General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Porsche Boxster GTS
Subaru WRX STI (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 Boxster GTS
Subaru WRX STI (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 four-wheel drive
Porsche Boxster GTS
Subaru WRX STI (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.
4.Has rear-wheel drive
Porsche Boxster GTS
Subaru WRX STI (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.
5.turn radius

11m

10.97m

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.
6.basic warranty (years)

4yrs

3yrs

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.

Dimensions

1.weight

1.35t

1.54t

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.width

1.96m

1.8m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
3.wheelbase

2.47m

2.65m

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).
4.maximum headroom (rear)

117mm

942mm

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.
5.cargo volume

275l

340l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
6.length

4.4m

4.59m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.

Engine

1.maximum torque

370Nm

393Nm

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.
2.Has a turbocharged engine
Porsche Boxster GTS
Subaru WRX STI (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.
3.fuel economy (highway)

9.5l/100 km

12.3l/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.
4.fuel economy (city)

12.4l/100 km

16.6l/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.horsepower

330hp

305hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
6.number of cylinders

6

4

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.

Features

1.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Porsche Boxster GTS
Subaru WRX STI (2015)
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
2.screen size (in-car system)

7"

4.3"

A bigger screen size for the in-car system provides a better user experience and is easier to use while driving.
3.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
Porsche Boxster GTS
Subaru WRX STI (2015)
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
4.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Porsche Boxster GTS
Subaru WRX STI (2015)
Height-adjustable seat belts permit passengers of different sizes to move the seat belt up or down for improved comfort. They are also especially useful for increasing the safety of children.
5.Has a rear-view camera
Porsche Boxster GTS
Subaru WRX STI (2015)
A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.
6.Has in-car system
Porsche Boxster GTS
Subaru WRX STI (2015)
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
