Scion tC (2014): 33 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.
12.3l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 5.3l/100 km

2. 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.
9.1l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 4.2l/100 km

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.
233Nm
Tesla Roadster: 10000Nm

4. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
179hp
Opel VXR8 GTS (2014): 585hp

5. 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.

6. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
416l
Tesla Model S 70 (2016): 894l

7. 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.
958mm
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.08m

8. height

1.42m
Audi S4 Premium Plus (2014): 1.41m

9. 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).
2.7m
Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014): 3.57m

10. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
55l
Audi A8 (2014): 90.1l

11. weight

1.4t
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.85kg

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
Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014): 10m

13. more valves

An intake valve allows the air/fuel mixture to enter the combustion chamber. An engine with more valves tends to increase performance.
16
Rolls-Royce Ghost II (2014): 48

14. 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.
10.9l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 4.6l/100 km

15. more headroom (rear)

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.
925mm
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.05m

16. Has Bluetooth

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows you to easily transfer data between different devices, such as smartphones, tablets and computers.

19. Has Stop-Start system

A Stop-Start system automatically turns off the engine when stopping in traffic or at a red light, and seamlessly starts it again when pressure is applied to the accelerator. This saves fuel and is more ecological.

20. longer basic warranty (km)

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.
57936km
Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014): 96561km

21. longer drivetrain warranty (km)

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.
96561km
Chevrolet SS (2014): 160934km

22. 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.

23. 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.

24. 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.

Rolls-Royce Ghost II (2014): 12

25. 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.
