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
413Nm

3. 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
Honda Clarity Electric (2017): 1.87l/100 km
10l/100 km

4. Has four-wheel drive

Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.

7. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
170hp
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1244hp
255hp

8. greater cargo volume

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