Volvo S60 (2014): 33 facts and highlights

1. Has a rear-view camera

A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.

2. 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.
11l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 5.3l/100 km

3. 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.
240Nm
Tesla Roadster: 10000Nm

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.
7.8l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 4.2l/100 km

5. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
180hp
Opel VXR8 GTS (2014): 585hp

6. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
380l
Tesla Model S 70 (2016): 894l

7. Has a turbocharged engine

A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.

8. height

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

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.
999mm
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.08m

10. 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

11. 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.

12. more airbags

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six as some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags and side curtain airbags.

Mercedes-Benz E250 BlueTEC Sedan (2014): 11

13. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
67.5l
Audi A8 (2014): 90.1l

14. 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.
80000km
Chevrolet SS (2014): 160934km

15. 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.
9.1l/100 km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 4.6l/100 km

16. 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.
80000km
Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014): 96561km

17. 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.

18. 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.
951mm
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.05m

19. weight

1.61t
Volkswagen Jetta (2014): 1.85kg

20. USB ports

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
1
Tesla Model S 70 (2016): 2

21. 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

22. 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).
2.78m
Rolls-Royce Phantom (2014): 3.57m

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.
0.28Cd
Tesla Model S P85 (2014): 0.24Cd

24. greater payload capacity

The total weight of cargo that can be carried in the cab and cargo bed, including passengers.
1.6t
Volvo S80 (2015): 2t

25. less CO2 emissions

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
159g/km
Citroen C5 HDi 115 (2014): 120g/km
