General info

1. smaller turn radius

11.8m

12m

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.

Best

Scion iQ2 (2014)

4.2m

2. longer drivetrain warranty (years)

6yrs

4yrs

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.

Best

Kia Rondo Platinum (2014)

12yrs

3. longer basic warranty (years)

4yrs

4yrs

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.

4.Has front-wheel drive
Lexus RX 350 (2015)
Volvo XC90 (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.

5.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Lexus RX 350 (2015)
Volvo XC90 (2015)

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 fully independent suspension
Lexus RX 350 (2015)
Volvo XC90 (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.

2. greater cargo volume (seats down)

2272l

2639l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things. With some vehicles you can put the rear seats down in order to gain more space for cargo.

5. longer wheelbase

2.74m

2.86m

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).

Best

Toyota Tundra SR5 (2014)

6. more headroom (front)

992mm

975mm

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.

Speed

1. lower coefficient of drag

0.33Cd

0.36Cd

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel economy.

Engine

1. larger fuel tank

72.5l

80l

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.

2. better fuel economy (city)

15.7l/100 km

15l/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.

3.Has a turbocharged engine
Lexus RX 350 (2015)
Volvo XC90 (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.

4. higher maximum torque

336Nm

236Nm

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.

Best

Lamborghini Urus (2019)

850Nm

5. larger engine size

3.5l

3.2l

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
