General info

1.Has front-wheel drive
Dodge Grand Caravan SXT (2014)
Subaru Forester 2.5i (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.
2.basic warranty (km)

57 936km

57 936km

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.
3.basic warranty (years)

3yrs

3yrs

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.
4.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine

Subaru Forester 2.5i (2015)
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.
5.Has fully independent suspension

Subaru Forester 2.5i (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.Has four-wheel drive
Dodge Grand Caravan SXT (2014)
Subaru Forester 2.5i (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.

Dimensions

1.cargo volume

935l

974l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
2.height

1.75m

1.69m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
3.maximum headroom (front)

1.01m

1.05m

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

2m

1.8m

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

3.08m

2.64m

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.length

5.15m

4.59m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.

Engine

1.fuel economy (highway)

11.3l/100 km

9.7l/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.fuel economy (city)

16.6l/100 km

12.8l/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.
3.horsepower

283hp

170hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
4.fuel tank capacity

75.7l

60l

A larger fuel tank is an advantage because you have to stop to refill less often.
5.number of valves

24

16

An intake valve allows the air/fuel mixture to enter the combustion chamber. An engine with more valves tends to increase performance.
6.engine size

3.6l

2.5l

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.

Features

1.Has ISOFIX/LATCH

Subaru Forester 2.5i (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.
2.Has a rear-view camera

Subaru Forester 2.5i (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.
3.number of airbags

8

7

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six, but some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags, and side curtain airbags.
4.Has height-adjustable seat belts
