General info

1.Has fully independent suspension
Audi TT (2014)
Lotus Elise (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.
2.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Audi TT (2014)
Lotus Elise (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.
3.Has rear-wheel drive
Audi TT (2014)
Lotus Elise (2014)
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.
4.Has four-wheel drive
Audi TT (2014)
Lotus Elise (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.
5.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.drivetrain warranty (years)

4yrs

3yrs

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car, such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft, etc. Typically longer than the basic warranty, it lasts for a certain number of years.

Dimensions

1.height

1.35m

1.12m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
2.length

4.2m

3.82m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
3.width

1.84m

1.72m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.wheelbase

2.47m

2.3m

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).

Speed

1.coefficient of drag

0.3Cd

0.41Cd

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 consumption.

Engine

1.maximum torque

350Nm

160Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
2.engine size

2l

1.6l

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.
3.horsepower

211hp

134hp

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

4

4

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.
5.Has a turbocharged engine
Audi TT (2014)
Lotus Elise (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.fuel tank capacity

59.8l

40l

A larger fuel tank is an advantage because you have to stop to refill less often.

Features

1.Has in-car system
Audi TT (2014)
Lotus Elise (2014)
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
2.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Audi TT (2014)
Lotus Elise (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.
3.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
Audi TT (2014)
Lotus Elise (2014)
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
