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.
163Nm
Tesla Roadster: 10000Nm

3. 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.
4.36l/100 km
Honda Clarity Electric (2017): 1.87l/100 km

4. 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.

Honda Clarity Electric (2017): 2.28l/100 km

5. 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.

6. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
121hp
Opel VXR8 GTS (2014): 585hp

7. 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.

9. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
696.6l
Tesla Model S 70 (2016): 894l

10. USB ports

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

Honda Clarity Fuel Cell (2017): 2

11. 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.
1m
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.08m

12. height

1.48m
Audi S4 Premium Plus (2014): 1.41m

13. 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.
10.21m
Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014): 10m

14. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
42.8l
Toyota Mirai (2017): 122.4l

15. more valves

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

Rolls-Royce Ghost II (2014): 48

16. 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.
950mm
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.05m

17. Is a hybrid car

Hybrid cars run on a mixture of petrol (gasoline) and electric power. They offer several benefits over traditional petrol-powered cars. For example they produce less CO2 emissions, and due to their fuel efficiency they are often cheaper to run.

18. 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.
4.52l/100 km
Honda Clarity Electric (2017): 2.06l/100 km

19. 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.
100000km
Chevrolet SS (2014): 160934km

20. 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

21. shorter length

4.54m
Subaru Impreza 5-Door 2.0i (2014): 4.42m

22. 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.
60000km
Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014): 96561km

23. lower coefficient of drag

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel economy.
0.24Cd
Toyota Prius (2017): 0.24Cd

24. width

1.76m
Nissan Versa Sedan S (2015): 1.69m

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.
