General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
BMW X6 M (2014)
Volvo XC90 (2015)
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

12m

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.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.
4.Has front-wheel drive
BMW X6 M (2014)
Volvo XC90 (2015)
Front-wheel drive is the most common type of drivetrain and offers several advantages. It is cheaper to manufacture (reducing the cost of the vehicle) and also lighter which helps improve fuel economy. Due to having the weight of the engine over the drive wheels it also benefits from increased traction.
5.Has fully independent suspension
BMW X6 M (2014)
Volvo XC90 (2015)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
6.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.

Dimensions

1.height

1.68m

1.78m

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

2639l

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.cargo volume

722l

249l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
4.width

1.98m

1.94m

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

2.93m

2.86m

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).
6.maximum headroom (front)

973mm

975mm

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

Speed

1.coefficient of drag

0.38Cd

0.36Cd

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

15l/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

236Nm

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

80l

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

555hp

240hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
5.Has a turbocharged engine
BMW X6 M (2014)
Volvo XC90 (2015)
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

9.4l/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 a rear-view camera
BMW X6 M (2014)
Volvo XC90 (2015)
A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.
2.Has in-car system
BMW X6 M (2014)
Volvo XC90 (2015)
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.
3.Has height-adjustable seat belts
BMW X6 M (2014)
Volvo XC90 (2015)
Height-adjustable seat belts permit passengers of different sizes to move the seat belt up or down for improved comfort. They are also especially useful for increasing the safety of children.
4.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
BMW X6 M (2014)
Volvo XC90 (2015)
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
5.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
BMW X6 M (2014)
Volvo XC90 (2015)
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
