Audi A3 1.8 TFSI Sedan (2015) vs Alfa Romeo Giulietta 2.0 JTDM (2014): 23 facts in comparison

1. 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.

2. 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).

Toyota Tundra SR5 (2014): 3.7m
2.63m

3. 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
350Nm

4. 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.

5. larger fuel tank

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

60l

6. 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.

12. 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.

15. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
170hp
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1244hp
168hp

16. 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.

17. 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.

19. Has a petrol (gasoline) engine

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.

22. Has a diesel engine

Improvements in diesel engine technology have lead to vast gains in fuel efficiency over petrol (gasoline) cars (and even hybrids), as well as having lower carbon emissions. It is also safer as it doesn't explode as petrol can.

23. larger engine size

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.
