General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)
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)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)
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 four-wheel drive
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)
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 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.
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.Is an electric car
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)
An electric car runs off a battery that can be recharged at home or at public charging points. Due to the savings costs of electricity compared to petrol (gasoline) it can greatly reduce running costs, and is also better for the environment as the car produces 0 emissions.

Dimensions

1.weight

1.51t

2.11t

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

4.2m

4.98m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
5.wheelbase

2.47m

2.96m

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.top speed

209km/h

249km/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.Has a turbocharged engine
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)
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.
3.horsepower

211hp

532hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
4.Has Stop-Start system
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)
A Stop-Start system automatically turns off the engine when stopping in traffic or at a red light, and seamlessly starts it again when pressure is applied to the accelerator. This saves fuel and is more ecological.

Features

1.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
2.Has regenerative braking
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)
Hybrids and electric cars use regenerative braking, which captures the kinetic energy produced by braking and converts it into electricity. This then charges the battery, effectively increasing the car’s fuel efficiency.
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.
4.Has smart key as standard
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
5.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
6.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)
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.
