General info

1.Has front-wheel drive
Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon Luxury (2014)
Vauxhall Astra Design Sports Tourer (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.

2.Has fully independent suspension
Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon Luxury (2014)
Vauxhall Astra Design Sports Tourer (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.

3.Has rear-wheel drive

Vauxhall Astra Design Sports Tourer (2014)

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.

4.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.

5. smaller turn radius

10.8m

11m

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.
