General info

1.Has front-wheel drive
Fiat Qubo 1.4 (2014)
Volkswagen Golf GTI (2015)

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
Fiat Qubo 1.4 (2014)
Volkswagen Golf GTI (2015)

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 a petrol (gasoline) engine
Fiat Qubo 1.4 (2014)
Volkswagen Golf GTI (2015)

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.

6.Has a turbocharged engine
Fiat Qubo 1.4 (2014)
Volkswagen Golf GTI (2015)

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.
