Renault Megane Hatch (2014): 36 facts and highlights

1. 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).
2.64m
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 3.07m

2. Has front-wheel drive

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.

3. 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.
7l/100 km
Peugeot 301 Berline (2014): 0l/100 km

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.
205Nm
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 400Nm

5. 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.
5.6l/100 km
Peugeot 301 Berline (2014): 0l/100 km

6. smaller turn radius

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.
11.1m
Scion iQ2 (2014): 4.2m

7. 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.
4.8l/100 km
Peugeot 301 Berline (2014): 0l/100 km

8. Has fully independent suspension

This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.

9. less CO2 emissions

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
132g/km
Nissan Leaf Acenta (2014): 0g/km

10. shorter length

4.3m
Renault Twizy EV 13kW (2014): 2.34m

11. Has ISOFIX/LATCH

ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.

12. longer basic warranty (years)

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.
5yrs
Nissan Versa Note S (2014): 160000yrs

13. Has a turbocharged engine

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.
