General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
BMW X1 xDrive28i (2014)
Renault Captur Dynamique MediaNav TCe 120 Auto EDC (2014)

Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.

2.Has front-wheel drive
BMW X1 xDrive28i (2014)
Renault Captur Dynamique MediaNav TCe 120 Auto EDC (2014)

Front-wheel drive is the most common type of drivetrain and offers several advantages. It is cheaper to manufacture (reducing the cost of the vehicle) and also lighter which helps improve fuel economy. Due to having the weight of the engine over the drive wheels it also benefits from increased traction.

3.Has fully independent suspension
BMW X1 xDrive28i (2014)
Renault Captur Dynamique MediaNav TCe 120 Auto EDC (2014)

This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.

4.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
BMW X1 xDrive28i (2014)
Renault Captur Dynamique MediaNav TCe 120 Auto EDC (2014)

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.Has dual-clutch transmission
BMW X1 xDrive28i (2014)
Renault Captur Dynamique MediaNav TCe 120 Auto EDC (2014)

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.

Engine

1. better fuel economy (city)

12.8l/100 km

6.6l/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.

Best

Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014)

3l/100 km

2.Has a turbocharged engine
BMW X1 xDrive28i (2014)
Renault Captur Dynamique MediaNav TCe 120 Auto EDC (2014)

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.

3. higher maximum torque

353Nm

190Nm

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.

1.2l

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.
