General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
?

Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.

2.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.

3.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.

4.drivetrain warranty (years)
?

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car, such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft, etc. Typically longer than the basic warranty, it lasts for a certain number of years.
