General info

1.turn radius

11.83m

11.8m

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.
2.drivetrain warranty (years)

5yrs

4yrs

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 Escape (2017)
Mercedes-Benz ML350 (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.Has front-wheel drive
Ford Escape (2017)
Mercedes-Benz ML350 (2014)
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.
5.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.
6.Has rear-wheel drive
Ford Escape (2017)
Mercedes-Benz ML350 (2014)
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.

Dimensions

1.height

1.68m

1.8m

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

963l

1082l

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

1925.5l

2274l

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

1.84m

2.14m

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

2.69m

2.92m

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)

1.01m

988mm

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)

10.2l/100 km

16.6l/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.
2.maximum torque

240Nm

370Nm

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.fuel tank capacity

59.5l

93l

A larger fuel tank is an advantage because you have to stop to refill less often.
4.horsepower

179hp

302hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
5.Has a turbocharged engine
Ford Escape (2017)
Mercedes-Benz ML350 (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.
6.fuel economy (highway)

7.8l/100 km

12.8l/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

7

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 Escape (2017)
Mercedes-Benz ML350 (2014)
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 Escape (2017)
Mercedes-Benz ML350 (2014)
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 Escape (2017)
Mercedes-Benz ML350 (2014)
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 stolen vehicle tracking system
Ford Escape (2017)
Mercedes-Benz ML350 (2014)
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
6.Has smart key as standard
Ford Escape (2017)
Mercedes-Benz ML350 (2014)
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.
