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.Has a diesel engine

Improvements in diesel engine technology have lead to vast gains in fuel efficiency over petrol (gasoline) cars (and even hybrids), as well as having lower carbon emissions. It is also safer as it doesn't explode as petrol can.
3.CO2 emissions

135g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.

Dimensions

1.weight

1.75t

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

2.81m

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

4.64m

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

1.38m

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

2.02m

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

Speed

1.top speed

235km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
2.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

8s

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

Engine

1.maximum torque

380Nm

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.number of cylinders

4

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.
3.fuel economy (highway)

4.6l/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.
4.fuel economy (city)

6.1l/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 lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
5.horsepower

184hp

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

5.2l/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.

Features

1.USB ports

1

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
2.Has in-car system
