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.
441Nm
Tesla Model S P90D (2016): 967Nm

3. Has smart key as standard

A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.

328hp
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. Has regenerative braking

Hybrids and electric cars use regenerative braking, which captures the kinetic energy produced by braking and converts it into electricity. This then charges the battery, effectively increasing the car’s fuel efficiency.

7. Is an electric car

An electric car runs off a battery that can be recharged at home or at public charging points. Due to the savings costs of electricity compared to petrol (gasoline) it can greatly reduce running costs, and is also better for the environment as the car produces 0 emissions.

8. greater cargo volume

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

9. 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.
986mm
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.08m

10. further range

The maximum distance an electric or hybrid car can travel on electric only, from a full charge (EPA-estimated driving range).
377km
Tesla Model S 90D (2016): 473km

11. 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.

13. 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.
897mm
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.05m

14. 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.

18. 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.
80467km
Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014): 96561km

19. 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).
2.96m
Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014): 3.57m

20. 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.

23. 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.
11.3m
Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014): 10m

24. bigger screen size

A bigger screen size for the in-car system provides a better user experience, and is easier to use whilst driving.
17"
Jaguar XF (2014): 178"

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.
