Top specs, facts and figures

General info

1.Has rear-wheel drive
Mercedes-Benz E250 BlueTEC Sedan (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.

2.Has fully independent suspension
Mercedes-Benz E250 BlueTEC Sedan (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 a diesel engine
Mercedes-Benz E250 BlueTEC Sedan (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.

4. longer basic warranty (km)

80467km

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.

Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014)

96561km

5. longer drivetrain warranty (km)

80467km

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

Chevrolet SS (2014)

160934km

6. smaller turn radius

11.2m

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.

6. longer wheelbase

2.88m

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

Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014)

Speed

1. lower coefficient of drag

0.28Cd

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 consumption.

Best

Toyota Prius (2017)

0.24Cd

Engine

1. higher maximum torque

500Nm

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

10000Nm

2. better fuel economy (city)

10.1l/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.

Best

Opel VXR8 GTS (2014)

585hp

5.Has a turbocharged engine
Mercedes-Benz E250 BlueTEC Sedan (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.

6. more valves

16

An intake valve allows the air/fuel mixture to enter the combustion chamber. An engine with more valves tends to increase performance.
