Subaru BRZ (2014): 32 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.
2l
SRT Viper (2014): 8.4l

2. 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
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1566Nm

3. shorter length

4.23m
Lotus Elise (2014): 3.82m

4. height

Gumpert Apollo: 1.11m

5. width

1.77m
Lotus Elise (2014): 1.72m

6. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
200hp
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1244hp

7. 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. weight

1.25t
Alfa Romeo 4C: 895kg

11. 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).
2.57m
Ferrari FF (2014): 2.99m

12. 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.

13. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
195l
Dodge Challenger R/T (2014): 459l

16. 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.
12.8l/100 km
Lotus Elise (2014): 8.3l/100 km

17. 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.

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.
50l
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport: 100l

21. USB ports

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

Aston Martin V8 Vantage (2008): 2

22. 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.
889mm
Dodge Challenger SXT (2014): 950mm

23. more valves

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

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport: 64

24. 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.
942mm
Dodge Challenger (2015): 998mm

25. 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.
