It's like the difference between an older model Ford and a new, turbo-charged BMW. The Ford may not be flashy or look like much, but it's familiar and comfortable and it does get you there in the end.
But oh my god what a Beamer. One word: performance. High-power, super-charged machine. What a ride! I'm talking G-forces here, honeychild.
(And it case you havn't glommed on yet, this has nothing whatsoever to do with cars.)
