Due to having the weight of the engine over the drive wheels it also benefits from increased traction.

2. smaller turn radius

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.
