General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
Ford Edge (2017)
Volvo XC60 (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.Has front-wheel drive
Ford Edge (2017)
Volvo XC60 (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.
3.Has fully independent suspension
Ford Edge (2017)
Volvo XC60 (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.
4.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Ford Edge (2017)
Volvo XC60 (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.

Dimensions

1.height

1.74m

1.64m

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

1110l

1909l

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

1.93m

1.9m

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

2.85m

2.77m

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).
5.maximum headroom (front)

1.02m

965mm

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

1.02m

966mm

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.

Engine

1.fuel economy (city)

11.76l/100 km

9.8l/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.
2.maximum torque

373Nm

258Nm

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

240hp

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

10.2l/100 km

8.5l/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 higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
5.Has a turbocharged engine
Ford Edge (2017)
Volvo XC60 (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)

8.71l/100 km

7.6l/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.

Features

1.number of airbags

14

6

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)
Volvo XC60 (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.Has in-car system
Ford Edge (2017)
Volvo XC60 (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.
4.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Ford Edge (2017)
Volvo XC60 (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.
5.Has smart key as standard
Ford Edge (2017)
Volvo XC60 (2015)
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.Has regenerative braking
Ford Edge (2017)
Volvo XC60 (2015)
Hybrids and electric cars use regenerative braking, which captures the kinetic energy produced by braking and converts it into electricity. This then charges the battery, effectively increasing the car’s fuel efficiency.
