Maserati Quattroporte S (2014) review: 28 facts and highlights

1. 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.
550Nm
Tesla Roadster: 10000Nm

2. 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.

15.3l/100 km
Honda Clarity Electric (2017): 1.87l/100 km

4. better fuel economy (highway)

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.
7.07l/100 km
Honda Clarity Electric (2017): 2.28l/100 km

5. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
410hp
Opel VXR8 GTS (2014): 585hp

7. 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.
