General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Alfa Romeo 4C
Peugeot RCZ R (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
Peugeot RCZ R (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
Peugeot RCZ R (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
Peugeot RCZ R (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.CO2 emissions

157g/km

145g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
6.Has front-wheel drive
Alfa Romeo 4C
Peugeot RCZ R (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

1.36m

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

3.99m

4.29m

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

2.09m

2.11m

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

895kg

1.35t

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

309l

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

2.38m

2.6m

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).

Speed

1.top speed

258km/h

249km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
2.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

4.5s

5.9s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.

Engine

1.maximum torque

350Nm

247Nm

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

1.6l

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

270hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
4.fuel economy (highway)

5l/100 km

5.1l/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.
5.Has a turbocharged engine
Alfa Romeo 4C
Peugeot RCZ R (2014)
A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.
6.fuel economy (city)

9.8l/100 km

8.4l/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.

Features

1.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Alfa Romeo 4C
Peugeot RCZ R (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.
2.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Alfa Romeo 4C
Peugeot RCZ R (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.
3.USB ports

0

1

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
