Volkswagen Golf GTI (2015): 38 facts and highlights

1. 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.
9.4l/100 km
Peugeot 301 Berline (2014): 0l/100 km

2. 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.

3. 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.
6.9l/100 km
Peugeot 301 Berline (2014): 0l/100 km

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).

BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 3.07m

5. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
671l
Mini Clubman (2014): 1068l

6. 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.
350Nm
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 400Nm

7. 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.
0l/100 km
Peugeot 301 Berline (2014): 0l/100 km

8. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
50l
Kia Rio LX (2015): 73l

9. shorter length

4.27m
Renault Twizy EV 13kW (2014): 2.34m

10. Has ISOFIX/LATCH

ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.

16. 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.
0.32Cd
Toyota Prius Two (2014): 0.25Cd

17. more valves

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

210hp
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 306hp

19. width

1.8m
Peugeot 208 Allure (2014): 1m

20. more cylinders

21. 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.
