General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
Kia Cadenza Premium (2014)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)

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.Is an electric car
Kia Cadenza Premium (2014)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)

An electric car runs off a battery that can be recharged at home or at public charging points. Due to the savings costs of electricity compared to petrol (gasoline) it can greatly reduce running costs, and is also better for the environment as the car produces 0 emissions.

3.Has fully independent suspension
Kia Cadenza Premium (2014)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)

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

11.1m

11.3m

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
Kia Cadenza Premium (2014)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)

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
Kia Cadenza Premium (2014)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)

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.

Dimensions

1. greater cargo volume

450l

894l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.

3. more headroom (rear)

960mm

897mm

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.

Engine

1. higher maximum torque

346Nm

967Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful car, and is also a good indication of its acceleration.

3.Has Stop-Start system
Kia Cadenza Premium (2014)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)

A Stop-Start system automatically turns off the engine when stopping in traffic or at a red light, and seamlessly starts it again when pressure is applied to the accelerator. This saves fuel and is more ecological.

Features

1.Has a rear-view camera
Kia Cadenza Premium (2014)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)

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
Kia Cadenza Premium (2014)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)

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
Kia Cadenza Premium (2014)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)

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 regenerative braking
Kia Cadenza Premium (2014)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)

Hybrids and electric cars use regenerative braking, which captures the kinetic energy produced by braking and converts it into electricity. This then charges the battery, effectively increasing the car’s fuel efficiency.

5.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
Kia Cadenza Premium (2014)
Tesla Model S P90D (2016)

The vehicle has a tracking system that utilises GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.

6.USB ports
