General info

1.Has rear-wheel drive
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
Infiniti Q70 3.7 (2014)

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 fully independent suspension
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
Infiniti Q70 3.7 (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 petrol (gasoline) engine
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
Infiniti Q70 3.7 (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.

4.Is a hybrid car
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
Infiniti Q70 3.7 (2014)

Hybrid cars run on a mixture of petrol (gasoline) and electric power. They offer several benefits over traditional petrol-powered cars. For example they produce less CO2 emissions, and due to their fuel efficiency they are often cheaper to run.

5. smaller turn radius

12m

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.

4.2m

6.Has air suspension
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
Infiniti Q70 3.7 (2014)

Air suspension offers a smoother ride than the traditional steel spring suspension. It is also often adjustable, allowing you to raise or lower it based on the type of driving you are doing.

Speed

1. lower coefficient of drag

0.27Cd

0.27Cd

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.

Engine

1. higher maximum torque

330Nm

366Nm

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

Tesla Roadster

10000Nm

2. better fuel economy (city)

10.2l/100 km

15.7l/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.Has Stop-Start system
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
Infiniti Q70 3.7 (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.

6.Has a turbocharged engine
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
Infiniti Q70 3.7 (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.

Features

1.Has a rear-view camera
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
Infiniti Q70 3.7 (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 ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
Infiniti Q70 3.7 (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 regenerative braking
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
Infiniti Q70 3.7 (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.

4.Has in-car system
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
Infiniti Q70 3.7 (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.

5.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
BMW ActiveHybrid 5 (2014)
Infiniti Q70 3.7 (2014)

The vehicle has a tracking system that utilises GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.

6.USB ports
