Simple garage sub panel question

When putting a sub-panel in an attached garage should you use an indoor panel or an outdoor panel? or does it even matter?

The inside of a garage is an indoor location.

Thinking back on it, I didn't exactly word it correctly. Just for clarification, it's OK to install an outdoor panel indoors. Obviously, it's not OK to do the opposite.

Yes, you can put an outdoor-rated panel indoors. In fact, you might want to if you intend to do power washing in the garage or something like that.
