General info

1.Has front-wheel drive
Honda Insight (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
Honda Insight (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.Is a hybrid car
Honda Insight (2014)
Volkswagen Golf GTI (2015)

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.

6.Has a turbocharged engine
Honda Insight (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.
