General info

1.Has rear-wheel drive
BMW 1 Series Convertible 118i (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.
2.CO2 emissions

152g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
3.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine

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

1.5t

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

2.66m

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

4.36m

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

1.92m

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

1.41m

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

Speed

1.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

9.3s

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

210km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.

Engine

1.maximum torque

190Nm

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.horsepower

143hp

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

6.5l/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.Has a turbocharged engine
BMW 1 Series Convertible 118i (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.
5.fuel economy (city)

8.4l/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.
6.fuel economy (highway)

5.4l/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 in-car system
BMW 1 Series Convertible 118i (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.USB ports

1

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
3.number of airbags

4

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.
