General info
Rear-wheel driveRear-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.

Four-wheel driveFour-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.

Dual-clutch transmissionA 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.

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

Air suspensionAir suspension offers a smoother ride than the traditional steel spring suspension. It is also often adjustable, allowing you to raise or lower it based on the type of driving you are doing.

Coefficient of dragThe 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 consumption.

Turbocharged engineA 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.

Fuel economy (combined)Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
