2. higher maximum torque

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful car, and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
413Nm
Tesla Roadster: 10000Nm
300Nm

3. better fuel economy (city)

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.

Honda Clarity Electric (2017): 1.87l/100 km
1.87l/100 km

4. Has four-wheel drive

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.

7. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
255hp
Opel VXR8 GTS (2014): 585hp
161hp

8. Has a turbocharged engine

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.

9. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
396l
Tesla Model S 70 (2016): 894l
405l

10. Is an electric car

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.

19. longer basic warranty (km)

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.
80000km
Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014): 96561km
60000km

20. longer wheelbase

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).
3.21m
Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014): 3.57m
2.75m

21. Has Bluetooth

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows you to easily transfer data between different devices, such as smartphones, tablets and computers.

22. smaller turn radius

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.
13m
Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014): 10m
11.7m

23. more headroom (rear)

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.
988mm
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.05m
942.3mm

24. longer drivetrain warranty (km)

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft etc. This is usually longer than the basic warranty. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
