4yrs
Ferrari California T (2014): 7yrs

11. 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.
20.2l/100 km
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015): 3.1l/100 km

12. 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.

13. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
80l
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 100l

14. 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.
11.8m
Smart Passion Cabriolet (2014): 8.4m

15. 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).
2.47m
Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe (2014): 3.32m

16. 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.
4.2l
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 8l

17. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
430hp
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 1001hp

18. 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.
430Nm
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 1250Nm

19. shorter length

4.43m
Smart Passion Cabriolet (2014): 2.65m

20. 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.

23. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
99l
Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet (2014): 3448l

24. more valves

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