Different toilets are of different lengths from front to back.
This really matters. We’ve had customers buy toilets that would not fit into their space because the toilet flange (what the base of the toilet bolts onto) was too close to the back wall.
Different toilets have you sit at different distances from the floor.
Just as the name implies, what moves the water from the tank into the bowl is the force of gravity.

In this day and age of not quite perpetual drought in California, low flow is goodness. However some low flow toilets flush poorly, so once you’ve flushed them 3 times for one disposal, you may as well have used a non low flush toilet.
