General info

1.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
McLaren 650S
Rolls-Royce Phantom (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.
2.Has dual-clutch transmission
McLaren 650S
Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014)
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.
3.Has fully independent suspension
McLaren 650S
Rolls-Royce Phantom (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.
4.Has rear-wheel drive
McLaren 650S
Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014)
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.CO2 emissions

275g/km

347g/km

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

Dimensions

1.height

1.2m

1.64m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
2.length

4.51m

5.84m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
3.weight

1.33t

2.65t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.width

2.09m

1.99m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.wheelbase

2.67m

3.57m

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).
6.Has vertically-opening doors
McLaren 650S
Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014)
Vertically-opening doors are useful for when parking in tight spaces, and are aesthetically pleasing.

Speed

1.top speed

333km/h

240km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
2.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

3s

5.9s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.

Engine

1.maximum torque

678Nm

720Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
2.engine size

3.8l

6.7l

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.
3.horsepower

641hp

453hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
4.number of cylinders

8

12

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.
5.fuel economy (highway)

8.5l/100 km

10.2l/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.
6.Has a turbocharged engine
McLaren 650S
Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014)
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.

Features

1.Has in-car system
McLaren 650S
Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014)
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
2.Has a rear-view camera
McLaren 650S
Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014)
A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.
3.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
McLaren 650S
Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014)
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
4.USB ports
