General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
BMW X5 xDrive35i (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
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.
2.drivetrain warranty (years)

4yrs

4yrs

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car, such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft, etc. Typically longer than the basic warranty, it lasts for a certain number of years.
3.Has fully independent suspension
BMW X5 xDrive35i (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
4.basic warranty (years)

4yrs

4yrs

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.
5.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
BMW X5 xDrive35i (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
A petrol (gasoline) engine offers several advantages over diesel. For example the engines tend to be lighter and cheaper than their diesel counterparts. Petrol engines also tend to have higher horsepower, and the fuel is more readily available.
6.Has rear-wheel drive
BMW X5 xDrive35i (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.

Dimensions

1.height

1.76m

1.7m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
2.width

1.94m

1.89m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
3.wheelbase

2.93m

2.76m

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
4.maximum headroom (front)

1.03m

993mm

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
5.maximum headroom (rear)

986mm

1.01m

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.
6.weight

2.12t

1.85t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

Speed

1.coefficient of drag

0.33Cd

0.35Cd

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.

Engine

1.fuel economy (city)

15.7l/100 km

14.9l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
2.maximum torque

407Nm

370Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
3.fuel tank capacity

85l

66l

A larger fuel tank is an advantage because you have to stop to refill less often.
4.horsepower

300hp

302hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
5.Has a turbocharged engine
BMW X5 xDrive35i (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
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.
6.fuel economy (highway)

10.5l/100 km

11.3l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.

Features

1.Has smart key as standard
BMW X5 xDrive35i (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
2.USB ports

1

1

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
3.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
BMW X5 xDrive35i (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (2014)
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
