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.
330Nm
Tesla Roadster: 10000Nm
366Nm

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.
10.2l/100 km
Honda Clarity Electric (2017): 1.87l/100 km
15.7l/100 km

4. Has smart key as standard

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.

5. better fuel economy (highway)

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.
7.8l/100 km
Honda Clarity Electric (2017): 2.28l/100 km

6. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
335hp
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1244hp
330hp

7. Has rear-wheel drive

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.

8. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
283l
Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet (2014): 3448l
422l

9. 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.
