Technical Specifications

You can compare the technical specifications for each car across a wide range of details including:

  • Performance (top speed, 0-62mph time, engine power, etc)
  • Emissions such as carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide output for combustion engines
  • The engine and gearbox configuration
  • Fuel consumption for combustion engine cars ('TEL' values measure at the lowest number of opions, 'TEH' at the highest number of options)
  • Battery range and recharge times for eletric cars
  • Wheel and tyre sizes
  • Dimensions for length, height, width, etc
  • Vehicle weights and towing capabilities
  • Safety ratings from NCAP for combustion engine and electric cars
  • The manufacturer's warranty years/mileage limits for the vehicle

Standard Equipment

We have summarised the typical standard equipment lists of cars so that you can compare cars side-by-side.

We show whether or not the equipment is provided as standard in the price of the car or is an optional extra.

Where the item is standard you will see a '' in the table. Where the item isn't standard we display a '-' symbol.

Sometimes the item may only be available as part of a pack of options (e.g. bluetooth, satellite navigation and a head-up display) in which case we display the 'pack' price rather than individual option prices).

Standard equipment is displayed under the categories:

  • Comfort (air conditioning/climate controltop speed, air suspension, etc)
  • Safety (airbags, collision avoidance braking, etc)
  • Security (alarm, immobiliser, etc)
  • Entertainment (DVD player, bluetooth interface, etc)
  • Exterior features (alloy wheels, electrically adjustable door mirrors, etc)
