General info

1.Has fully independent suspension
Mitsubishi Mirage DE (2015)
Opel Corsa VXR (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.
2.turn radius

9.2m

10.1m

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.
3.CO2 emissions

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Mitsubishi Mirage DE (2015))

172g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
4.Has a diesel engine
Mitsubishi Mirage DE (2015)
Opel Corsa VXR (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.
5.Has front-wheel drive
Mitsubishi Mirage DE (2015)
Opel Corsa VXR (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.
6.Has dual-clutch transmission
Mitsubishi Mirage DE (2015)
Opel Corsa VXR (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.
7.Has air suspension
Mitsubishi Mirage DE (2015)
Opel Corsa VXR (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.
8.Euro NCAP rating

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Mitsubishi Mirage DE (2015))

5

The European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) carries out safety tests for new vehicles, providing an overall rating for each car’s safety. It covers different areas such as safety for an adult occupant, child occupant or pedestrian.
9.Is an electric car
Mitsubishi Mirage DE (2015)
Opel Corsa VXR (2014)
An electric car runs off a battery that can be recharged at home or at public charging points. Due to the savings costs of electricity compared to petrol (gasoline) it can greatly reduce running costs, and is also better for the environment as the car produces 0 emissions.

Dimensions

1.length

3.78m

4m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things. With some vehicles you can put the rear seats down in order to gain more space for cargo.
3.cargo volume

487l

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Opel Corsa VXR (2014))

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
4.wheelbase

2.45m

2.51m

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).
5.width

1.67m

1.74m

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

1.5m

1.49m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
7.Has vertically-opening doors
Mitsubishi Mirage DE (2015)
Opel Corsa VXR (2014)
Vertically-opening doors are useful for when parking in tight spaces, and are aesthetically pleasing.
8.interior volume

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Mitsubishi Mirage DE (2015))

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Opel Corsa VXR (2014))

A larger interior volume makes for a more comfortable driving experience, giving more space for you and your passengers.
9.ground clearance

160mm

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Opel Corsa VXR (2014))

The ground clearance is the distance between the lowest point of the car and the road surface. A shorter ground clearance lowers a vehicle’s center of gravity - increasing its handling ability and reducing the chance of a rollover. However, a higher ground clearance allows you to go over more uneven terrain.

Speed

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 100-200 kilometres per hour.
6.Nürburgring lap time

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Mitsubishi Mirage DE (2015))

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Opel Corsa VXR (2014))

The Nürburgring race circuit is widely considered to be the most challenging in the world, and the fastest lap times are seen as the ultimate test of a car’s performance. (Source: Nürburgring Lap Times)
7.coefficient of drag

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Mitsubishi Mirage DE (2015))

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Opel Corsa VXR (2014))

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.

Engine

1.fuel economy (city)

7.6l/100 km

9.8l/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.
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.
3.fuel economy (highway)

6.4l/100 km

5.9l/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.
4.fuel economy (combined)

7.1l/100 km

7.3l/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 higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
5.Has a turbocharged engine
Mitsubishi Mirage DE (2015)
Opel Corsa VXR (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.power-to-weight ratio

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Mitsubishi Mirage DE (2015))

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Opel Corsa VXR (2014))

The power-to-weight ratio is a measurement of the performance of a car, based on the amount of power its engine can produce per kg of weight.
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.
An intake valve allows the air/fuel mixture to enter the combustion chamber. An engine with more valves tends to increase performance.
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.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Mitsubishi Mirage DE (2015)
Opel Corsa VXR (2014)
Height-adjustable seat belts permit passengers of different sizes to move the seat belt up or down for improved comfort. They are also especially useful for increasing the safety of children.
6.screen size (in-car system)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Opel Corsa VXR (2014))

A bigger screen size for the in-car system provides a better user experience and is easier to use while driving.
Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six, but some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags, and side curtain airbags.
8.Has regenerative braking
Mitsubishi Mirage DE (2015)
Opel Corsa VXR (2014)
Regenerative braking captures the kinetic energy produced by braking and converts it into electricity to charge the battery.
9.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Mitsubishi Mirage DE (2015)
Opel Corsa VXR (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.
