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

2. longer drivetrain warranty (km)

80467km

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.

3. longer basic warranty (km)

80467km

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.

Best

Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014)

96561km

4. smaller turn radius

11m

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.

Best

Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014)

10m

5.Has dual-clutch transmission
Audi A3 1.8 TFSI Sedan (2015)

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.

6.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Audi A3 1.8 TFSI Sedan (2015)

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.

Speed

1. lower coefficient of drag

0.3Cd

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel economy.

Best

Engine

1. better fuel economy (city)

11.8l/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.

Best

Honda Clarity Electric (2017)

1.87l/100 km

2. higher maximum torque

271Nm

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.

Best

Tesla Roadster

10000Nm

3. better fuel economy (highway)

7.8l/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.

Best

Honda Clarity Electric (2017)

4. more horsepower

170hp

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

Best

Opel VXR8 GTS (2014)

585hp

5.Has a turbocharged engine
Audi A3 1.8 TFSI Sedan (2015)

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. larger fuel tank

50l

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
