General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013)
Porsche Boxster GTS
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.
2.Has fully independent suspension
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013)
Porsche Boxster GTS
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
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013)
Porsche Boxster GTS
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.CO2 emissions

275g/km

211g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
5.basic warranty (years)

2yrs

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.
6.drivetrain warranty (years)

2yrs

8yrs

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car, such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft, etc. Typically longer than the basic warranty, it lasts for a certain number of years.

Dimensions

1.weight

1.53t

1.35t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.length

4.53m

4.4m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
3.cargo volume

230l

275l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
4.width

1.94m

1.96m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.Has vertically-opening doors
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013)
Porsche Boxster GTS
Vertically-opening doors are useful for when parking in tight spaces, and are aesthetically pleasing.
6.height

1.21m

1.27m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Speed

1.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

3.4s

4.6s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
2.top speed

320km/h

280km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.

Engine

1.maximum torque

542Nm

370Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
2.fuel economy (highway)

0l/100 km

9.5l/100 km

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.
3.fuel economy (combined)

11.8l/100 km

10.7l/100 km

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.
4.fuel economy (city)

0l/100 km

12.4l/100 km

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.
5.horsepower

570hp

330hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
6.Has a turbocharged engine
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013)
Porsche Boxster GTS
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.

Features

1.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013)
Porsche Boxster GTS
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
2.number of airbags

4

4

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six, but some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags, and side curtain airbags.
3.Has smart key as standard
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013)
Porsche Boxster GTS
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.
4.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013)
Porsche Boxster GTS
Height-adjustable seat belts permit passengers of different sizes to move the seat belt up or down for improved comfort. They are also especially useful for increasing the safety of children.
5.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013)
Porsche Boxster GTS
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
6.Has a rear-view camera
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013)
Porsche Boxster GTS
A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.
