General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
Ford Edge (2017)
Ford Escape (2017)
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)

5yrs

5yrs

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 front-wheel drive
Ford Edge (2017)
Ford Escape (2017)
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.
4.Has fully independent suspension
Ford Edge (2017)
Ford Escape (2017)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
5.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.
6.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Ford Edge (2017)
Ford Escape (2017)
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

1.74m

1.68m

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

1110l

963l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
3.cargo volume (seats down)

2078.5l

1925.5l

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.
4.width

1.93m

1.84m

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

2.85m

2.69m

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)

1.02m

1.01m

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

Engine

1.fuel economy (city)

11.76l/100 km

10.2l/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

373Nm

240Nm

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.horsepower

245hp

179hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
4.fuel economy (combined)

10.2l/100 km

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 higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
5.Has a turbocharged engine
Ford Edge (2017)
Ford Escape (2017)
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)

8.71l/100 km

7.8l/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.

Features

1.number of airbags

14

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.
2.Has a rear-view camera
Ford Edge (2017)
Ford Escape (2017)
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.Has in-car system
Ford Edge (2017)
Ford Escape (2017)
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.
4.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Ford Edge (2017)
Ford Escape (2017)
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.
5.Has smart key as standard
Ford Edge (2017)
Ford Escape (2017)
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.
6.USB ports
