General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
Jaguar XJ (2014)
Kia Cadenza Premium (2014)

Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.

2.Has rear-wheel drive
Jaguar XJ (2014)
Kia Cadenza Premium (2014)

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.

3.Has fully independent suspension
Jaguar XJ (2014)
Kia Cadenza Premium (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. smaller turn radius

12.3m

11.1m

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.

5.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Jaguar XJ (2014)
Kia Cadenza Premium (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.

6.Has front-wheel drive
Jaguar XJ (2014)
Kia Cadenza Premium (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. longer wheelbase

3.16m

2.85m

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).

2. better fuel economy (city)

12l/100 km

14.9l/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.Has a turbocharged engine
Jaguar XJ (2014)
Kia Cadenza Premium (2014)

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.

6. more valves

24

24

An intake valve allows the air/fuel mixture to enter the combustion chamber. An engine with more valves tends to increase performance.

Features

1.Has a rear-view camera
Jaguar XJ (2014)
Kia Cadenza Premium (2014)

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.

2.Has smart key as standard
Jaguar XJ (2014)
Kia Cadenza Premium (2014)

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.

3.Has in-car system
Jaguar XJ (2014)
Kia Cadenza Premium (2014)

An in-car system (eg. Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) gives you extra functionality, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.

4.Has Bluetooth
