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.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.
