Ford Escape (2017) vs Volvo XC70 (2015): 31 facts in comparison

1. height

767mm shorter.
1.68m
Volvo XC70 (2015): 917mm
917mm

2. Has four-wheel drive

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.

3. Has a rear-view camera

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.

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.

Chevrolet Suburban LT AWD (2015): 3429l
2041l

5. 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
70l

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. width

38mm narrower.

Suzuki Jimny (2014): 1.6m
1.88m

8. 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
9.8l/100 km

9. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
963l
Ford Explorer (2017): 2313.5l
943l

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
11.5m

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
2.81m

12. 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
258Nm

13. 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

14. 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
7.6l/100 km

15. 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.

18. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
179hp
Faraday Future FF 91: 1050hp
240hp

19. Has height-adjustable seat belts

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.

GMC Yukon SLE (2015): 1.09m
985mm

21. 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.

Ford Explorer (2017): 1.03m
986mm

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.

24. weight

121kg lighter.
1.6t
Mitsubishi ASX (2017): 1.32kg
