divided lane that may allow you to accelerate or slow down away from the freeway.

These pics may explain it although they are in spanish

The 3 first pics are autopistas, and the last 2 are the autovias that I put on the map

Puebla

Back in 2015, three 'inverted trumpet interchanges' on the Puebla Periférico were converted to an oval roundabout-style interchange.

These inverted trumpets are extremely rare, there are maybe less than 10 of those across the world, with Puebla having three of them.

A section of the Autopista México - Acapulco has collapsed in today's earthquake. I confirmed this location on Street View, it's just south of Cuernavaca.

Honestly I don't understand about that kind of interchanges.
