Opel VXR8 GTS (2014): 22 facts and highlights

1. better fuel economy (city)

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.
18.2l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 5.3l/100 km

2. higher maximum torque

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.
740Nm
Tesla Roadster: 10000Nm

3. better fuel economy (highway)

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.
9.6l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 4.2l/100 km

4. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
585hp
Opel VXR8 GTS (2014): 585hp

5. Has in-car system

An in-car system (eg. Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) gives you extra functionality, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.

6. height

1.46m
Audi S4 Premium Plus (2014): 1.41m

7. Has a turbocharged engine

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.

8. Has rear-wheel drive

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.

9. Has a petrol (gasoline) engine

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.

17. larger engine size

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.
6.2l
Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014): 6.7l

18. more cylinders

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.
