BMW M6 Gran Coupe (2014) review: 32 facts and highlights

1. larger engine size

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
4.4l
Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe (2014): 6.7l

2. height

1.39m
Scion FR-S (2014): 1.28m

3. 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.

4. 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.

6. 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 Coupe (2014): 3.32m

7. 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 Camaro Coupe 1LS (2014): 160934km

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.

9. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
560hp
Rolls-Royce Wraith Coupe (2014): 624hp

10. 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.
681Nm
Rolls-Royce Wraith Coupe (2014): 800Nm

11. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
80l
Rolls-Royce Wraith Coupe (2014): 100l

12. 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.
18.8l/100 km
MINI Cooper Coupe (2014): 6.9l/100 km

13. 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.
12.8l/100 km
MINI Cooper Coupe (2014): 4.1l/100 km

14. more valves

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

16. shorter length

5.01m
MINI Cooper Coupe (2014): 3.73m

17. more cylinders

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.
