1.Has four-wheel drive
Audi SQ5 Premium Plus (2014)
Subaru XV Crosstrek 2.0i Premium (2014)

2. longer drivetrain warranty (years)

4yrs

5yrs

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.

12yrs

3. smaller turn radius

11.6m

10.6m

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.

4. longer basic warranty (years)

4yrs

3yrs

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.

6. longer drivetrain warranty (km)

80000km

3. better fuel economy (city)

14.7l/100 km
