BMW Z4 Roadster sDrive35i (2014) vs Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet (2014): 32 facts in comparison

1. 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.

Nissan Note Advance CVT (2015): 1.5kg
2.01t

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.

Ferrari 458 Spider (2013): 0l/100 km
10.7l/100 km

4. 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.

6. lower coefficient of drag

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 economy.

7. Has rear-wheel drive

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.

9. shorter length

590mm shorter length.
4.24m
Renault Twizy EV 13kW (2014): 2.34m
4.83m

10. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
55l
Ford Super Duty F-250 XL (2015): 132l
82l

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).
2.5m
Toyota Tundra SR5 (2014): 3.7m
2.82m

12. more valves

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

13. 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.

14. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
306hp
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1244hp
265hp

15. 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.
400Nm
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 1250Nm
336Nm

16. 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.

18. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
227l
Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet (2014): 3448l
3448l

19. Has fully independent suspension

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

20. longer basic warranty (years)

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.
4yrs
Nissan Versa Note S (2014): Unlimited yrs
3yrs

21. longer drivetrain warranty (years)

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.

Kia Rondo Platinum (2014): 12yrs
5yrs

22. Has smart key as standard

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.
