General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
Audi RS 7 (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 RS 7 (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.Has dual-clutch transmission
Audi RS 7 (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.

4. smaller turn radius

11.9m

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. longer basic warranty (km)

80000km

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

6. longer drivetrain warranty (km)

80000km

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.

Dimensions

1. greater cargo volume

694l

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

Best

Tesla Model S 70 (2016)

894l

2. more headroom (front)

937mm

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.

Best

Volkswagen Jetta (2014)

1.08m

3. more headroom (rear)

930mm

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.

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

Toyota Prius (2017)

0.24Cd

2. faster top speed

320km/h

The fastest speed that the car can reach.

Best

Tesla Roadster

402.3km/h

3. faster acceleration (0-100)

3.5s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.

Engine

1. higher maximum torque

516Nm

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

2. better fuel economy (city)

14.7l/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.

Honda Clarity Electric (2017)

1.87l/100 km

3. better fuel economy (highway)

8.7l/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.

4. more horsepower

560hp

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 RS 7 (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.

6. more valves

32

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

Features

1.Has a rear-view camera
Audi RS 7 (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 in-car system
Audi RS 7 (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.

3.Has Bluetooth
Audi RS 7 (2014)

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows you to easily transfer data between different devices, such as smartphones, tablets and computers.

4.USB ports

1

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.

5.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Audi RS 7 (2014)

ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.

6. more airbags

6

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six as some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags and side curtain airbags.
