General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
BMW X6 M (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GL450 4MATIC (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.turn radius

12.8m

12.4m

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.
3.Has fully independent suspension
BMW X6 M (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GL450 4MATIC (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.Has air suspension
BMW X6 M (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GL450 4MATIC (2014)
Air suspension offers a smoother ride than the traditional steel spring suspension. It is also often adjustable, allowing you to raise or lower it based on the type of driving you are doing.
5.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
BMW X6 M (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GL450 4MATIC (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.

Dimensions

1.height

1.68m

1.85m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
2.cargo volume (seats down)

1691l

2656l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things. With some vehicles you can put the rear seats down in order to gain more space for cargo.
3.width

1.98m

2.14m

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

2.93m

3.08m

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).
5.maximum headroom (front)

973mm

1.05m

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

945mm

1.02m

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.

Speed

1.coefficient of drag

0.38Cd

0.38Cd

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)

23.5l/100 km

20.2l/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

678Nm

550Nm

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

99.9l

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

555hp

362hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
5.Has a turbocharged engine
BMW X6 M (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GL450 4MATIC (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)

16.6l/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.

Features

1.Has in-car system
BMW X6 M (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GL450 4MATIC (2014)
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
2.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
BMW X6 M (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GL450 4MATIC (2014)
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
3.Has smart key as standard
BMW X6 M (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GL450 4MATIC (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.
4.USB ports

1

0

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
5.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
BMW X6 M (2014)
Mercedes-Benz GL450 4MATIC (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.
