General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
BMW 740Ld xDrive Sedan (2015)
Toyota Camry L (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.

2.Has fully independent suspension
BMW 740Ld xDrive Sedan (2015)
Toyota Camry L (2014)

This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.

3.Has a diesel engine
BMW 740Ld xDrive Sedan (2015)
Toyota Camry L (2014)

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.

4. longer basic warranty (km)

80000km

57936km

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.

5. smaller turn radius

13m

11.2m

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.

Best

4.2m

6.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
BMW 740Ld xDrive Sedan (2015)
Toyota Camry L (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. greater cargo volume

396l

436l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.

2. more headroom (front)

1.04m

986mm

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

5. longer wheelbase

3.21m

2.78m

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).

Toyota Tundra SR5 (2014)

3.7m

6. more headroom (rear)

988mm

968mm

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.

Engine

1. higher maximum torque

413Nm

231Nm

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.

Best

10000Nm

2. better fuel economy (city)

10l/100 km

11.3l/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.

Hennessey Venom GT (2014)

1244hp

5.Has a turbocharged engine
BMW 740Ld xDrive Sedan (2015)
Toyota Camry L (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.

6.Has Stop-Start system
BMW 740Ld xDrive Sedan (2015)
Toyota Camry L (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 a rear-view camera

Toyota Camry L (2014)

A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.

2.Has smart key as standard
BMW 740Ld xDrive Sedan (2015)
Toyota Camry L (2014)

A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.

3.Has in-car system

Toyota Camry L (2014)

An in-car system (eg. Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) gives you extra functionality, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.

4.Has regenerative braking
BMW 740Ld xDrive Sedan (2015)
Toyota Camry L (2014)

Hybrids and electric cars use regenerative braking, which captures the kinetic energy produced by braking and converts it into electricity. This then charges the battery, effectively increasing the car’s fuel efficiency.

5.USB ports
