General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet 1.2 TSI (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 four-wheel drive
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet 1.2 TSI (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.
3.Has front-wheel drive
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet 1.2 TSI (2014)
Front-wheel drive is the most common type of drivetrain and offers several advantages. It is cheaper to manufacture (reducing the cost of the vehicle) and also lighter which helps improve fuel economy. Due to having the weight of the engine over the drive wheels it also benefits from increased traction.
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.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet 1.2 TSI (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

1.45t

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.height

1.36m

1.47m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
5.wheelbase

2.47m

2.54m

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).
6.length

4.2m

4.28m

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

Speed

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.horsepower

211hp

104hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
2.Has a turbocharged engine
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet 1.2 TSI (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.
A larger fuel tank is an advantage because you have to stop to refill less often.
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.
5.Has Stop-Start system
Audi TT Roadster (2015)
Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet 1.2 TSI (2014)
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)
Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet 1.2 TSI (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.
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.
