English term or phrase: on points
"Emotionally, this car beats anything from the Mercedes and BMW. And on points, it beats its sister (the Aston Martin V8 Vantage) as well."
Que veut dire "on points" ? Au niveau des performances ? Merci !

en termes de points


Explanation:
Il doit s'agir d'un système de classement/notation par points entre les voitures.

En termes de points, les Lyonnais de 2006-2007 avaient fait aussi bien que ceux de 2008-2009 avec 19 points marqués en sept matches mais l'équipe actuelle fait mieux en termes d'avance sur le deuxième.

lors des tests


Explanation:
Je pense qu'il s'agit des points attribués lors des tests des performances de chaque voiture. Mais cela dépend des tests, il peut aussi y avoir des catégories comme le style, le confort etc. Donc je dirais "lors des tests".

Explanation:
To beat on points, as in boxing.
i.e. No knockout, but winning on points allocated by judges.

Otherwise I would have expected "on CERTAIN points,".
