Cylinder layout

V-type > inline
A V engine is a developed construction of a straight engine which as far as we are concerned is a better choice. Engine of V type inside a car the Nissan GT-R gives more torque at lower RPM ranges because of the power stroke coming from 2 sides of the crankshaft. This type of engime may house high numbers of cylinders without significant growth in its size. A Better engine work and pleasant sound is to driving fans certainly to a Vee engine’s advantage.
0

Transmission

automatic > manual
A stick shift with which the Volkswagen is equipped is less complex construction and is cheaper in usage, however, also it is less comfortable as there is no need to put on clutch and shift speeds very often, especialy in a congested city traffic where we have lots of stop and go conditions. An automatic transmission which is in the Nissan with gears in the amount of 6 – speeds transmission is in our opinion better one to have.
