General info

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

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 fully independent suspension
Ford Edge (2017)
Ford Kuga Zetec (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)

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.
5.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Ford Edge (2017)
Ford Kuga Zetec (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.basic warranty (km)

60 000km

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.

Dimensions

1.height

1.74m

1.69m

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

1110l

406l

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

2078.5l

1603l

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.weight

1.78t

1.58t

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.
6.length

4.78m

4.52m

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

Engine

1.fuel economy (city)

11.76l/100 km

8.3l/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.
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

148hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
4.Has a turbocharged engine
Ford Edge (2017)
Ford Kuga Zetec (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.
5.fuel economy (combined)

10.2l/100 km

6.6l/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.
6.fuel economy (highway)

8.71l/100 km

5.6l/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.
