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
172Nm

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
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013): 0l/100 km
8.1l/100 km

4. 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
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013): 0l/100 km
6.7l/100 km

5. 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.

6. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
335hp
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1244hp
122hp

7. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
283l
Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet (2014): 3448l
323l

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.

16. more headroom (front)

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
1.03m
Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ (2014): 1.09m
1.08m

17. 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).
2.97m
Toyota Tundra SR5 (2014): 3.7m
2.53m

18. 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.
50000km
Citroen C5 Tourer VTR Techno Pack (2014): Unlimited km
100000km

19. Is a hybrid car

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.
