2. 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.
14l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 5.3l/100 km

3. 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.

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

4. 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.
680Nm
Tesla Roadster: 10000Nm

5. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
552hp
Opel VXR8 GTS (2014): 585hp

6. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
396l
Tesla Model S 70 (2016): 894l

7. 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.

Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.08m

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.

11. 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).
2.96m
Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014): 3.57m

12. Has Stop-Start system

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.

80467km
Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014): 96561km

16. 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

17. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
80l
Audi A8 (2014): 90.1l

18. 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.
