Top specs, facts and figures

General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
BMW X3 xDrive35i (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. smaller turn radius

11.9m

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.

3. longer drivetrain warranty (years)

4yrs

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.

Best

Mitsubishi Pajero (2017)

10yrs

4.Has fully independent suspension
BMW X3 xDrive35i (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.

5. longer basic warranty (years)

4yrs

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.

2. greater cargo volume (seats down)

1600l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things. With some vehicles you can put the rear seats down in order to gain more space for cargo.

4. longer wheelbase

2.81m

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).

Best

Lamborghini Urus (2019)

850Nm

4.Has a turbocharged engine
BMW X3 xDrive35i (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.

5. more horsepower

300hp

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