26 facts in comparison
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
