Skoda Octavia Estate (2014): 27 facts and highlights

1. 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.
1.2l
Cadillac CTS-V Wagon (2014): 6.2l

2. 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.
5.1l/100 km
Citroen C5 Tourer VTR Techno Pack (2014): 3.8l/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.
175Nm
Cadillac CTS-V Wagon (2014): 747Nm

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).
2.69m
BMW Series 5 Touring 528i (2014): 2.97m

5. 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.
140mm
Skoda Fabia Estate (2014): 135mm

6. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
610l
Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen S 2.5L (2014): 929l

7. greater cargo volume (seats down)

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things. With some vehicles you can put the rear seats down in order to gain more space for cargo.
1740l
Skoda Superb Estate (2014): 1865l

8. 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.

9. 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.

10. shorter length

4.66m
SEAT Ibiza ST E (2014): 4.04m

11. 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.

104hp
Cadillac CTS-V Wagon (2014): 556hp

14. width

1.81m
Peugeot 308 SW Access (2014): 1.56m

16. 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.

Citroen C5 Tourer VTR Techno Pack (2014): 3.5l/100 km

17. height

1.47m
SEAT Ibiza ST E (2014): 1.43m

Peugeot 508 RXH (2015): 72l

19. weight

1.17t
Skoda Superb Estate (2014): 641.38kg

20. 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.
