General info

1.Has front-wheel drive
Fiat Qubo 1.4 (2014)
SEAT Altea 1.6 TDI (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. smaller turn radius

11m

10.7m

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.

Best

4.2m

3.Has fully independent suspension

SEAT Altea 1.6 TDI (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.

4. less CO2 emissions

152g/km

119g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.

6.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Fiat Qubo 1.4 (2014)
SEAT Altea 1.6 TDI (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.
