General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
Ford Edge (2017)
Mercedes-Benz G550 (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. longer basic warranty (years)

3yrs

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.

Unlimited yrs

3.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Ford Edge (2017)
Mercedes-Benz G550 (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.

4. longer basic warranty (km)

60000km

Engine

1. better fuel economy (city)

11.76l/100 km

23.5l/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.

Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014)

3l/100 km

2.Has a turbocharged engine
Ford Edge (2017)
Mercedes-Benz G550 (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.

3. higher maximum torque

373Nm

530Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful car, and is also a good indication of its acceleration.

4. larger engine size

2l

5.5l

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.
