Top specs, facts and figures

General info

1.Has fully independent suspension
Mercedes-Benz Viano 3.5

This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.

2. less CO2 emissions

187g/km

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

Best

Ford B-MAX Zetec (2014)

104g/km

3.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Mercedes-Benz Viano 3.5

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. smaller turn radius

11m

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.

5.5m

5.Has rear-wheel drive
Mercedes-Benz Viano 3.5

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.

6.Has a diesel engine

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.

For example
