General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
?

A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is an automated manual transmission that allows the driver to control gear-shifts themselves or to let the computer decide. Upshifts are extremely fast, resulting in smooth acceleration, and due to the uninterrupted power flow it also has the benefit of increasing fuel efficiency.

2.Has fully independent suspension
?

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.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
?

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.

4.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.

5. less CO2 emissions
?

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.

6. smaller turn radius
?

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.
