Audi A3 1.8 TFSI Sedan (2015): 30 facts and highlights

1. better fuel economy (city)

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.
11.8l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 5.3l/100 km

2. higher maximum torque

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful car, and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
271Nm
Tesla Roadster: 10000Nm

3. better fuel economy (highway)

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.
7.8l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 4.2l/100 km

4. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
170hp
Opel VXR8 GTS (2014): 585hp

5. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
348l
Tesla Model S 70 (2016): 894l

6. height

1.42m
Audi S4 Premium Plus (2014): 1.41m

7. more headroom (front)

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
927mm
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.08m

8. Has a turbocharged engine

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.

9. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
50l
Audi A8 (2014): 90.1l

10. weight

1.44t
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.85kg

11. longer wheelbase

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).
2.64m
Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014): 3.57m

12. Has fully independent suspension

This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.

14. longer drivetrain warranty (km)

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft etc. This is usually longer than the basic warranty. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
80467km
Chevrolet SS (2014): 160934km

16. longer basic warranty (km)

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
80467km
Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014): 96561km

17. Has Bluetooth

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows you to easily transfer data between different devices, such as smartphones, tablets and computers.

19. Has dual-clutch transmission

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.

20. more valves

An intake valve allows the air/fuel mixture to enter the combustion chamber. An engine with more valves tends to increase performance.

Rolls-Royce Ghost II (2014): 48

21. smaller turn radius

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.
11m
Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014): 10m

22. better fuel economy (combined)

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.
10.1l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 4.6l/100 km

23. more headroom (rear)

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.
917mm
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.05m

24. Has front-wheel drive

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.
