General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Porsche Boxster GTS
Volkswagen Golf GTI (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
Volkswagen Golf GTI (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 Boxster GTS
Volkswagen Golf GTI (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 front-wheel drive
Porsche Boxster GTS
Volkswagen Golf GTI (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.
5.drivetrain warranty (years)

8yrs

5yrs

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car, such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft, etc. Typically longer than the basic warranty, it lasts for a certain number of years.
6.drivetrain warranty (km)

130 000km

100 000km

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft etc. This is usually longer than the basic warranty. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.

Dimensions

1.weight

1.35t

1.38t

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.cargo volume

275l

671l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
3.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.
4.height

1.27m

1.44m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.maximum headroom (front)

135mm

975mm

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

117mm

967mm

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.

Speed

1.coefficient of drag

0.32Cd

0.32Cd

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.

Engine

1.maximum torque

370Nm

350Nm

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
Volkswagen Golf GTI (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.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.
4.fuel economy (combined)

10.7l/100 km

0l/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 higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
5.horsepower

330hp

210hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
6.fuel economy (city)

12.4l/100 km

9.4l/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.

Features

1.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Porsche Boxster GTS
Volkswagen Golf GTI (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"

5.8"

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
Volkswagen Golf GTI (2015)
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
4.Has smart key as standard
Porsche Boxster GTS
Volkswagen Golf GTI (2015)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
5.Has in-car system
Porsche Boxster GTS
Volkswagen Golf GTI (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.
6.number of airbags

4

6

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six, but some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags, and side curtain airbags.
