2. higher maximum torque

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.
251Nm
Tesla Roadster: 10000Nm
413Nm

3. better fuel economy (city)

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.
13.5l/100 km
Honda Clarity Electric (2017): 1.87l/100 km
10l/100 km

4. Has four-wheel drive

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.

7. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
204hp
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1244hp
255hp

8. Has regenerative braking

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.

10. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
391l
Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet (2014): 3448l
396l

11. Has a turbocharged engine

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.

12. Has rear-wheel drive

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.

80467km
Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014): 96561km
80000km

20. longer drivetrain warranty (km)

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft etc. This is usually longer than the basic warranty. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
