1. faster top speed

The fastest speed that the car can reach.
266km/h
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 447km/h

2. larger engine size

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.
2.7l
SRT Viper (2014): 8.4l

3. faster acceleration (0-100)

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
5.7s
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport: 2.5s

4. 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.
290Nm
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1566Nm

5. shorter length

4.38m
Lotus Elise (2014): 3.82m

6. width

1.8m
Lotus Elise (2014): 1.72m

7. height

1.29m
Gumpert Apollo: 1.11m

8. less CO2 emissions

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
195g/km
BMW i8 (2014): 49g/km

9. Has rear-wheel drive

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.

10. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
275hp
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1244hp

11. weight

1.33t
Alfa Romeo 4C: 895kg

12. better fuel economy (highway)

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.
6.4l/100 km
Lotus Elise (2014): 5l/100 km

13. better fuel economy (combined)

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.
8.4l/100 km
BMW i8 (2014): 2.1l/100 km

14. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
280l
Dodge Challenger R/T (2014): 459l

15. more cylinders

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.

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport: 16

16. lower coefficient of drag

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 economy.
0.3Cd
Nissan GT-R (2014): 0.26Cd

17. 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).
2.48m
Ferrari FF (2014): 2.99m

18. better 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.
11.8l/100 km
Lotus Elise (2014): 8.3l/100 km

19. Has a petrol (gasoline) engine

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.

20. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
64l
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport: 100l

21. USB ports

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
