BMW M3 Sedan (2015): 32 facts and highlights

1. 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.
12l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 5.3l/100 km

2. 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.
6.9l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 4.2l/100 km

3. 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.
550Nm
Tesla Model S P90D (2016): 967Nm

4. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
425hp
Opel VXR8 GTS (2014): 585hp

5. height

1.43m
Audi S4 Premium Plus (2014): 1.41m

6. 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.

7. 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.

8. Has a petrol (gasoline) engine

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.

11. better fuel economy (combined)

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.
8.8l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 4.6l/100 km

12. faster top speed

The fastest speed that the car can reach.
250km/h
Audi RS 7 (2014): 320km/h

13. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
60l
Audi A8 (2014): 90.1l

14. 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).
2.81m
Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014): 3.57m

15. smaller turn radius

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.
12.2m
Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014): 10m

16. weight

1.61t
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.85kg

17. 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.
80467km
Chevrolet SS (2014): 160934km

18. Has dual-clutch transmission

A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is an automated manual transmission that allows the driver to control gear-shifts themselves or to let the computer decide. Upshifts are extremely fast, resulting in smooth acceleration, and due to the uninterrupted power flow it also has the benefit of increasing fuel efficiency.
