Peugeot 308 Active (2014): 39 facts and highlights

1. 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.
150Nm
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 400Nm

2. 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).
2.62m
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 3.07m

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.

7. smaller turn radius

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.
5.2m
Scion iQ2 (2014): 4.2m

8. Has fully independent suspension

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