General info

1.Is a hybrid car
Peugeot 508 RXH (2015)
Vauxhall Astra Design Sports Tourer (2014)

Hybrid cars run on a mixture of petrol (gasoline) and electric power. They offer several benefits over traditional petrol-powered cars. For example they produce less CO2 emissions, and due to their fuel efficiency they are often cheaper to run.

2. less CO2 emissions

104g/km

137g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.

104g/km

3.Has four-wheel drive
Peugeot 508 RXH (2015)
Vauxhall Astra Design Sports Tourer (2014)

Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.

4.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Peugeot 508 RXH (2015)
Vauxhall Astra Design Sports Tourer (2014)

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.

5.Has front-wheel drive

Vauxhall Astra Design Sports Tourer (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.

Engine

1. larger engine size

2l

1.4l

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.

8.4l

2. better fuel economy (combined)

4.1l/100 km

5.8l/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.

5. higher maximum torque

300Nm

130Nm

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.

6.Has a turbocharged engine
Peugeot 508 RXH (2015)
Vauxhall Astra Design Sports Tourer (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.
