General info

1.Has rear-wheel drive
BMW M3 Sedan (2015)
Porsche Boxster GTS
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 M3 Sedan (2015)
Porsche Boxster GTS
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.drivetrain warranty (years)

4yrs

8yrs

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car, such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft, etc. Typically longer than the basic warranty, it lasts for a certain number of years.
4.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
BMW M3 Sedan (2015)
Porsche Boxster GTS
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.
5.basic warranty (km)

80 467km

80 000km

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
6.turn radius

12.2m

11m

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.

Dimensions

1.height

1.43m

1.27m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
2.width

1.88m

1.96m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
3.ground clearance

119mm

111mm

The ground clearance is the distance between the lowest point of the car and the road surface. A shorter ground clearance lowers a vehicle’s center of gravity - increasing its handling ability and reducing the chance of a rollover. However, a higher ground clearance allows you to go over more uneven terrain.
4.wheelbase

2.81m

2.47m

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).
5.length

4.67m

4.4m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
6.weight

1.61t

1.35t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

Speed

1.coefficient of drag

0.34Cd

0.32Cd

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.
2.top speed

250km/h

280km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
3.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

4.3s

4.6s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.

Engine

1.fuel economy (city)

12l/100 km

12.4l/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.
2.fuel economy (highway)

6.9l/100 km

9.5l/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.
3.horsepower

425hp

330hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
4.maximum torque

550Nm

370Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
5.Has a turbocharged engine
BMW M3 Sedan (2015)
Porsche Boxster GTS
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.
6.number of valves

4

24

An intake valve allows the air/fuel mixture to enter the combustion chamber. An engine with more valves tends to increase performance.

Features

1.Has a rear-view camera
BMW M3 Sedan (2015)
Porsche Boxster GTS
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 in-car system
BMW M3 Sedan (2015)
Porsche Boxster GTS
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
3.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
BMW M3 Sedan (2015)
Porsche Boxster GTS
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
4.Has smart key as standard
BMW M3 Sedan (2015)
Porsche Boxster GTS
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.USB ports

1

1

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
6.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
BMW M3 Sedan (2015)
Porsche Boxster GTS
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
