Peugeot 301 Berline (2014): 0l/100 km

3. Has front-wheel drive

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.

220Nm
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 400Nm

5. better fuel economy (combined)

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.
3.8l/100 km
Peugeot 301 Berline (2014): 0l/100 km

6. longer wheelbase

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).
2.5m
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 3.07m

7. Has fully independent suspension
