General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe 1.8i SE (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 fully independent suspension
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe 1.8i SE (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 rear-wheel drive
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe 1.8i SE (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 Roadster (2015)
Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe 1.8i SE (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.
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.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe 1.8i SE (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

1.15t

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.length

4.2m

4.02m

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

1.36m

1.25m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.

Speed

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

209km/h

195km/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.
2.fuel economy (combined)

10.9l/100 km

7.1l/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 higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
3.horsepower

211hp

126hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
4.fuel economy (city)

12.8l/100 km

9.8l/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)
Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe 1.8i SE (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

5.6l/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

1.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe 1.8i SE (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.
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 height-adjustable seat belts

Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe 1.8i SE (2014)
Height-adjustable seat belts permit passengers of different sizes to move the seat belt up or down for improved comfort. They are also especially useful for increasing the safety of children.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
5.Has in-car system
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe 1.8i SE (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.
