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

1.43m

1.7m

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

1.81m

1.89m

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

2.81m

2.76m

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).
5.maximum headroom (front)

1.03m

993mm

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
6.maximum headroom (rear)
