General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Alfa Romeo 4C
Ford Focus ST (2014)
A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is an automated manual transmission that allows the driver to control gear-shifts themselves or to let the computer decide. Upshifts are extremely fast, resulting in smooth acceleration, and due to the uninterrupted power flow it also has the benefit of increasing fuel efficiency.
2.Has fully independent suspension
Alfa Romeo 4C
Ford Focus ST (2014)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
3.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Alfa Romeo 4C
Ford Focus ST (2014)
A petrol (gasoline) engine offers several advantages over diesel. For example the engines tend to be lighter and cheaper than their diesel counterparts. Petrol engines also tend to have higher horsepower, and the fuel is more readily available.
4.Has rear-wheel drive
Alfa Romeo 4C
Ford Focus ST (2014)
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.
5.Has air suspension
Alfa Romeo 4C
Ford Focus ST (2014)
Air suspension offers a smoother ride than the traditional steel spring suspension. It is also often adjustable, allowing you to raise or lower it based on the type of driving you are doing.
6.Has front-wheel drive
Alfa Romeo 4C
Ford Focus ST (2014)
Front-wheel drive is the most common type of drivetrain and offers several advantages. It is cheaper to manufacture (reducing the cost of the vehicle) and also lighter which helps improve fuel economy. Due to having the weight of the engine over the drive wheels it also benefits from increased traction.

Dimensions

1.height

1.18m

1.47m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
2.length

3.99m

4.34m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
3.width

2.09m

2.04m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.weight

895kg

1.46t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
5.cargo volume

110l

674l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
6.wheelbase

2.38m

2.65m

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).

Engine

1.maximum torque

350Nm

366Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
2.engine size

1.75l

2l

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
3.horsepower

240hp

252hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
4.number of cylinders

4

4

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.
5.fuel economy (highway)

5l/100 km

7.4l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
6.fuel economy (city)

9.8l/100 km

10.2l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.

Features

1.Has a rear-view camera
Alfa Romeo 4C
Ford Focus ST (2014)
A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.
2.Has smart key as standard
Alfa Romeo 4C
Ford Focus ST (2014)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
3.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Alfa Romeo 4C
Ford Focus ST (2014)
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
4.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Alfa Romeo 4C
Ford Focus ST (2014)
Height-adjustable seat belts permit passengers of different sizes to move the seat belt up or down for improved comfort. They are also especially useful for increasing the safety of children.
5.USB ports

0

2

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
6.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
Alfa Romeo 4C
Ford Focus ST (2014)
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
