General info

1.Has fully independent suspension
Dodge Grand Caravan SXT (2014)
Opel Zafira Family 1.7CDTi (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.

2.Has front-wheel drive

Opel Zafira Family 1.7CDTi (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 a petrol (gasoline) engine

Opel Zafira Family 1.7CDTi (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.

4.Has a diesel engine

Improvements in diesel engine technology have lead to vast gains in fuel efficiency over petrol (gasoline) cars (and even hybrids), as well as having lower carbon emissions. It is also safer as it doesn't explode as petrol can.
