1.68m
Volvo XC70 (2015): 917mm

3. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
59.5l
Chevrolet Suburban LT AWD (2015): 117l

4. greater cargo volume (seats down)

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.
1925.5l
Chevrolet Suburban LT AWD (2015): 3429l

5. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
963l
Ford Explorer (2017): 2313.5l

6. Has a turbocharged engine

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.

7. better fuel economy (city)

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.
10.2l/100 km
Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014): 3l/100 km

8. width

1.84m
Suzuki Jimny (2014): 1.6m

9. longer drivetrain warranty (years)

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft etc. This is usually longer than the basic warranty. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
5yrs
Mitsubishi Pajero (2017): 10yrs

10. smaller turn radius

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.
11.83m
Suzuki Jimny (2014): 9.8m

11. longer wheelbase

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).
2.69m
Chevrolet Suburban LT AWD (2015): 3.3m

12. more airbags

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

Ford Edge (2017): 14

13. higher maximum torque

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.
240Nm
Lamborghini Urus (2019): 850Nm

14. Has in-car system

An in-car system (eg. Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) gives you extra functionality, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.

16. better fuel economy (highway)

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.
7.8l/100 km
Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 Active (2014): 3.4l/100 km

17. larger engine size

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.
1.5l
Cadillac Escalade (2015): 6.2l

18. more headroom (rear)

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.
990.6mm
Ford Explorer (2017): 1.03m

19. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
179hp
Faraday Future FF 91: 1050hp

20. more headroom (front)

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
1.01m
GMC Yukon SLE (2015): 1.09m

21. lower ground clearance

The ground clearance is the distance between the lowest point of the car and the road surface. A shorter ground clearance lowers a vehicle’s center of gravity - increasing its handling ability and reducing the chance of a rollover. However, a higher ground clearance allows you to go over more uneven terrain.
198mm
Toyota RAV4 LE (2014): 106mm

22. Has front-wheel drive

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.
