General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
BMW 4 Series Convertible 420d (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.
2.Has rear-wheel drive
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
BMW 4 Series Convertible 420d (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.
3.Has four-wheel drive
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
BMW 4 Series Convertible 420d (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.
4.Has a diesel engine
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
BMW 4 Series Convertible 420d (2014)
Improvements in diesel engine technology have lead to vast gains in fuel efficiency over petrol (gasoline) cars (and even hybrids), as well as having lower carbon emissions. It is also safer as it doesn't explode as petrol can.
5.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
BMW 4 Series Convertible 420d (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.

Dimensions

1.weight

1.51t

1.75t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.wheelbase

2.47m

2.81m

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).
3.length

4.2m

4.64m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
4.height

1.36m

1.38m

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

Speed

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

209km/h

235km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.

Engine

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.
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.
3.fuel economy (combined)

10.9l/100 km

5.2l/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 higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
4.fuel economy (city)

12.8l/100 km

6.1l/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.
5.Has a turbocharged engine
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
BMW 4 Series Convertible 420d (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 economy (highway)

9.1l/100 km

4.6l/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.

Features

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six, but some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags, and side curtain airbags.
3.Has in-car system
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
BMW 4 Series Convertible 420d (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.
