General info

1.Has air suspension
Mazda Mazda 5 Sport (2014)
Opel Zafira Family 1.7CDTi (2014)

Air suspension offers a smoother ride than the traditional steel spring suspension. It is also often adjustable, allowing you to raise or lower it based on the type of driving you are doing.

2.Has fully independent suspension
Mazda Mazda 5 Sport (2014)
Opel Zafira Family 1.7CDTi (2014)

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 front-wheel drive

Opel Zafira Family 1.7CDTi (2014)

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.

4.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Mazda Mazda 5 Sport (2014)
Opel Zafira Family 1.7CDTi (2014)

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.

5.Has a diesel engine

Opel Zafira Family 1.7CDTi (2014)

Improvements in diesel engine technology have lead to vast gains in fuel efficiency over petrol (gasoline) cars (and even hybrids), as well as having lower carbon emissions. It is also safer as it doesn't explode as petrol can.
