General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
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.
2.Has fully independent suspension
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
3.Has rear-wheel drive
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
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.
4.Has four-wheel drive
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
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.
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.
6.Has a diesel engine
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
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.
7.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
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.
8.Is an electric car
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
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.
9.Has front-wheel drive
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
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.

Dimensions

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.Has vertically-opening doors
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
Vertically-opening doors are useful for when parking in tight spaces, and are aesthetically pleasing.
3.interior volume

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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.
5.cargo volume

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
6.cargo volume (seats down)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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.
7.maximum headroom (front)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
8.maximum headroom (rear)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.
9.rear bed dimensions

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The rear bed of a pickup truck is the open-top area for storing cargo. A greater area means you can carry larger loads.

Speed

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
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)
The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 100-200 kilometres per hour.
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.
6.acceleration time (0-60 km/h)

Engine

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.
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.
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.
Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
5.Has a turbocharged engine
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
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.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.
7.fuel economy (highway)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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.
8.power-to-weight ratio

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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.
