Renault Megane RS 265 (2014): 38 facts and highlights

1. 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.
9.8l/100 km
Peugeot 301 Berline (2014): 0l/100 km

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. 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.
360Nm
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 400Nm

4. 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).
2.65m
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 3.07m

5. 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.

7. less CO2 emissions

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
174g/km
Nissan Leaf Acenta (2014): 0g/km

8. Has in-car system

An in-car system (eg. Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) gives you extra functionality, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.

9. 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.
7.5l/100 km
Peugeot 301 Berline (2014): 0l/100 km

10. 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.
6.2l/100 km
Peugeot 301 Berline (2014): 0l/100 km

11. shorter length

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

12. 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.
11.4m
Scion iQ2 (2014): 4.2m

13. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
343l
Mini Clubman (2014): 1068l

14. weight

1.37t
Opel Ampera Positiv (2014): 1.69kg

15. more valves

An intake valve allows the air/fuel mixture to enter the combustion chamber. An engine with more valves tends to increase performance.

BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 24

16. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
261hp
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 306hp

17. 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.

18. 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.

19. greater payload capacity

The total weight of cargo that can be carried in the cab and cargo bed, including passengers.
461kg
Fiat Panda 1.2 (2014): 800kg

20. Has stolen vehicle tracking system

The vehicle has a tracking system that utilises GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.

Ford Fiesta ST (2014): 6

22. width

1.85m
Peugeot 208 Allure (2014): 1m

23. height

1.83m
Honda CR-Z (2014): 1.39m

24. lower ground clearance

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.
120mm
SEAT Altea 1.6 TDI (2014): 66mm

25. more headroom (front)

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