Top specs, facts and figures

General info

1.Has fully independent suspension
Ford C-MAX Hybrid (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 a petrol (gasoline) engine
Ford C-MAX Hybrid (2014)
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.

3.Has front-wheel drive
Ford C-MAX Hybrid (2014)
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.

4.Is a hybrid car
Ford C-MAX Hybrid (2014)
Opel Zafira Family 1.7CDTi (2014)

Hybrid cars run on a mixture of petrol (gasoline) and electric power. They offer several benefits over traditional petrol-powered cars. For example they produce less CO2 emissions, and due to their fuel efficiency they are often cheaper to run.

5.Has a diesel engine
Ford C-MAX Hybrid (2014)
Opel Zafira Family 1.7CDTi (2014)

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.
