BMW X1 xDrive28i (2014): 27 facts and highlights

1. height

1.54m
Volvo XC70 (2015): 917mm

2. Has four-wheel drive

Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.

3. Has a turbocharged engine

A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.

Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG (2014): 759Nm

10. larger engine size

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
2l
Cadillac Escalade (2015): 6.2l

11. Has Bluetooth

BMW X6 M (2014): 555hp

15. longer basic warranty (years)

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
4yrs
Hyundai Santa Fe Limited (2014): 5yrs

16. more headroom (front)

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
1.05m
GMC Yukon SLE (2015): 1.09m

17. more headroom (rear)
