General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
Audi A8 (2014)
Subaru Impreza 4-Door 2.0i (2014)

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.

2.Has fully independent suspension
Audi A8 (2014)
Subaru Impreza 4-Door 2.0i (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. longer basic warranty (km)

80000km

57936km

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.

Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014)

96561km

4. smaller turn radius

12.3m

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.

5.Has dual-clutch transmission
Audi A8 (2014)
Subaru Impreza 4-Door 2.0i (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.

6.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Audi A8 (2014)
Subaru Impreza 4-Door 2.0i (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.

2. better fuel economy (city)

13l/100 km

11l/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.

147hp

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

Best

Hennessey Venom GT (2014)

1244hp

5.Has Stop-Start system
Audi A8 (2014)
Subaru Impreza 4-Door 2.0i (2014)

A Stop-Start system automatically turns off the engine when stopping in traffic or at a red light, and seamlessly starts it again when pressure is applied to the accelerator. This saves fuel and is more ecological.

6.Has a turbocharged engine
Audi A8 (2014)
Subaru Impreza 4-Door 2.0i (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.

Features

1.Has a rear-view camera
Audi A8 (2014)
Subaru Impreza 4-Door 2.0i (2014)

A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.

2.Has smart key as standard
Audi A8 (2014)
Subaru Impreza 4-Door 2.0i (2014)

A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.

3.Has in-car system
Audi A8 (2014)
Subaru Impreza 4-Door 2.0i (2014)

An in-car system (eg. Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) gives you extra functionality, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.

4.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
Audi A8 (2014)
